What materials did you use? I cut a smaller size to take into consideration the design ease, as per Pam's suggestion. This is Vogue 8804 while waiting for my class pattern

Wondering whether to make a bigger horizontal dart across the back?

Hi, Cutting out a smaller size was key to getting a better fit from this pattern! I agree that taking a bigger horizontal tuck from the back will help to keep the back from sagging above the vertical darts and smooth out the back. Don't rule out the possibility of a second horizontal dart if one large one is too much. Remember, this will be a test to see what will work best for your body. Can't wait to see the next pictures! Thanks, Pam
