As you can see below, the back seam of the top is completely sewn up, however, when I raise my arms suddenly all this fabric appears. I know this is probably an armscye issue but which one and how to fix it? Looking through all twenty of my sewing books, none mentioned this issue specifically.
So, is this normal, is this ok? It has been a while since I made a straight non-gathered bodice in a woven fabric so I'm not sure. I can add some shoulder darts but is there more that I should do?
I think the armscye is too tight and needs to be lowered, what do you think?
Please help me, I really want to move on to the dress. Any ideas?
*By the way, while I like this fit, in order for this top to become my inspiration shift dress I will need it to fit looser anyway.
