I agree with ggf2005. Pin and slash this one to death and alter the pattern for the next one accordingly. I know the shoulder area is cut like an all-in-one facing so alterations are hard to do (no seams). A quick and dirty FBA in knits would be to add to the side seam in a> shape at the Bust line. I think I read this here, somewhere. Why don't you post in the Fitting Woes section? (I haven't checked if you have, I admit)

Call this one your muslin, then get a friend, sister, someone you trust to help you do the following..pin the arm holes so that they fit, slash the bust at your bust point, open it up until it fits, then pin a piece of muslin to fill in the opening. transfer the changes to the tissue paper pattern and make a new muslin. I use "Fantastic Fit for Every Body" by Gale Grigg Hazen from Rodale publishing.
