    Shoulder pads come as "Sleeve Head style or as Raglan. Vogue used to have a pattern for making your own; actually are not hard to make, and then you can customise to YOUR FIGURE; which helps if you have a slight or moderate or severe difference between your left and your right body! Or cheat and be like me; having re-used garments for making new, for fabric for other projects, from Dress-Up Clothes for my grand daughter's Day Care and then JK/SK, and for wool to make Traduitional Hooked Rugs, I have a large Rubbermaid full of very assorted Shoulder Pads; from ones taken from bespoke men's jackets to thin ones from light weight blouses!

    You were pretty vague about the fit. Is there something else that you need help with?

    If you only need subtle shaping due to sloping shoulders with a 1/4"-3/8" pad you probably don't need to do any pattern adjustments.
