I am working on a Vogue jacket pattern (OOP). My front waist is shorter than my back waist by 1". I have tried several different ways to work this out but it seems impossible. If I fold up the one inch on the front of the pattern & also on the back then the CB waist is way too high. Tried slashing above the CB waist tapering to the side seam but that throws off CB seam & grainline. How can this be worked out? Once I can get past this length issue I would be on my way to having a jacket that hopefully fits. Any help is much appreciated.
