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 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.
