    Hello! The Terrace Dress is described as having a “forward shoulder” and I’m wondering where the shoulder seam should sit.

    I’ve already made one version and have planned two more. This pattern has been great for jump starting my sewing mojo. Thanks, Liesl!

    Glad you like it! I forget how much exactly, but I think it’s just moved forward 1/2″ It just gives a better fit, in my opinion. You can check the distance by laying the garment flat from the underarm seam. It’s not really a big deal, I just think it looks better when it’s worn.

    Thanks for your reply! I figured it was not a big deal. I was mostly curious. But I often need to move the shoulder seam forward, so was thinking that if I did it for this pattern, I’d wonder where I was shooting for.
