I have never sewn for myself and I just bought the Colette Parfait pattern.  I am super excited, but my measurements are so wacky I don't know what size(s) to cut... What do you all suggest when I measure at a size 2 bust, 8 waist, and 4/6 hips..... sorry if this sounds dumb, but how do i get the bust to fit the waist if I cut a 2 bust and 8 waist?? Or should I cut a 8 bust and do a small bust adjustment?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks!

Always cut your pattern in the largest size that you fit into, and then take it in during your fitting. A mock up would definitely help here - once it's fitted, you can take it apart and transfer your changes to the original pattern.
So basically you would cut everything in size 8 and make adjustments.

Thanks so much!  I was going to make a muslin, but still needed some guidance as to where to start Smiley.
