I've had enough of darts, so I thought, why not just get rid of them? It's not perfect but it will do. I'm attempting to embrace the not-skin-tight vibe of this dress, but it's counter-intuitive. I'm going to try and match up the skirt panels too, this is just one I'd made earlier. (It'll be nicer when I do it properly with pressing and everything.)

How did I do it? I pivoted the bust dart down to meet the waist dart, then I cut them out and turned the remaining pieces into new pattern pieces. Good details on the technique here and here.

Next step; real fabric, and underlining. Woohoo! *is exhausted*
