Here I am again. Still pondering the mystery that is the shift dress.  I will keep hashing my problems out here on the blog til I get some solutions! Am I the only one that has problems with darts? Seems like I can never get them even. Ever. And I have a heck of a time lining up the darts when attaching the skirt front and back to the bodice front and back. ARGH. Part of the problem is that I’m a different size in the bodice than I am in the skirt. Something is not transferring right.  I think the next pattern I’m going to look at will have princess seams. I wonder if that will work better. Hmm. Any ideas for how to consistently make sure your darts and seams line up when you are 2 different sizes?
