I need help!! I want to make a Camp Shirt. I have only made the basic pattern - 1st one and then I changed to Vista so had to change the program and then lost my measurements etc. I had done the basic blouse with a zipper in the back and it was a great fit but the armholes were to tight. I have reinserted the measurements and now I want to make the Camp shirt with short sleeves and a collar. The arm holes need to be longer and larger but I am not sure how to do with. Any help will be appreciated. Carol

You may have an error in your chart.

Open your chart, click on print and send it to support@wildginger.com

To answer your questions a camp shirt usually has a slight drop to the shoulder and a bit lower armhole with a flat sleeve cap.

But, please let me look at your chart first.

The chart is not in balance.  FSW can't be longer than BSW and the slopes are out of balance.

Send me the chart by email - click my email at the bottom of this post.

Also send me pictures of your fitting garments - front, back and side view.  I need to see your head.
