On bodices and heads meeting desks

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

Grabbing the gap
