I loved this pattern when I saw it and first made it up in the absolutly worst fabric...a featherweight knit that had to be lined. What was I thinking? anyway the sleeve fabric at the cbust and armhole was not ok so on the second try i started at the notch at the shoulder point and graded out to the XXL size by the end of the sleeve. I cut a L and the grade makes the sleeve fall better thru the bodice. I love it now! Hope this works for you

Cheryl, I do hope you get the fit you're after. Thanks for the comment you left about my dress. If you read the blog, I had to do several minor things. Since you're making up Muslims I would suggest using a smaller cup and size! I found that this pattern runs bigger than the suggested sizing on envelope. I chose from the finished measurements printed on the pattern AND do measure those too!!! By choosing smaller size, some of your areas may prove minimal to work with. I can't wait to see your finished garment.
