That I had to adjust the shoulders that fell way down on my arms. I managed to do it using my mannequin and with no instructions, just trial and error. Surprisingly, I got it right the first time around. I had never attempted anything like that before. I was quite surprised that it turned out so well. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try on the item as you progress through the project. Do not wait until the end to find out there was an adjustment that would have worked better before completion.
