Step 1: Body Measurements
Make 3 measurements: below bustline, center of below bustline to center of shoulder, and below bust line to desired length.

Step 2: Pattern Creation (optional)
Create two pattern: One for the top part, one for the bottom part. Pattern is drawn for sewing seams.
Step 3: Cut fabric
Cut 2 pieces of each pattern. Decide if you would like to mix and match fabric to give each pieces a color twist. Allow 0.5" for surging. Allow 1" on T1, U1, F1, B1. Note: You might want to allow more on T1 depending on the elastic band width.

Step 4: Surge all pieces.
Surge all sides.

Step 5: Sew pieces
Sew trimming onto the 2xS sides if you like. Otherwise, just fold in and sew to give a polish hem on the sleeves. Assembly pieces. The goal is to sew F1 and F2 to T1 at one go. Repeat for B1 and B2 to T2. Measure a piece of elastic band the length of B. Cut it in half. Insert each into the tubing you created on T1 and T2. Pin the ends. Fold The right sides of T1 and T2 together and sew the sides. At this time, you will sew the elastic band as well. Finish the bottom hem.
