Saturday past, Hippie Blue was given to my niece. It was her first glimpse of the sweater. She was even afraid to try it on in case it didn't fit. With one arm in the sweater, she said " Oh Wow! This sleeve is the perfect length." Off to a good start.
In the end, everything fit. The bust, the waist, the length, and most importantly - the hips. (Blog details explaining the tailoring to create the perfect fit are here. )
