Thank you! When I remake the dress with the needed alterations I will update!

The shape is very good on you, I think the bust is very tricky to fit once it is all sewn up, maybe you could try a muslin of just the bodice before the next version, I think taking some length out between the shoulder and the bust would be a good start.

This is really nice. You are on the right track with the dart, you just need to take it out of the pattern piece before you cut. There is a bit of extra length between your shoulder and your bust(at the armhole edge). You could just tweak out the amount needed there. I wish I could wear shirtwaist dresses like this. This pattern looks so nice on you.

I just finished a version of this dress, haven't had time to post it to PR yet. The upper bodice takes a LOT of pattern tweaking to get it right. I made at least two muslins before I was happy with it.
