Question: How do you lower the bust point on a princess seam?

How do you adjust a princess seam?

It’s super easy to fix in a princess seam: If the top is too tight across the bust, rip the princess seams at the bust point, and insert (pin) a scrap of fabric underneath. Then draw the new seam line on the fabric scrap and measure how much you need to add to either side of the seam line.

How do I make my bust darts less pointy?

When you reach the dart tip (the pin), sew off the edge of the fabric. The short stitches won’t unravel and replace the need to backtack or tie the ends together. The trick of sewing along the fold of the fabric for a few stitches helps to get a nice smooth finish and avoids a pointy Madonna vibe to your darts.
