Most of my time was spent perfecting (attempting to) my knit T-shirt block from my muslin. This will be my basis of fit for
- Art of the 20's Dress challenge
- All future knit tops (T-shirt's, tanks, yoga tops, running gear, etc.)
- Swim suits
I thought it was always because I didn't have enough room for my hip and that it didn't nip in enough at the back waist (adjustment: swayback). Well, I made many adjustments and still ... it's there. Except now I get this freaky weird ripple and bump as if there's too much fabric. I throw up my hands. What do I do? Puzzle, puzzle.
I traced several tank tops onto my moulage. Interesting, interesting! I learned that they don't curve knit seams as much as I have been. In fact, they're pretty straight. They curve a little at the side seams, but mostly they are straight. That even goes for the knit RTW tanks I have that make use of a center back seam.
Even after this study, I feel stuck. Either it will fit too tight at the bum and ride up to hang out on the bum shelf, or it will be too big or oddly shaped, have weird wrinkles and STILL ride up and hang out on the bum shelf. Palm to forehead.
I've researched other books on pattern drafting. I've studied a few craftsy classes. I've asked other instructors & pattern drafters. I'm stuck.
Ok universe - I'd like an answer, please! For now, I'm carrying on - fitting problem unresolved.
