Thank you for your suggestions. Now I must ask a very naive question: exactly what is the armscye? I could not find this word in my sewing books or even in my dictionary! I’m assuming it’s the armhole… where the sleeve is set in? Probably sounds obvious but I wanted to make sure.
I never knew a higher armhole would help. I’m going to make some adjustments today–I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks for all the input!
