when i first heard about swayback alterations it sounded like the hunchback of notre dame… but i read more and found it's more common. the lower back curves inward more prominently. but now i'm also thinking my left shoulder might be slightly higher than my right. that would cause the issue i'm seeing with the waistband looking slightly uneven. i was tested for scoliosis when i was younger, and it came back negative. (they tested all of the kids in middle school) but now i sit in front of a computer all day at work with one hand on a mouse and it's wreaking havoc on my upper back. i've started getting massages. i've tried yoga. i've tried stretching breaks. it helps, but it's not a solution.
anyway, focusing on the positive… i'm pleased with the changes to the dress. before i was thinking "it's not that bad." i really just didn't want to do it over. but doing it over is helping me become more confident in my sewing skills. and now that i compare the "before" and "after" - it's a lot better. thank you for all the feedback on the last post. and thanks for the push ;)
