Does anybody know of a pattern for a wrap top that has different pieces for different cup sizes? A dress pattern would be OK if it could be easily shortened to a top.

It's a custom-made designer original. I made it myself.

McCalls or Vogue used to have one but they are OOP now. They are hard to search for because MCCalls described theirs usually as "Made for You." I have the pattern. Let me see if I can find it.

ETA: McCalls 5323
You can search for reviews for it. There are many. Don't know where you can find it now though. eBay?

There's one on ecrater. Boy, you would have to do something about those sleeves wouldn't you? Otherwise you would look like a pirate. Ha! At least that's an easy fix. :)

Thank you for looking up the number, Frame. It's not quite what I had in mind -- I was thinking of a knit top -- but it would work for what I have in mind.

Yeah, those sleeves are a bit scarey :-D

Oh, a knit top! Hmmm. Did you want a full wrap like the blouse or just sort of a layered over type of thing? You know where it sort of crosses over a little under the bust and there's an empire type seam. I do think those are out there.

Technically not a wrap, but it is a wrap style top:

If you're looking for a knit wrap top that fits a larger cup size (I'm a DD) I recommend Christine Jonson's 426 Princess wrap. It doesn't have different cup sizes but it fits larger busts very well. There are several reviews here on PR.

I was hoping for a full wrap knit top. I will probably go with the CHristine Johnson pattern because the princess seams will make it fairly easy to do an FBA. It is hard to do an FBA on a full wrap tops. I have an E cup bust these days so an FBA is very necessary.

juliette2, I belive a US DD is the same as an Aussie E, so you shouldn't have to do an FBA. Take a look at my review shown HERE. If you look at the pictures of the orchid colored top in my 1/1/2009 update I am wearing a DD (E) molded cup bra. I have only raised the CF neckline by 2 inches...no FBA at all.

Sandra Betzina's Vogue 8151 includes adjustments for different sized bustlines. There are over 70 reviews of it here at pr. Some love it; some don't. But the sheer number of reviews indicates that it is worth considering. You might want to check out some of the nicest-looking photos and read what people think.
