    Ah, now I see what you mean. For that, you should true up using the original side seam. It will bring in your side seam by the dart by a bit, but you’ve added extra space near the front of the top so you’re still adding ease.

    Or if you really need/want that extra bit at the side seam, add the equivalent amount to the side seam of the sleeve piece. It won’t make a significant difference to the fit of the sleeve, but it will give you the extra room you wanted.

    I hope that fixes the situation!

    While I am not entirely confidant about the route I took to get here, I do believe I will be able to repeat the sewing process for my customized maritime top with relative success. I attached a quick photo of the finished garment here. The bottom hem stretched a bit but overall it fits well and I do like how the darts shape the front. I lowered the front neckline some to give a nicer line, since the full width of the original boat neck is too wide for my shoulders. Thanks to @liesl and everyone for the tips.

    @with_love_Heidi Thanks, I was close to giving up on this one but once I sacrificed the sleeve going in perfectly it was going to work.


    @sarvi
    Thank you.


    @lightningmcstitch
    Thank you.

    I am wearing the top today so maybe I can get a better photo.
