I managed to align the pattern piece for the back so that the only large "leaf-burst" on the piece of fabric I had was centered on my back. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be prepared to use bias tape to stabilize the stretch of the fabric across the back and around the armholes. I used the "press into a curve" technique I learned in the Jean-ius course on Craftsy to match the curves without any buckling or folding of the tape.
