#1: The zipper in the back is gapping at the neck. I've already partially unbasted it and rebasted it to curve it in more-- currently at 1" in rather than 5/8". Is this something I should be worried about, or will reshaping the neckline throw it off further, or will putting the facings in (and therefore removing some of that raw edge) solve the problem?
#2: The bust darts. I've never quite been able to get this double-dart bodice thing down--it seems like I always get that weird fabric bubble between the two. This is no exception. I tried tapering the side dart to get less of a point, but I'm not sure if that made it better or worse. I did also have to take the vertical darts in a bit more because it was hanging way too loosely around my waist. Which I tapered it out from the seam, further down than the point. You can see that I'm also getting some weird wrinkles in the front from the picture, too, though I think it may hang a bit better on me than on the dummy.
(And another shot of the darts on the other side.)
#3: The back. This is where I'm getting the weirdest wrinkles. Again, I had to take the darts in some more, but I actually ended up letting those out further again than what I'd originally taken in, and then taking in a little bit on the side seams. That helped a bit, but I still don't think it should have all of those wrinkles in there.
So please, please, any advice you can offer me would be so welcome--the wedding is 3 weeks from Saturday, and with balancing 3 jobs right now, this pattern is pretty much my last shot at getting a dress sewn up in time! If the fabric is a factor, I'm using silk charmeuse, so it would be drapier than the muslin. And I really don't know what on earth I'm going to do with it--not to mention the silk velvet I bought to make a matching wrap--if I don't use it for this wedding. (Not to mention I really would prefer to not have to shop for a dress when I've got gorgeous fabric to play with!)
