I've never used Jalie patterns before and I'm getting ready to make their t-shirt pattern, #2805. Should I determine size according to high bust or full bust measurement? I normally need to do an FBA with most patterns.

I asked this a while ago and was recommeded to choose by my full bust, however I didn't like the shoulder fit in the particular style I was making (the sweetheart tee), so re-made it by high bust at my shoulders and full bust size from bust down.
I also think it depends a bit on how wide your shoulders are, and the particular style you are making.
Some styles I make at my full bust size, other my high bust size with a cheater FBA
So I guess the answer is a thoroughly unhelpful - It Depends!
