The Spirren Tank Top from Itch to Stitch

With the heat wave we've been experiencing (not unusual as it IS summer in Texas!) I've found myself wearing sleeveless dresses and tops frequently.  That way I'm comfortable when I have to be outside, and if I happen to be in place where the A/C is rather freezing (why do they do that?!?) I can simply add a cardi.  When the call went out to test the Spirren Tank Top from Itch to Stitch I quickly signed up.  I knew it was something that would work with my lifestyle, and the design looked to be flattering.   The fitted tank top includes options for regular and full bust, with a slightly curved V neck, gathers at the shoulder seam, pleats under the bust, and a lined front bodice.  I choose my size based on the measurements provided, sewing a size 8, with the full bust option, for the front and cut a size 10 in the back. I decided on that sizing after sewing a a straight size 10, with full bust option, for my test version.  I felt it was a bit large around my upper bust area,
