thanks! it took me all summer to figure out the pattern - I was always too afraid and unsure to make alterations by hand. I had to do a lot of them. I made the front neck 5/8" smaller, back armhole half an inch smaller thus creating a shoulder dart, and back neck pattern 3/8" smaller to control the gaping I was getting. I was avoiding sewing many things for YEARS because I didn't know how to solve my problems.
