Figured it'd be best to ask here since you all know the inner workings of shirt making quite accurately

 

This is a picture of the shirt on both my body and hanger, as you can see there is a crazy "roll" on both sides of my upper shoulder area. I was told this may be due to "forward shoulders" but I honestly don't see how that's possible considering the same roll is present on a hanger.

Sorry Teknique, I only see the image of the shirt on the hanger.

Whatever's causing it, any sort of roll, bump, wrinkle like this is simply a sign of excess length in the piece that's rolling. Simplest way I know of to start tackling getting rid of that length it is to pin out the wrinkle right where it occurs on the body (or hanger, I guess), then trace the affected parts with the pins left in. In this case, obviously that'd be the yoke and neckline (which in this case looks not wide enough), but probably includes a bit of the fronts, too. Cut new pieces from the tracings and see if there's any improvement in a muslin.

 

Are you getting this on all your shirts from the same pattern, or just this particular shirt?
