THank you Hendrick - but no- soory for my english - it is the front bust dart! Nowadays with so many big busted ladies it is important for me to get it right in the beginning and not to alter the pattern later so much. This saves a lot of time. So  before I buy I would like to know about it.

I fear these problems of ladies' wear. Over the summer, to get back into sewing, I made a few pieces for my (female) neighbour, a summer dress, waistcoat and linen trousers.

Luckily she has a rather proportionate figure, but a fairly large bust in comparison to waist*. It gave me no end of bother. Getting the waistcoat opening to sit correctly was a headache. I bow down to those who cut and sew for women.


*Since she started her new job and cycles a lot it went gone down a couple of centimetres...after the initial measures, worse luck!
