I will get fit right on a blouse. It's got to happen!! But, it won't happen today. I'm done sewing until I get back from vacation - unless I get everything done today that I need to and get a moment of inspiration later this evening. I always have the same problem with blouses. Right now, you can see that there are terrible draglines from the bust to the waist. Also, there is too much fabric above the waist in the back. I have already raised the waist 1" in the back and raised the darts as well. The FBA seems too big because there is excess fabric at the bust point and the darts seem to stick out at the sides, but the drag lines would suggest that there is not enough fabric at the bust. I've tried raising the darts, and now they seem too high, but when they were lower, they stuck out at the sides. this shouldn't be so difficult.
AS you can see here, there is too much fabric above the dart on the blouse fabric. Also, now the dart looks too high. The dart point was about 1" shorter in, but I lengthened it because it was kind of pointing out to the side.
