Subject: I have this fit issue regularly. I am not knocking this beautiful dress, If I could make one half as nice I would be over the moon! I understand this is an OTR and the dress is being modelled, but I have the fit issue across the front chest quite often. I am sure it's not cut too small, so why is it pulling? Any advice would be very much appreciated, this is the bain of my life at the moment, and cannot see where I am going wrong, to my eye it looks too big, but if so, it wouldn't pull..

It is much too small across the shoulders. You can see her shoulders pushing against the sleeve fabric. There's no solving a fit issue this drastic, she just needs a larger dress. The white fabric across the chest is too narrow for her width. Sometimes I can squeeze an extra half inch by letting the shoulder seam out as far as it will go, but they aren't usually meant to be let out, so that only works when it is just a little too tight. This dress is way too tight for that solution. (NT)sndmTuesday, April 09, 09:43:57am

I am not an expert but to me it looks like the sleeve has not anough "cup". Not sure if that is what you call it. It shold be wider and have a fold or just be gathred on the top seam. (NT)JTuesday, April 09, 10:06:37am

if you remove the sleeves and put the dress on the dancer, then you can see if the front is too tight...it may just need larger shoulder arch with pleats (NT)bgTuesday, April 09, 11:11:48am

The sleeves also look much too narrow all the way down, to me, and that probably doesn't help either (NT)!Tuesday, April 09, 02:56:20pm

Looks like the sleeves are the issue to me, too. Best bet when you face this dilema is as posted above, take out the sleeves and see where the armscye hits the dancer. (NT)BJTuesday, April 09, 04:14:59pm

This dress is actually too big for the dancer.(more)My opinionTuesday, April 09, 09:59:19pm

This has me thinking...is there a percentage formula for the width of the sleeve cap? I feel like I'm always winging that area, but have never seen anything addressing the ease beyond "check the mockup, slash & spread if needed". (NT)hmmmWednesday, April 10, 11:11:58am

I always always put gathers at the sleeve cap to avoid this problem. (NT)d. makerWednesday, April 10, 07:17:17pm
