shanniloves Skirt done. Vito says, "Ok how about popcorn and a movie?" #colettepatterns #sewing #pugsnotdrugs 1w
  •   tanitisis He is kinda the same shape as the skirt. :) 1w
  •   ozzycow Hahaha the dog is hilarious! 1w
  •   heathergrows Oh my goodness Vito!!! I can't believe he can balance like that! Oh and great skirt too. LOL 1w
  •   shanniloves @tanitisis and same color too! 1w
  •   foursquarewalls So you tell him to pose or does he always just chill like that? 1w
  •   foursquarewalls Do* you... 1w
  •   naomimolly Oh Vito! 1w
  •   shanniloves @foursquarewalls both. he started doing it on his own. If he's being ignored he does it. Sometimes I'll walk into a room and he's by himself sitting like that on the couch. It's funny cuz I've seen him posing to our cats when they are ignoring him. I have taught him to do it on command too. 7d

shanniloves Working on my hawthorn muslin and the back looks a little big around the arms. How should I fix? Deepen the existing darts? A narrow back adjustment??? Ack help! #sewing #sewcialists 3w
  •   kathborup Good question. I don't know much about fitting but I wish I did! I would probably make the darts bigger but I guess that removes excess fabric in the wrong area...I'd love to see what the other ladies think! 3w
  •   nycbookwriter I'd do a horizontal dart at the arms, transfer those marks to the pattern, fold piece with that excess in, and then cut piece without that excess. 3w
  •   jacquiesews tempted to try taking the darts right through which would take in some excess, then adjusting the armholes? I run small through the back area too, so interested to see other's input... 3w
  •   stefflincecum Ditto nycbookwriter and this may sound odd but it looks like the whole back can be taken up at the shoulder seams a bit. Just my 2 cents. 3w
  •   foursquarewalls are you adding sleeves? If so, you may need some of that room for movement. If not, I agree with @stefflincecum -- looks like it can all be raised up at the shoulder seams first to see how that helps..? 3w
