Thank you all for your suggestions. Schneiderfrei has very kindly provided me with a translated copy of a pretty recent Rundschau shirt draft that I will be using. I'm planning to start drafting this weekend, but then will have to wait until more fabric arrives for some new muslins. Again, I have to express my appreciation for all the help that this forum has provided me with.

Do yourself a favor - do no yoke. Do a shoulder seam. (because your shoulder and neck area is a bit difficult to fit). Sew the horizontal dart at the back. Make a s.a. about 3 cm at shoulder and side seams . If you want more than 1 cm s.a. at armholes and neck do 2 cm and clip them around about 1 cm.

Draw on the mousseline the bustline and waist line all around. An on each part the grainline vertical. Wait with the sleeve patterntill after the first fitting.

I wish you much success.
