Another problem.

I like to solve problems, and my motto this year is “Makeit Work” by Tim Gunn of Project Runway fame.
I think I’ve managed to get the front of my blouses looking better by doing an FBA  but now the sleeves are too tight and can’t move my arms.  I wasn’t sure what the problem is, since I can’t see my back. The digittal camera comes in handy but I don’t always like what I see. Broad back? Broad waist–yes, Round shoulders?   all of the above. Talk about multiple choice and a different way to tackle each problem.

The following are pictures  of the offending problems.

I am fairly happy with the front, I just have it pinned together, I haven’t put the ring  on, to tie the belt properly.

It is quite a gap in the back of the armseye.

 I left out the back darts but maybe I should do something else in the way of an alteration.

With a more relaxed arm, you can still see the gap in the back.
The store had 3 bolts of this fabric, so it will be possible to buy more.  One thing not visible in the photos, When I tried the blouse on without sleeves I noticed the armseye was ill fitting. There seemed to be too much fabric at about the same level in the front.
No wonder I knit socks to relax!!!
