Hi there, sorry for the delay in response! In your case, since you’re wider in the front, it makes sense to make adjustments to the front pattern only. I would choose a pattern size, according to your bust measurement, that way you can make sure that everything above the bust (shoulder area) fits properly. I found this page that kind of gave a visual on how they corrected an issue that sounds similar to yours (minus the hip part): Unfortunately, they don’t go into great detail but it should give you an idea. If you do make an adjustment, make sure that you create a quick muslin so you can test the fit and see if any further adjustments are needed. You also might find an easier time, with patterns that are fitted on top and looser around the midriff sections, more of an empire bustline silhouette. Hope that provides some help.
