I got my Jalie patterns in the mail yesterday!!! I leapt for joy. Due to the overwhelming rave reviews on these patterns, I couldn't contain myself. My MIL looked at me funny. I never get excited about commercial patterns.

Anyway. Newbie questions here.

I'm making Jalie 2793 for my 8-yo daughter. She is also very excited. It's the first patterns she ever picked out for herself, including fabric. And my, oh my... her tastes have grown.

Where should I take her bust measurement? Precisely over her apex?

Since October 2014, I've sewn 14 yards! It's nice to see my stash decreasing at this steady pace.

That is where I measure my 4-yo daughter. Also try measuring a top that fits her well and compare that measurement to the pattern pieces just to be extra safe.

Fabric sewn: 50+m
Fabric bought: 5.6m
More space in my sewing area: Priceless

Great tip about measuring her RTW! Thanks.
