This looks really cute, but your picture won't enlarge. Sounds like you tweaked it till it worked for you. Great job.

I can only see a small photo but it looks good. I've learned that the pattern sizing is the most frustrating thing about sewing. Good for you for sticking with it and getting a good fit.

very nice. Most retail patterns are sized for a "B" cup. Here's a suggestion on the bust fitting issue. http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/how-to-choose-your-correct-size-pages-339.php Also look at the wearing ease on the pattern and make your decision on what size to use based on how much ease you want or need. Happy sewing!

thanks for the nice comments, and hello Pixie Helen! always great to come across someone else in NZ! :) sorry re photo, was really tired when posting and had some issues with loading it, will try to fix it. thanks too to ggf2005 for the info link. i def need to sort this one out because it happens a lot and i spend a lot of time trying to correct it each time. i am fairly new to sewing so it's all a learning curve at the mo. appreciate any advice
