I did Mccalls 5138My Webpage, for the fitted blouse contest did not make the time slot, but I did finally finish it, but as you can see lots of problem, but I was thinking of making it with PS, this is how I was going to do it, close the dart and cut into the armhole, through bust point ,down through the middle of the waist darts, does that sound good, plus of coarse add 5/8 SA

Acient3, you will get a better fit with PS because a bodice with PS easier to fit/adjust. In this case you have to make changes in your pattern and re-do front pieces... Unfortunately making PS will not help with front shoulder width - shoulders are too big on a blouse...
