Is that one of the Amazing Fit patterns? If so can you tell me how well sized it is and if you had to make any changes,please? I've never been able to get my head around altering for a full bust adjustment and love that the Amazing Fit has cup sizes not just inches but I just haven't been able to bring myself to try one yet!  Roll Eyes
I love the print you used and the addition of the bow is cute  Smiley

Oooh, that fabric is special! Good job on your first sewing pattern! I especially love the button you put on the bow, it makes it so sweet and quirky :-)

Thanks the fabric was 3.50 pm which was good, and yes Kookaloo_Starr i had to add an extra pannel at the back as the size was out but that could of been down to it being my first ever time doing a pattern as i uswaly just make it up as i go along, it wasnt out by much though and i didnt have a zip so i wanted so i could pull it over my head. But the bust is good the pattern comes with the sizes per cup so you chose the cup size you are and use that pattern peice whitch is good you dont have to size it its presized and it shows you where in the instructions if you do want to take it in or out where you can. There also half price at boyes atm i dodnt know if its all boyes but ours it is so they start from like 2 atm which is good. Smiley
