What you're doing would work if you were a guy.

Issue here is that women's clothes require darts and wedges to fit over the bust properly. That shirt likely fit well enough before you tightened it up. If you read up on bodice pattern making, or check out a fitted women's blouse, you'll see what I'm talking about.

Your options are to either add stretch panels to side or back (shirring, elastic panel, etc) or to add fabric wedges to sides. Since you're taking in garments, you may not have enough extra fabric for second option.

that's the answer. let that shit back out and resign yourself to needing more pins and stitches.

Sorry. Basically, you need to leave more room in the shirt; you're making it too tight
