Darts that wont lie flat at the point
Just discovered this gathering and found many of the discussions interesting and relevant.
My current dilemma…. I am making a bias cut top (New Look 6438). I have chosen a remnant piece of crepe backed satin (suggested fabric) to try this out before using the intended fabric.
I have a broad back, high round back and forward facing narrow shoulders. I have made the necessary adjustments and need quite a wide dart in the back shoulders to take up the gap in the back armhole and provide enough width over the shoulder blades whilst keeping the shoulder length short.
The tissue dart sits nicely but the fabric dart finishes with a pucker at the pointed end.
Can anyone suggest the reason and a solution?
Is it the type of fabric?
Is it because the fabric is on the bias?
Would it be better with princess seams?
