Du Barry 5766 - Muslin #2 and 2.5
I was having to shorten the dart so much that it quickly became a "short triangle" and I couldn't get rid of the "POOF" at the point. Before I allowed myself to get too frustrated, I began pinching out fabric on the left front to come up with a princess seam. After marking my new "pinned" lines, I took that left front apart and recut a modified pattern (photo at my blog). I think it will work so much better for me. I still have to sew in the sleeves and should be able to determine if I need to remove some ease from the sleeve to omit puckers at the shoulder.
There are a few more details at my blog about today's adventures.
