This is really only meant for two people to see - one is a non-LJer, hence this post being public. It will probably go away as soon as advice is acquired. But if you fancy offering some advice, heck, I'm listening.

So, the best I can describe it is... it fits fine across the apex and across my shoulders (when my arms hang down which they aren't in these pix as I'm awkwardly trying to take photos in a mirror) but it's clearly far too broad across the expanse of chest from apex to collarbones (call it the "slope" if you like). So it's not just a matter of simply slicing something off the front panel at the side seams

General front view
. I know, it's too pointy at the bosom, but that's easily fixed, at least - I'll smooth those lines out on the next draft.

Reaching forward with my oh-so-toned arms, the problem becomes particularly apparent

bodice pattern
This is the pattern I worked out from my basic bodice sloper
. It's entirely possible I've done something fundamentally WRONG right here. Enlightenment appreciated!

I may be totally talking out of my arse here, but from the photos, I'm thinking that a princess-seamed thing might be better for your shape, and screw screen-accuracy. Not sure if there's another way of eliminating the looseness between the girls. (But-- then, how do you bone it? I'm only a journeyman, so I am somewhat flaily here.)
