My Finished Bodice!

I can't believe it--I finally finished my Mirepoix Bodice! I just finished the neckline maybe half an hour ago. I still need to block it, but it's done! I tried it on and it fits--the sleeves seem a bit tight, but I'll try to block those a little larger or something, though even if I can't it just makes it more fitted I suppose.

Just trying it on, I'm really glad I added the extra 1" to the bodice part before I began the steeks--I don't think it would've covered my chest fully otherwise.

Anyway, below is a picture of the unblocked sweater. I'll take a shot of me wearing it after I block it. :)

yipee! go ahead, block the hell out of the sleeves if you have to! I make an "arm" out of foam-core and dry them on that...if I'm organized.

Looks great!! That is a good point on making sure the bodice section fits before steeking. I will do the same when I get to that point!
