One of the common problems with sleeveless dresses is a gaping armhole. This technique will show you how to put that extra fabric into the bust dart. (Also works for neckline gaping as well!)

Technique Materials

A copy of your pattern, pencil, french curve, extra tracing paper, scissors, tape, a muslin of your pattern

    Many thanks for posting this. I had exactly this issue after making my first Colette Sorbetto top. I fixed it on the fly with a couple of bust darts, but needed to know how to adjust my pattern for the next time. Looking at your pics, you could be my body double! We’re just the same shape.
