I do however need to take in the bodices on both dresses. With Parfait, I had to lengthen the bust (a FBA was too much) and take in around the high bust and shoulder areas. With Lily, I will likely have to take in the bust or side seams a little, take in dart shapes at the high bust on most of the seams and lengthen the straps. To me, that's very little adjustment on a pattern. I don't have to make any crazy darts at the waist or mess with the side seam shaping. It's wonderful.
Make Do and Cut It Out
As you can see in the upper right photo, I just couldn't get the pocket to fit on the remaining fabric. So... take a big gasp of shock now ... I cut the top of the pocket on the straight of grain and the bottom of the pocket on the cross grain. There is a risk that the fabric will stretch funny in the pocket, but I think I'm pretty safe having it be at the bottom and only on the back half (closest to my body) of the pocket pieces. If it's too wonky, I can always cut it out of lining fabric, but I prefer a sturdier pocket.
All in all, I'm thrilled with the results of the cut out.
