    I have been eyeing this pattern since I saw it in the magazine and your version is lovely. I was just wondering if changes were made to the bust dart, or if it was made unaltered. (I’m asking because I will have to make adjustments to the bust dart and I’m trying to figure out how it will effect the look…). Thanks!

      There were no alterations needed to the pattern. It fitted her perfectly.
      Than you so much! :)

      I ‘m a big fan of pockets also and these are wonder-ful. They’re beautiful, handy, and they don’t exag-gerate the hips.
