Tripped on this tip today ... a shirt/top alteration for full hips. An alteration useful for hourglass or figure-8 shapes when you want to keep the waist smaller, but allow room for the hips. I usually buy the right pattern size for upper chest measurement, and add more room to the side seams. This alteration from Off The Cuff blog is an elegant solution that maintains the pattern lines better. You may need to scroll down to the 3/29/2009 post.
