From this position the armhole looks real good! I've made little marks on the collar to remind myself that the collar and rever need to be just a bit wider. I'll post a few sewing pics and then pictures of the PMT5 first draft.

The back armscye was too long even with the shoulder pad inserted. I moved this alteration to the shoulder. That translates to lowering the shoulder point and moving the front shoulder point more toward the back. This tends to produce a slanted shoulder line. Frankly it is a look I like. THe red line is the sewing line. C

The size of the armscye is amazing. but a bit of research in my drafting books indicates that the armscye tend to be half the measure of the chest. Here that would be 25 or 6". Pretty much on the money
