I did do the same thing as Elena - that of making the back of my dress higher and yes it did somewhat support the shoulders better. But I still have some difficulty keeping my shoulder straps up. And yes the sleeves definitely would drag my shoulder straps down. So for "my next trick" I plan on making my straps at an angle on the back side of my shoulder, more toward the center between my shoulder blades(not actually to the center however).

Reviews I have read on the Simplicity pattern mention the same issue with the shoulders. So what is up with that?
