This one came out nearly perfect! Here are the changes I'm going to make to the next one: 1) lower the neck a bit in the front. 2) widen the armhole at the front and back near the underarm. 3) Remove curvature of front side seam by adding 5mm at the bust linethis should straighten the side seam and eliminate the fabric shortage I'm experiencing when pinning at the back. 4) Expand back shaping at center back between waist and low hip by ~8mm to remove excess fabric. I think that's it!!

Beautiful. I like how fitted it is. Make those minor changes your mentioned and then I think you will be there. Nice work!

I've added moulage #4. It actually didn't come out quite as nice as #3, but it should work fine as a final, I think. Suzy, my primary concern is those tucks you can see at the back armhole, going up towards my shoulders. There is one in each side, despite the fact that I actually widened the armhole at the base. How much of a problem is this, and do you have any ideas how to fix it?

This #4 moulage is beautiful. Yes, I see those wrinkles. Try taking the end of shoulder down 1/8" in the back shoulder only. Come down 1/8 at the end of shoulder and blend to zero at the high neck point. Do that first on this muslin mock up. If that does not fix it, try to come in 1/8 at the cross back. Between those two changes it should be fixed.
