I love this pattern http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350400.20

but I'm wondering how can I make it longer so it fit my shape which I'm pretty chesty. Would like it to be long enough to cover my waist.

Any suggestion for adjusting this pattern? This is my first clothing piece so I'm pretty blank.

Because of the construction, I'm not really sure you'd have too much luck making it longer, and since it's custom fit, it should fit you similarly to the way it fits the girl modeling it.

That said, I'm pretty sure if you increased the length you knit/crocheted it (she makes it 6 inches longer than the circumference of her arm, so you could go more like 8 or 10) that should do it. You'd also end up with longer sleeves if you did that, theoretically. I'd give that a shot and let us all know if it works! Smiley
