Zee Moulage ez constructed...

Boy... mine sure looks bad. But thanks to Ada on the PR message board, I think I can make it work. Here's what it looks like now...
ACK! I have no waist! I actually do have a little bit of waistline... it just doesn't show here. My bust points are way too low (my boobs are not that close to my waistline yet), and I think the armholes are a little too tight or something. Maybe it's the shoulders...



Now in the back, I need to adjust something... I think it's the slight sway back adjustment. I may have to add a little bit more space across the back.

Here's what I plan to try (thanks Ada!). Raise the bust points up by 1 1/2", straighten out the waist/hip side seam, take a tiny pinch at the small of the back for the sway back adjustment, shorten the shoulder length by 1/2", and maybe lower the shoulder point a little bit.

I need to remember that it's supposed to look like a sausage casing. I keep thinking it's too tight! Too tight! If you have any suggestions, please comment... I'd like to get this thing right.

Your moulage doesn't look as bad as you think. I think you're right about adding a little bit to the back at the bust level. See if that helps remove the diagonal drag lines between the waist and butt. Also, I can see that the shoulders are way too wide for you. They should end at the shoulder point, which is the dent at the top of the shoulder when you raise your arm. You're making good progress!
