What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fit. I'm a GG bust and normally a pattern like this would gape at the neck and pull in the wrong places. It's a loose fit, but making the pattern adjustments was so worth it. Now it fits beautifully and looks the way I imagined it would.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely use the pattern fitting instructions, if the regular measurements don't work for you. However, for a large bust, you need to add a dart. Don't know why that was overlooked in the instructions. Also, be patient. The style is meant for soft fabrics which can be a little harder to sew.

This is a great shirt!
