Do you always need to put in a center back seam with an upper back curve or can you some how still keep the back on the fold so you don't have a seam in the middle of you shirt? I can not seem to find an answer.
Thank you in advance

If you want to put the back on the fold, you need to add neck darts if it is a large adjustment. You may be able to ease in the excess fabric if the amount is small and your fabric is cooperative.

If you wait for the perfect time to start, you'll never start.

Ladybegood, thank you for the link to this video. It's the best I've seen for this adjustment.
