    I want to start by saying how I love your patterns! The breezy blouse is my second garment, after sewing 3 Everyday skirts!

    So I found the bust dart to be a little high, and I would like to lower it for my next blouse. My question is should I adjust the entire dart parallel downwards, or pivot the tip only? I hope my question is clear. I tried to Google for answers but found conflicting solutions.

    There’s a tutorial on the site! https://oliverands.com/community/blog/2018/08/how-to-raise-or-lower-a-dart.html

    I followed this when making a classic shirt, and it went smoothly. I went with the second method, which is shifting the whole dart down, but the tutorial covers both methods.

    Thank you, seems like both methods are valid. I guess I don’t know how to decide. How should a dart rightfully look? If I do the first, then my dart will be more horizontal.

    Update that I did the first method. Looks fine!
