I thought some slight tweaking would do it, but in fitting my blazer, I’ve had to make a bunch of small alterations. Taking out seams and slip-stitching them into place, adding darts… there are little orange stitches all over the place!  But I think I’m just about finished up so that I can take her to the machine are sew them up.  

I also have to enlarge the ‘armseye’ (new vocab! arm hole. I can see why there is a different name for it) by trimming away at the lower edge so it’s not so high in the armpit. And then maybe I can get to setting the sleeves! That too will need some finagling since I’m creating a slim fit three-quarter sleeve, as opposed to the pouffy gathered sleeve in the pattern.  A couple steps backward, a couple steps forward…. but at least it’s moving!
