Hi Corin,

I am going to post this on the board as well as send this privately to you:

When finding a pattern for a shirt or dress - go with the bust size.
When making pants and skirts - go with your waist size (I know most fashions hang from the hip these days - but the waist can be altered).

For some really good advice on this, check out:
