I'm making a blouse for my daughter and it looks like I need to do both a narrow shoulder adjustment and a sloped shoulder adjustment. I'm following guidelines in Nancy Zieman's Fitting Finesse book. My question is -- which alteration do I do first when combining? I'm thinking do the narrow shoulder first? Help! I'm new to altering patterns and haven't yet developed an intuition I can count on. Thanks! --Lin

Your instinct is correct.

LCD. The order of adjustments, length, circumference, depth. the shoulder slope is a depth issue.
