Hi and thanks for the reply.
I am looking for the design ease, and my thought was to drop the armhole about 1/4 inch. Sandra Betzina's Power Sewing book has some information about that.
You have confirmed my thinking about how to do the fba too. Thanks!
I am hoping to make this like a shirt jacket in a heavier linen blend that has some drape and weightiness to it. We'll see how it goes!

I always have to make a FBA but didn't realize that a wrap front includes adjusting the opposite side (the "tail" of the wrap). It too needs to be be adjusted to accomodate the extra room needed.
When I did my first wrap style top with a FBA, I didn't consider the need to add to the extension of each side that creates the wrap.
Just thought I would mention so you don't make the same mistake I did.
