I have been lurking for a while and reading the posts but cant find an answer to my quandry……….so I am hoping someone will help me sort this out.
I need to make work shirts that are fitted at the front and loose at the back so I am trying am armhole princess seam version. I plan on making a yoke and pleated back.
But I have a very high small bust ( at least according to the pattern) I need to raise the bust 2″. Following the FFRP guidlines I have boxed it an moved it up the 2″. Now the bust line is higher than the seam line! I dont think this can work! or at least I dont know how to make it work! I dont know where to true it so my seams match……….
To make a plain front blouse I usually just fold the extra length out of the top section above the armhole and then lower the armhole……….
any advice would be apprectiated…………
