Hi, so I will do my best without visuals. It looks like you have too much length mostly in the armhole/shoulder area. To fix this try these instructions: On your sewn bodice front horizontally pin equal amounts all the way across front bodice until your shoulders seams sit on your shoulders. Have someone help you with the back. On your pattern (trace it off first!) cut a horizontal line from CF to armhole and overlap the pattern the total amount your pinned out of your sewn bodice. Do the same for the back bodice, try to keep the adjustment just to the back bodice not the side back bodice. I would fit it again, if it feels and looks better adjust the sleeve. In the same area of the armhole adjustment you will want to cut and shorten the cap of the sleeve. The curve of the sleeve cap will need to be smoothed out. Test the fit of the sleeve too! I hope this helps. Feel free to post a question, that way I can attach a visual aid. Nice work-Sara
