Hello all,
I'm brand new around here. I made this account to ask this specific question. I'm also releatively new at sewing, so I don't really know much.
I made a dress from the Butterick pattern B4827:
I've made two alteration to the pattern: removing the train and adding ease to the upper arms (There was only 1" of difference between the wrist and bicep...Pfffft)
It seems the armpit area doesn't have enough ease either though. I can't seem to move my arms without ripping the sleeves straight off the bodice.
So how do I add in ease to an armpit seam? I've thought of cutting the hole wider, but if that isn't what is needed I've ruined the whole thing.
