For this smaller sized Elisalex bodice I did all of the same pattern alterations as the first time, with the exception of increasing the diameter of the sleeves. One new change was made, the front of the sleeve cap was flattened to compensate for the 3/8" taken out of the front princess line seam. Here I was wondering why there was so much ease in the front sleeve with a forward shoulder adjustment made. Ummmm because you removed 3/4" of armhole diameter without adjusting the sleeve Heather. Ooops.
Now about this fabric, it's a Milly cotton sateen with.......wait for it.....an ivory background. Past Heather really had an ivory background buying problem. This fabric should have gone in the "give to other people with warm complexions" pile. But as you can see I greedily held on it it cause poppies and reasons related to poppies. I hope you can forgive me.
