Nice top QQ. Nice to see you testing so many new things, eg. CS machine and an ITY knit.

Oh Belinda, I am having soooo much fun, thanks to your urging me to try the ITY and to ditch the cranky coverstitch feature of my old overlocker! Thankyou very much- and your new cotton blouse looks fantastic on your blog!

Its funny, the pattern hasn't been altered at all, so if the fit is good it is because my measurements closely match the pattern measurements (except not the waist, which is thick), and I'd say that Khaliah Ali's sizing is accurate. Some patterns have garments turn out all over the place I find, to the measurements they state will fit... but so far Khaliah has yet to guide me wrong. Also, the fit could be because the fabric has the correct stretch factor to the pattern recommendation scale, my bust is larger than B cup but because of the fabric I think it stretches to accommodate my one cup larger size- and lets remember here we are dealing with a plus size pattern. If anything it feels a little larger under the bust but is nice to have some ease in there.
