    First of all I am not a professional but the method Nancy Zieman used is quite helpful. We should buy top patterns based on our necks and shoulder area and alter the pattern for bust, etc. It is much easier to make bust larger or smaller than the area you referred to. So, now the problem is: pattern cos. do not give you a clue so you will have to experiment with sizes. Buy pattern smaller than before and make a muslin first after altering bust, etc.

    This is good advice! More info on making a muslin and making adjustments here: https://www.threadsmagazine.com/2011/05/17/how-to-fit-a-muslin
