I'm trying to figure out how to adjust a ready-made sleeveless dress at the shoulder. The dress is faced from the neck down to 1.5 inches below the bottom of the armhole. The entire facing has been stitched right sides together. I've learned to sew my own clothes and make my own patterns however haven't sewn in many years. I'm hoping that I don't have to undo the entire facing. Any help is appreciated.

What are you trying to do to it? Take it in, let it out? Something else?

I just need to take an extra 1/2 to 1 inch at the shoulder seam.
