Okay, so I put it on, and it was way too big. And it was going so well too! Thankfully, I’m pretty sure the bodice is fine, it was just too long, which I can handle, so I marked a spot and frogged back to my marker, and am started the ribbing earlier than the pattern states. Hopefully I’m not wrong and screwing myself over, because right now this is what I’m seeing and it makes me very sad.
The upside is this!
It really could be worse. I had it on, and it looks how I think it should look. I think my problem was measuring from my armhole, rather than the actual length of the piece. I would love to blame that on the pattern, but it’s just not realistic. Anyway, so this is where the ribbing is going to start, once I get the pattern to the right spot for it. Big set-back, but I really want to be able to wear this one!
