Vogue 8833 - Progress on the muslin
Can you say shiny?
This version was made from a Black Japanese herringbone cotton, it has a sheen on the right side.
After tissue fitting, it was apparent that the front wrap was going to gap. This lead to adding a tuck where the tie is attached to the front panel (on both right and left sides).

So far the adjustments are
+ adding length to the front pieces (about 2 1/2" which was done not on the pattern but at the time of cutting)
+ adding length to the shoulder front and back (cut the next size up at the shoulder)
+ adding fabric for the tuck at the front tie
- shortening the ties 12" (I may add the length back in or remove it altogether and replace it with a button closure)
Since dropping the waist, the proportions are a little off, so the hemline is exactly where I would like it to be. For the final version I'll add 7/8" to the hem for the turn up.
