This week has been an interesting one. In between trying to start two new journal articles due very soon, and finishing up two others (bring on maternity leave!), I tried a few new techniques to get the Negroni muslin done for Michael. Michael heads off to California (lucky him) for work in a fortnight, so I needed to get moving to be able to have a nicely fitted shirt before he leaves.
So, without further ado, here he is, modelling the muslin!
He looks so sleepy! It was pretty late at night, so I'm grateful he put it on and smiled for the camera!
So, I think it looks pretty good from the front. Michael likes a slim fit, and we've gotten that. The shoulder width seems to be good from the front too.
But - look at the back. Bleh. Do you think this is due to the shirt being too long? I haven't hemmed it, and it is much longer than his RTW shirts. The sleeves also look a little funny - Michael did say he feels the shirt is a smidgeon too tight under the arms - if I deepened the underarm, would that help? Does the shoulder width still look good?
Here he is with his arms in the air:
I'd love your thoughts on fit -- what alterations do you think I'll need to make?
Now I'm back to making some breastfeeding-friendly clothes - a button down slouchy blouse.
