Yes, I finished Jack’s sweater. But no, I did not finish my dress. Social engagements got into the way. And there’s good and bad news. First the bad news: Jack has a really bad cold and is absolutely miserable today, so we cancelled the photo session. The good news is that means I can finish my dress for next weekend’s photo appointment. Yeah!
Jack’s sweater fits just ok. Even though I added 1.5 inches to the length, it’s still a little short. And it’s a little wide in the shoulders. But I am so over knitting this sweater that it will have to do. I will show you a picture of him in it later. The poor little guy is not up to any glamour shots today.
I am planning to fix the bust problem by releasing the fisheye dart and lowering it. If that works, then I will just finish the hem, vent and hand sew the lining to the zipper tape. If not, then I will undo the side seams and lower the bust dart, but I think the fisheye dart alteration will do the trick.
Thank you for all your suggestions. I did try all my different bras with the dress, even my pushy-uppiest bra and nothing did the trick. Not sure why the fit on this dress is so different from my other dresses. Oh well…
I hope you all get a chance to sew or knit today.
