For ages I've been wondering why tops always ride up on me even when I buy the right size. Then after reading a lot of stuff on fit and wearing a particularly troublesome shirt that with ride up with barely breathing. I had lightblub moment. the dart was wrong. So for the first time I moved a dart.
*happy dance*

Congratulations! What I love about sewing is that everytime I sew a garment, I learn something new. I bet that you can't wait to try it again!!
