I posted this on the thread I started on the Petite forum but I think it will get more visibility here:

Quote:
Ok, I worked on the dress all day yesterday. Despite the crazy heat. But I have to be done with this dress by the 7th of Aug.

I'm making View B, straight neckline and straight skirt. In Charcoal 6.5oz denim. Yes, I love subversion! (and tweaking my nose at Protocol. They said "dark clothing", after all!)

Initially, I traced and cut a size 12 but it's too big. So I took it in at the side seams an extra 1cm (approx 3/8in) and it fits better. TIGHTER but better. This isn't an Eating Dress.

I also basted the whole dress together (except the sleeves) in the fashion fabric to test out the flange. And it's still weird. I also took in the bodice neckline down to a 6 at the upper armscye corner.

Since I was alone, I used Sarai @ Colette Patterns trick of using safety pins to attach the flanges to the side neckline.

I just want confirmation that the first 5cm or so of the bodice lower armscye must match the first corresponding 5cm of the flange lower armscye.

I might have marked the pattern pieces wrong because it seems like the double notches on the flange place it lower than the side seam+lower armscye corner of the bodice ie the flange and bodice don't overlap perfectly there.

Hum a bit hard to explain without images but I'm talking about my underarm area, on the bodice.

Anyone?


So how should this flange be positioned/lay?
