Vogue 8833 - tissue fitting
This is a funny pattern, although it is fitted for cup sizes, the front hem rides up so that will need to be
corrected. What's not apparent from the photo is that it has front and back princess seams as well as darts, so you can achieve a very close fit.
Back waist placement - ok
Front waist placement, my waist is about 1 1/2" below the pattern's
Also the crossover on the front is very high, the tie placement is also very high, so onto tweaking. If you are
going to make this adjustment, take into consideration the valley between the breasts, I have several bras that fill that area out, and others that do not. So if you wear a cami, or something that bridges the area between the bust points, the cross over will need to be a longer length, if the cross over falls between than it will be shorter (clear as mud right?)
The shoulder seam comes past the shoulder to the front bodice, and I will need to add a bit to that, as I'm coming up short on the front for that 5/8" seam.
