I have had a question about the Back Shoulder Width not drafting to the measurement in the chart.  When you select no back shoulder dart the back shoulders have to adjust to sew to the front shoulders.  If it didn't adjust the shoulder would not sew together.  The back shoulder dart makes the shoulders fit.  If there is a small dart you may be able to ease it, but you need to draft with the dart.  This drawing shows a wider back shoulder width without the dart and how it would fit to the front if it didn't adjust.
