True up your shoulder line by taking a ruler and lining up one edge with where the pattern meets the neck, and the other with where you shifted your "L" peice. Draw a straight line. This should now reflect your actual shoulder slope! (Remember to repeat all steps on the other side if needed)
Since garments such as shirts, jackets, dresses and vests hang from the shoulders, it is a crucial place to acquire a nice fit. Hope you have fun saying goodbye to drag and pull lines and enjoy some nicely fitted garments!
(remember, for a perfect fit you will more than likely have to alter your darts in your pattern as well, but when making fitting alterations you always start from the top i.e. the shoulders)
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
