Help! I'm just returning to garment sewing after years of home dec. I made a muslin of a blouse and everything is fine EXCEPT I need to do an FBA

Sorry, I hit enter too soon! I need to do an FBA and also lower the dart about 3 inches. I've found great tutorials on both on this site, but do I need to know anything special to do both on the same pattern?

Do the FBA first. It may lower the bust dart some. Probably not 3 inches, but....

Do you have a copy of Fit for Real People? It's a must.
