this project is well underway, and i got about 4 inches under the arms and decided to try it on.
Exciting news... it fits! It's hard eyeball when you have a 40-something inch bust and are knitting the bust on a 29" needle - unless you take it off the needles and put some waste yarn in to allow it to stretch out.
I'm so happy!
also, i look like valentine barf with a pink shirt under the red lol.
