I started working on the bust. I found it really difficult to duplicate the look, feel, heft or whatever of the natural bustline using quilt batting. Big Ellie wears only sportsbras, so the whole thing is kind of indeterminate. You can see that using big shoulder pads gave it more solidity. I also needed more padding in the upper chest area. I will also need to wrap the neck a little to get to her measurement.
I have been measuring, and comparing, but not obsessively so.
