Okay, so here is the lazy girls guide to a full bust adjustment: If you are between sizes, start from the size larger bust measurements, add a bit more, and then size down at the waist. Those are pretty useless directions I know, but that is what I finally did that worked for me. I figured out what would work for this pattern so that my boobs wouldn't get squished at all. A-mazing. Hopefully this technique works on my next pattern because I am for sure going to try to make it work again.
Anyways, here is my last (for a while) Elizalex, this time with a long skirt. I also added some length at the the waist for a slightly different fit.
Man oh man, this is my favorite Elizalex yet. AND it has pockets! Yay for me, I am so awesome I can hardly stand it.
I got this fabric for my birthday form my friend Kimmi, and the wheels in my head immediately started turning towards a long Elizalex. I am so glad I went for it!
So there you have it- the Elizalex is a great, easily adaptable pattern, that I highly recommend. I still want to make one with the skirt provided one of these days, but I have to get up the nerve to try that again.
It might not be for a while though because I have several new patterns that I am just itching to try! I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait! Ahhhh!!!! I love sewing so so much!!!!!
