yeah Flyawayskyx3, well what my girl did was measured bust waist and to the very outmost part of her hips. When you put it on your pattern, or cut it out; (It's much like a summer time dress where it hugs your body.) Cut it in a curved pattern so it essentially hugs your body. Also The Jacket I used a Denim short cut-off Jacket, had someone hem it up to make it to the exact Aerith Measurements, and then used RIT color dye "wine" little by little to get the color I wanted. I honestly can't help on the end of the jacket, as I went with the FF Crisis Core Aerith not FF7 original, but I'd use wonderflex. Very cheap, and very moldable. Hope that helps!
