Stash Buster #21 (of 48) - B6163 Looking for a TNTee

After the ***Success*** of my B6169 Moto Jacket (sadly waiting for me to return to Ottawa to retrieve it!  - secretly I suspect someone wanted to keep it)  I thought I would extend another opportunity to Lisette to prove her patterns can do curvy.

B6183 is my intended:

Here are the muslin shots  of a 16D:
Not enough ease, so I am going up a size, swayback, increasing back hip and taking a nip at the back neckline.
Here are the muslin shots of 18D with the adjustments:
YAY!  I love it - I am wearing it to test the remainder of the day and then I will decide if there are any more changes I need to do.

      I also needed to shift the curve so that the apex was lower.
