I hate the back/underarm shirt wrinkle! I started working on Victoria Jones pattern 220 for my Dad's Christmas present:
I made a muslin and its a little small. That is easily fixed, but I hate the back arm wrinkle. The picture above is actually from a RTW shirt my dad owns. The muslin did the same thing. I read somewhere that it is because the armsyce is set in too low because of the drop shoulder.
What do I do to fix this? Is it even necessary? My dad has a rounded back too. Could this be amplifying the problem? How would I fix this in a shirt with a back yoke?
I realized that I see this men's shirt wrinkle everywhere, on mostly hawaiian style shirts. My Sketching I instructor has the same problem :)
Any thought/comments would be most appreciated. I need to get this thing made before Christmas. He's been waiting for this shirt since our trip to Maui in July when we bought this fabric:
