We were really unsure of the sleeve in the toile fitting, so I altered it and cut it in callico before I cut it in the fabric. It still wasn’t working so I need to revise the sleeve. The collars shape needs to be changed slightly too. I had someone take notes for me in the fitting so I can go back and make all of the alterations. The shape of the back never seems to work quite right. The box pleat has been an incredible challenge. It never wants to sit quite right. I need to alter the shoulders just slightly. The hem etc will come later.
