So I brought the shell with me to Canada to burn (well, those were my intentions). Anyways, while I was showing it to my mom, she said that it would probably fit her - and guess what??? It fit her perfectly. At least it fit someone and I didn't have to burn it=) I still feel that the pattern is complete crap though - this size that my mom is modelling is the extra small (supposed to fit bust size 30). And I had her check my gauge too, and it's right - it's just the pattern that does not work out.
