Thanks! Yes, you could easily change the shoulder seam so that it was not dropped but it would not be very period accurate if you did. The dresses in this era had dropped sleeves to make the shoulders look wider and thus giving the illusion of a smaller waist. I prefer fitted shoulders too but had to make them dropped in order to be period accurate.
