I had such high hopes for v8280

I don't hate it, I think that I can make it work.

I am just disapointed, I had really high hopes for this pattern.

The pattern photograph of the view I am working on is the one on the right, and 26 rave reviews on

Pattern Review can't be wrong, can they?

That centerfront dart helps, and making the shoulders more square helped too. I just can't figure out how to fix those shoulders! Once I get that worked out I will see how the sleeves look.
Do you think maybe lowering the arm hole will help?
It looks like the back neck fits OK, maybe I just need to make the 'flanges' wider by ....
I don't know, I am tired of thinking about it.
Any suggestions?

  1. Are you adding the sleeves or are you doing the sleeveless version? I always have such a hard time visualizing finished garments (the old saying "Fools & children should never seen things half finished" is like a mantra to me), but I bet once the lining is in it, you'll see a whole new dress. Also, adding a belt would make a world of difference. I think the front dart helps the fit too. I hope this helps!!!
