I need some help getting the fit right on a summer top I'm working on.
It's New Look #6483, View B, (sleeveless, round neck) except that I've
lowered the neckline to about 3" below the base of the throat. I've
also eliminated the back opening.
made one about a year ago in slightly stretchy fabric and thought I was happy with it, even though it's not designed for stretch. Now I'm trying to make in in non-stretch shirting, and just can't seem to get it right. I made several test samples and finally got the right size. I've lenghtened and lowered the bust darts a bit, and now it's almost right. Trouble is, I still have a diagonal wrinkle from just under the bust down to the waist on both sides. I think it's a dart issue, but what do I do about it?
Does anyone know of a website that shows this type of problem and its
solution? I've tried googling, but came up with so many hits that had
nothing to do with sewing or altering patterns. Thanks for any help you
