To cowl or not to cowl?
That is the question. I’ve made M6604 twice now. The first time I ended up with bewbsmiles…
As someone else said, “It is too tight but with too much excess fabric at the same time”. (Sorry don’t know who said it but from now on I will try to remember to save these posts to refer to later.)
But I did think it was worth another try. So then I made version two.
Unfortunately I made this a while ago and now can’t remember exactly what alterations I made. I think I cheated by just adding to the centre front thinking that I could then take in the extra in the neckline tucks.
While this has largely solved the bewbsmile issue, there is now too much fabric around the shoulders.
But given the fit issues I’ve already encountered I’m not even sure what size to start with. The first version started at 20 then down to 18. The second is an altered 18. I also cannot get my head around trying to do any sort of FBA on a cowl.
So any ideas? Have you made M6604? How did you go? Any and all thoughts or suggestions are very welcome.
