I am 4’11” In my 60’s and would wear a size 1X Petite if they existed. I have spent the day in stores trying on bathing suits. now that I have stopped alternatly crying and screaming, I need to make a new bathing suit. what I want is to understand how to measure myself against the pattern. I am between a c & d cup and the commercial cups are set too far apart. I can’t seem to figure out where to shorten the suit to get the waist, bust and hips where they belong. tell me that there is another petite plus out there. and that she understands how to deal with this.
