I am sewing for the first time and wanted to start with a dress that would work as a basic bodice later on. But the problem I am facing is that the Shoulder Seam is sloping backwards. Also I feel that the armhole is perhaps not really sitting at the edge of the shoulder but is a little bit higher up on the shoulder line (how do you find the exact location it’s supposed to sit?)
So could someone please explain how to adjust the the Shoulder Seam.
I tried the obvious thing of decreasing the armhole edge of the front shoulder by the required amount and increasing the armhole edge of the back shoulder by the same. But the shoulder is still sitting the same with the seam slanting to the back.
Also what other adjustments would i have to make with this small adjustments. From what i gathered in my trial was that i would have to lower the waistline because it seems to have risen. Would I have to lower the front armhole side seam edge as well (and subsequently raise the back armhole seam edge)?
Oh and if i lower/raise the front/back shoulder neck edge should i then lower/raise the front/back necklines as well?
Did you manage to solve this problem? I am getting the same error message.
OK. Thanks for that. I wouldn’t want to pay for online download to find it had the same…
Sadly, Burda instructions range from the brief to the sketchy. There are rarely picture…
By the way – it is a duffle coat.
Hi. Are there any patterns that go beyond 46? I can’t find anything that corresponds to…
