Sewing Tips
Sewing a muslin/toile first is always recommended since it allows you to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments first.
When choosing your size, I recommend going after your upper bust measurement and performing a full bust adjustment (FBA) if necessary. This pattern is designed for a dessmaker's B-cup. If the difference between your upper bust and full bust measurement is more or significantly less than 5cm (2"), performing an FBA is necessary to get the fit right. A resource for more information on performing an FBA is given in the instructions. Remember that the garment is meant to be skin-tight, but a small amount of ease is still necessary for the garment to fit you comfortably and to allow for movement.

The Story Behind The Name: 'Yoalli' (pronounciation [yowali]) is derived from classical Nahuatl 'Yohualli' and translates to 'night' ?. It is also a first name chosen for both men and women. Yohualli-Ehecatl (night wind) is a deity belonging to the Ometeotl Complex. Ometeotl is a name used to refer to the pair of Aztec deities that, in Aztec belief, are the primordial parents of deities, humans and creation itself. Yohualli-Ehecatl represents the mystery of the night and is also connected indirectly to death, taking careless wanderers at night with him. Occasionally, some would return and be gifted with a long and healthy life. According to a book I read once, people even built benches for Yohualli-Ehecatl to rest upon to calm his stormy character and increase the chances of getting his favour.
