Thanks. I looked over additional threads on this and examined the seam and fit of the jacket again. It occurred to me that, rather than raising the armhole itself, perhaps a fix would be to let out the seam a small amount (say 1/4 to 1/2 inch) on the front and bottom of the armhole. This might result in the chest size effectively expanding but that could be remedied by taking in the rear center seam. ?????????
