If you ever think about taking an ill fitting francaise and try to make it work, don’t. You are much better off starting completely over and you’ll most likely like the result better. I FINALLY finished my redo. I’m happy enough with it as a redo but as a completed garment… not so much. Last night I was a hair close to tossing the entire thing.
But it IS done. And it’s wearable. Now I can go work on something fun.
