- I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Ok, working slowly on the wrap dress below. The dress itself seems fine, except for needing to adjust the shoulders near the neck, basically flattening the shoulder. This is customary for me. It's the set in sleeves that are beating me up. I can not get enough ease to pull them up right on the shoulders. I have been checking the books, it seems there is not enough ease and recommends spreading the pattern up the center. I have only one piece left about the size of a fat quarter. If you were me, would you cut and spread and add a gusset/insert in the center and act like it should have been there? Please help!
