PMB blouse is a wadder

Ok, the PMB blouse is junk, trash, garbage! The last blouse I made with the old measurements was a princess seam blouse for the build a better blouse class and it still fits OK, but this new blouse I cut out and had looking so nice, until I tried it on....the darts hit me about 2 inches BELOW the apex! Darn it. So it is garbage.
I took the cashmere/silk fabric to the dry cleaner for shrinkage and have ordered the lining fabric.
I made the muslin on Sunday and it fit PERFECT,
yes PERFECT right from the pattern with NO adjustments at all...I am amazed and can't wait to get started on the fashion fabric. Yeah, Bruda World of Fashion magazine!!!

Bummer! I hope the silk/cashmere treats you better. One thing I learned from Marta Alto in the Palmer/Pletsch class last month is that very soft fabrics like silk charmuse is that darts will sort of sag low. So pin fit the fabric before you sew in the darts to get it just right.
Keep sewing, you inspire me. I am up to my neck in wedding sewing (tutus for flower girls and vests for the groom's nephews).
