Just talked to dean about some issues heres what he said - so i dont forget!

1. attatch the lining at side seams. Dont have a waist seam in the lining this will reduce bulkiness at stomach area.

2. dont stretch the fabric when attatching elastic

3. to try putting bagginess into the top, simply add cm at waist seam, making it more of a box shape and then gather slightly and sew into waist seam.

4. test the fabric manipulation see how much stretch is lost per 10cm for example and try to work out how much larger i need to make the pattern. use a stretch stitch such as a fine zig zig.

I need to get working on the bodice in Gillians next class!
