I use this pattern a lot for the shell, but have had the same problem with the front being too wide. I keep narrowing the front but haven't gotten to where it really fits yet. Let me know if you succeed! Johanna

There is an article in the September issue of Threads magazine with a slightly different (and more complicated) solution for narrow upper chest. I tend to have this same problem with Vogue patterns. Recently I made a Burda top and simply cut a smaller size above the bust, which worked well. I have not tried the King method so I'm not sure how well it would address the neckline issue.

Bet, are you referring to the Kenneth King article or another?
