Q&A with cblong03

Pam Howard asked:
Hello! Great top, and very nice fabric and print. Since you like more fitted tops, you may try to find a pattern with a bust dart as well as the others in fron and back, or one with princess seams (more opportunities for fit where you need it) Please don't give up, you don't have far to go to get the fit you desire :-)) So glad you enjoyed the class, and I hope to see your next shirt with the new design lines or added darts :-))

Thank you! I've now posted some new pics. Now that I can see the back, I'm wondering if I should take out the back darts. I like your idea about an added bust dart. I posted my 1st attempt at this shirt under "40 Techniques Every Sewer Should Know," before I took your class, but that one I made 2 sizes too big, based on the measurements I took a while back. That shirt is now in pieces and recut to the smaller size. Should I add a bust dart to it and leave out the back darts for a better fit? I've also been looking for a pattern with princess seams, since I love that look.
