It's starting to look like something

I have sewed up the shoulder seams and side seams so I can finally start checking for fit. It looks pretty good so far!

Using "Stich and Bitch" for seaming guidance, I fake grafted the shoulder seams (page 77) and used the mattress stick to bring the sides together (page 74). Be careful to check the side seams as you go because one could be longer than the other. The advice the book offers is to take one running bar on the short side and two on the long side to catch up. But you won't have to do it for the length of the seam so keep checking as you go.
