This is my first posting to any kind of forum. I have many years’ experience sewing for myself, but I am largely self-taught and therefore sometimes get stuck on the basics.
I have a very simple blouse pattern (like a T-shirt, jewel neck, single button at the back) which includes 1/4″ shoulder pads. I want to make the blouse without the pads. I can change the angle of the shoulder seam easily enough, but how do I redraw the sleeve cap so it then fits together? I have made it without the pads and without altering the pattern, but the sleeves just don’t hang right.
I checked several books, but no one addresses removing shoulder pads from the pattern. I couldn’t conceptualize inverting the directions for adding shoulder pads.
Thanks, everyone, for your help.
