Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a fitted French dart dress, like BS109 09/2012, but a sheath dress?
I know ‘Dorothy Moore’s Pattern Drafting and Dressmaking’ has instructions for drafting such a dress, but I can’t seam to make the pattern reliably in miniature, so I wonder if only shift dresses with curved darts can be made with long French Darts?
Any photos you can direct me to would help.
— Thank you. It’s nice to have someone confirm one’s opinion. : )
