What beautiful details, I especially like the bubblegum for breakfast detail. Too cute. I can't help you with the dart issue, but I often sew mine up to the nipple.

inStitches, the skirt is a 'morfed' version of Vogue 8003, part of the "One pattern multiple looks" contest. And thanks to all of you for the nice comments!

I can honestly say that from Florida (3000 miles from CA) I can't see anything wrong with the darts; all I see is great graceful fit and fabulous fabric design. But I've had to do some serious futzing around with the darts and armhole and chest width to make some HP patterns work for me and my DD, so I know what you're talking about. However, I think the HP designs are worth the time and trouble and your dress is an example of why.

Well, I hadn't intended to look at the entries for this contest until they were all in, but, this latest caught my eye and I was partway through before realizing this was a OPML entry. Fabulous details! Wonderful pattern interpretations, this is a real winner in my eyes.
