 I am wanting to make a ruched pin up bathing suit, the pattern is a Princess Cut (where the seams go over the bust down,1 front panel and 2 side front panels, for people who aren't familiar). I assume I'll need to have extra length when I cut to ruche fabric, not sure how to ask my question, but do I cut my fabric normally then ruche, do I need to alter the pattern to lengthen the bust curves length wise and width wise, or do i cut basic rectangles, ruche the fabric, then cut fabric to according to pattern? Did that make sense? I've made princess cut w/ modest skirt bathing suits and gathered tired skirts but not gathered anything on curves yet, I would like to make something similar to this,

but I think since this is my first attempt I might make it as a 2 piece where the tank is longer and looks like a 1 piece,, any advice and opinions would help,, thanks!
