What are you most proud of? Custom bodice pieces for bust sizes A-D! I think we're the first indie pattern company to offer this option. I hope it will take some of the frustration out of sewing for those who don't fit into the standard "B" cup grading!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's a great pattern to learn how to install a zipper, pockets, and buttonholes. In the near future, look for video tutorials at
