Would you like to learn an easy little trick to eliminate shoulder bulk?  This works particularly well for:

  • Lined, sleeveless bodices and shirts;
  • Shirts and bodices for smaller dolls;
  • Shirts and bodices made out of sheer fabric;
  • When you’re using fabric with a beautiful pattern that you don’t want to break up with a shoulder seam line.


Making this change to a pattern makes turning through small shoulders MUCH easier.  And it’s a really easy pattern alteration to make!



I have outlined all the products and tools you will need for this portion of the project below.
