I have a Dowager's Hump. I need to know how I can alter the top of the FRONT part of the dress pattern? I found many tips on altering the back for hunched backs but no tips on what to do about the top front part which is much shorter due to the back being hunched. I don't have much problems with the shoulders or back or with the sleeves but mostly with the front. As my waistline is now much higher than it was (and higher than the back waistline) I cut the pattern at the waistline and reduced the length of the top by about 1/2" in the center and it did help in raising the waistline at the front but doesn't help the rest of the top to fit right. Hope someone will have a good tip for me!
