Update post – Rhapsody blouse and Lutterloh dress.

I have taken a couple of photos of me wearing the love notions Rhapsody blouse and the Lutterloh dress.

First up is the Rhapsody Blouse, I have given it a good iron, basically I ran it under  the tap and then ironed it wet, the fabric is a nightmare to get the creases out.

I difinitely should have made the next size up, you can see in the slightly blurry photo underneath this that the shoulder seam is quite away from my shoulder. This will be fixed by going up a size.

The rest of the fit doesn’t look too bad but I’m wondering if the whole garment might benefit from the extra fabric.

I’m still not keen on the sleeves, the next one I try will probably be the 3/4 sleeve with flared cuff.

Second, the Lutterloh Dress

It does appear to have a slight issue with sliding back, I know that there is a way to fix this, I just have to remember where I saw it.

The gathers at the bust line need to be more even and also look like they should be gathered in a slightly different place, as I said in the previous post the front is cut far too low. I also think that the top line of the skirt piece needs a bit of smoothing out as well.

I think that the drag lines are caused by the dress sliding backwards but maybe it could do with a small sway back adjustment.

The dress doesn’t look too bad in this side view, it does highlight the gathers need to be moved

The arrow is pointing at where the point where I didn’t transition the top into the skirt portion correctly, which means it doesn’t drape properly.

hopefully more soon….
