Vogue 7903 blouse, fitting issues
I am not completely happy with the back of the blouse. I have pinned out a horizontal dart in a "sway back" adjustment. I do not entirely approve of this term, as in my case the problem is not a sway back, but a horizontally protuding backside of generous dimensions, I guess "sway back" sounds better than "big booty"! Whilst I have no wish for it to head south, patterns seem to assume that well south of the current location is where all this part of me should be. I may add a centre back seam, or possibly an "action back" pleat to the next blouse and see how this improves the situation. I am definitely getting fussy. All my RTW blouses (I have one left)catch in the small of my back like this.
