If you're a follower of my facebook page, Sewing By Ti, then you've seen that I've been working hard to perfect my Sisboom Angie. That was all so I could participate in the Sisboom Angie Hack-a-thon.
I was SO torn about participating in this tour. Could I even come up with something new? Plus, I was still struggling to figure out how I wanted my Angie to look and how to achieve that. UGH! Then, I came up with a great idea only to find out that someone else was already doing it. <sigh>
Now I know you're probably thinking, "I can't do that!" However, I have the perfect youtube video to have you turning every bust dart into a princess seam!
Let me point out, this is NOT my video. This video belongs to Chris White. Chris White is my new sewing super hero. He even has a website for a class to teach you pattern drafting and fitting as well as just a valuable blog. It is on my list of things to read and report back on really soon.
I did pull up the waist seam as everyone seemed to suggest on my fit check photos from the previous week, but I'm not sure which I like better. The higher bodice does make my waist look smaller BUT, it also makes the whole bodice area look shorter, which makes the gathered skirt look a bit too puffy. The lower waist makes my body look more square, but it definitely feels more balanced vertically. I'm thinking of adding lace to the bottom hem (I fear I made this one too short). You decide.
