    Well the measurement on my dress form had to go down to 331/2 inches (which made me a bit sad, I guess I had been taking my measurements wrong- either that or the dress form just doesn’t have that squish factor, lol) But the contour bust pattern is so easily adjusted with a couple muslins (I just used scrap fabric to put a couple bodices together and cut and added as needed) you could definitely work with it to see- add some seam allowances and go from there.

    Love it! :) I wonder how would it fit on me because I have small bust.

    @Amberlove: the fit is great. I altered this pattern so many times that it fits me like a glove when I wear it- I’ve made 4 of the contour bust dresses and I love them. I’ll get the boyfriend to take a picture of me wearing it next time and put it up.

    I really like the dress (and the bloomers for that matter). How is the fit on you?
