Do I use the same ease for a blouson dress as I use for a more fitted dress or do I lower the ease?

Thanks

Pat wrote to support with this question and the answer is ...I don't know.

Should it fit in the bust like the fit garment or do you want it looser in the bust?

How does the fit garment fit in the bust with default ease?

What is your personal default ease?

What fabric are you using? A soft fabric can usually handle more ease than a stiffer fabric.

What do I personally do? Test garment. Don't need to do details, but sew the basic torso of the garment.

I do quick test garments all the time, especially when doing a new style. Does not take long, but saves time doing a garment that does not fit as desired.

I like this response Karen although I know that it can be a bit frustrating.

Each garment we create in PMB is uniquely our own....fit, style, fabrics. After thousands of garments, I can say that I totally agree with Karen's last sentence...do a quick test garment with the same fabrics to be sure all is as you want/expect.

I have had many surprise designs as a result of not doing that extra step...some were actually quite lovely although nothing like my original plan. Others became a learning experience but only rarely a completely unwearable disaster...I won't mention the vests made for 25 adult guys in a play that would nicely fit 10 year olds...totally my error, PMB did exactly what I told it to do!!

I love this software more today than when I first discovered it 15 years ago. It is brilliant but I still must use my own skills and judgement to get what I really want.

My advice, take your time and enjoy each step of the process.

As a note, the blouson has the dart rotated to the hem. If you are full busted you may want to keep the side bust dart and add flare.
