Please could I have some fitting advice? I’m attempting to make a waistcoat for my husband. I’m at the pattern fitting stage and getting a bit frustrated. I’ve pinned the paper pattern and put it on hubby. The front is a perfect fit, the shoulder and side seams are where they should be and the centre back is spot on, but there is a huge gap from the mid armhole to just before the shoulder seam. I have consulted a number of books which suggest that he has a round back/shoulder area and I would say that he does. I’ve pinned a shoulder dart as per instructions but this just seems to put the shoulder, neck and centre back out of place. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. What I want to do is just pin out the excess as there aren’t sleeves but not sure if that would help. I’d be so grateful for any help xx
