I’m attempting to make my own bodice sloper using http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/constructing-the-basic-bodice-block. I thought I was following the instructions perfectly, but then when I got to the armscye and realized it was way too narrow for an arm to fit through! Does anyone have any suggestions for where I might have gone wrong or how to salvage and adapt what I have done so far? If I split the front and back halves apart at the armscye, how would I then modify the halves to correct the problem?
I’d be grateful for any suggestions! :)
