I’m working on pattern #135 for the blouse with a bow. The pattern includes a notch at the shoulder of the sleeve for a dart, but when I sew it like I would a bust dart, it looks crazy and extends well beyond my shoulder point. Should I be sewing it differently? Is it more of a pleat/tuck than a dart?
Also, can someone explain to me how I’m supposed to sew the contrast bands onto the blouse in plain english? The pattern says to pin the bias strip to the neck/arm hole with “wrong side facing right side” and then “edge stitch in place”. Does that just mean edge stitch the finished contrast band on top of the right side of the shirt? So two parallel seams across the top and bottom edges of the contrast band?
