Thanks Renren I was thinking of that and a dressmaker showed me another way too, so think I might just have to make a few more to try all the different methods out! Petro I love the fabric toO but as always only brought enough for one project :(

It looks lovely and you found some great fabric, and at 204 reviews this pattern has legs. You know, one way to add room for the bust is by cutting the front longer and then taking up the excess at gathers at the side seams under the arms. (You do this gathering before sewing front to back--its a very preliminary step, like putting darts in. I think of it as a "soft dart" because there's no sharp line as in a dart, but rather soft gathers. ) This provides some room. I learned the technique on a New Look pattern and as I recall, treefrog also highly recommends this method for knits. Just throwing this out there in case it might be of help . . . .
