Wedding gown bodice fitting sleeves

suzieinohio's picture

I am making my daughter's wedding gown. She has chosen the separates look that is now in vogue. She is a plus size and I bought the largest size pattern, but still had to adjust it up to a larger size with a DD bustline. So far I have gotten the princess seam bodice to fit nicely, but when I try to attach sleeves the shouldeline drops off her shoulders. I also had to increase the sleeve circumference. I've read everything that I can find on your site and have tried several approaches. I am wondering if I need to raise the armholes?

Help please!
