OK, my bust hasn’t measured 32″ (the size of this vintage 50s pattern) since circa 1972, but by using every scrap of width in this old shift dress I managed to adapt it to fit.  Paisleys have to be amongst my favourite textiles.  Below pics of the top pattern I used and the vintage shift dress I cut up to make my top.
