For the top I made a 2 1/2 inch FBA for a large top, but it ended up being very large and I ended up taking out 6 inches under the bust from the sides. When I make this again, I will take all six inches out of the front and maybe another inch or two out of the back. I will also correct for my straight shoulders, which I normally do, but I neglected to do here. I also didn't cut the pattern on the bias but on grain.
It isn't the most flattering around the waist, especially from the side, but I really love it and will probably wear it to shreds. I'm thinking that I really need more gauze clothing. The nerdlet took the pictures and she was in a hurry to watch her daddy pet battle on WoW so I couldn't get her to take more.
I definitely don't have enough orange clothing.
