    I am ridiculously jealous of all the ladies with the cute little boobs that most clothes were made for! I love the hippie-style apron dresses, and the cute t-shirt dresses everyone has made on here; I have made similar styles, but always have to give them away because I have a large rack in proportion to my body size, and it's hard for me to keep the suckers (these suckers being boobs) in without  having them smooshed out. Does anyone have any practical tips or handy pattern considerations to deal with this? I like knit fabrics, and would like to sew more with them, but I need to learn a better way to construct around the bust! Darts are NOT cutting it!

What you want is a full bust adjustment!  Check out this blog for a basic introduction:  http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=486

Basically, what you're doing is adding just to the bust area of a pattern, to alter it to a larger cup size.  Good luck!
