It looks GREAT on you! I especially like the sleeves, (and the backside fits so well, I have booty envy now)
I have been hoarding books from the library, and one especially on pattern alteration.
I would love to know what books on pattern alteration you've been looking at, ingysoup. I took a class on pattern alteration a while back, but my memory is getting a little shady.
Anyway, it looks like your research paid off, sugahoney. Good work!
