I just finished a muslin of a graded down raglan sleeve top. Everything looks great...until I try to reach my arms in front of me. This is an indicator of needing a wide back adjustment yes? If that's so, how do I do that with a raglan sleeve?

In Fit for Real People p.119 the broad back alteration for a raglan sleeve top shown is to cut and spread the entire back. The cut starts above the notches. The excess is eased into the sleeve. Hope this helps.

As it happens, I actually have that book, and I can't believe I didn't find it in there. Thank you so much. I was thinking of adding darts in the back anyway, and this alteration will accommodate that as well. Muslin #3 here I come (thank goodness it's only 4 pieces).
