Just a little update on my progress in Francine, version 2.0.
I'm still optimistic that re-writing the pattern will solve my strange-body-shape problems, but I've had to re-re-write it in a few places when it became obvious that my revisions weren't going to work out. Since I am the great shoulder-less woman, I had doubled the armhole decreases to narrow the shirt in the chest and up to the straps. (The whole thing was too big in the chest in the beginning -- from armpit to armpit, I am very narrow.) Doubling the decreases turned out to be a little too aggressive, I've frogged down to the start of the armhole and am now alternating the decreases between 1X and 2X.
If the re-write (or the re-re-write, I should say), turns out to have been successful, there should be pictures in the next few days!
