Details, details...

Thanks to everyone who commented on my post about fitting my jacket muslin! I'm hoping to be ready to start sewing on Monday.

Here's my second muslin, if you're curious.

The last thing that I'm concerned about is the shoulder seam. I've heard over and over again that the back piece of the shoulder seam should be a little longer than the front part, and eased in.

But on the pattern I'm using, the seam matches perfectly without any easing.

Should I adjust the shoulder of the back piece to be a bit longer? How much longer? 

Should I just slash down through the shoulder seam and across to the armscye and spread it?

Can someone suggest a tutorial that would show how to do this?

Thanks again for all the help!
