What materials did you use? Pattern Paper

What are you most proud of? Gaping at the neckline is really quite easy to fix. You can use this technique on your patterns and get a very nice custom fit.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep in mind when cutting to the bust point that you leave a little hinge of paper to swing on.

Thanks for posting this. I had put aside a blouse-in-progress with this very problem, but will now return to it using your solution.

This is a great tip thanks! I have a full bust but smaller shoulders and always have extra material in this area, especially in the back.
