I’m a new subscriber and this is the first dress I’ve tried to make and I’m having trouble. My issue is not not the sewing or the directions, it is the pattern fit. I’ve made 3 different muslins of this patterns bodice to play with size variations and all of them have the arm opening lower than my bust line. There is about 2 inches from the bottom of the arm opening to the waistband. This makes it seem that raising/lowering your arms would be awkward. In the photo, the line drawing of the back of the dress shows that they are supposed to be somewhat ‘floppy’ but the photo looks like it has more ‘normal’ sleeves. Has anyone made this dress and are the arm holes really supposed to be that baggy? I would rather have armhole smaller and about 4" from the bottom of the arm hole to make this fit more flattering. That adjustment would require re-drawing the arm hold and the sleeve.
