Sorbetto blouse from Colette Patterns (free download at http://www.coletterie.com/colette-patterns-news/free-pattern-to-download-the-sorbetto-top). Adjusted the pattern to make a 3" FBA (using this tutorial: http://lazystitching.wordpress.com/2010/12/02/fba-basic-bodice/) and added elastic under the front seam to keep it snug against my underbelly; only sewed the pleat down to right under the bust line. Still has a gaping armhole problem, but will take care of that with the next iteration of the pattern!
