Or will I run into fitting issues? I just need to take a bit off because I don't have a very broad chest and I have a flat stomach... according to the measurements on this pattern, the chest is too broad for me. The back measurement is pretty much fine.

Tried this out tonight: it worked. If anyone ever finds this and wants to give it a go, make sure to make the necessary neck/shoulder/armhole adjustments needed that naturally are thrown off with the grade... so both your back or front pattern pieces will match when sewing.

Yes you can. Mostly you hear of people using a smaller back pattern, but there is no reason it can't be your front that is smaller. You just need to be aware that say, the shoulder seams work better if they are the same length. (Not absolutely necessary - you can always incorporate the extra length on the back by easing in, or darting, or gathering it to match the front).
