For this project I drafted a pattern myself using my own measurements. It is a basic bodice pattern with shoulder darts moved to the side seams. I also had to adjust the armhole to reduce gaping due to full bust – the tutorial by prettysweet helped a lot with it. This probably is the first top in the last twenty years which has no armholes that gape or cut into my armpits. The hem is not straight on the purpose – I wanted it to be diagonal so it adds some dynamic to the top.
