ALTERATIONS: I raised the neckline 3/8", raised the back neck to match the back neck of the Basic Tank. Raised the armhole 1/2". The main alteration was to put the channel for the drawstring on the inside. Before attaching the skirt to the bodice, I centered two buttonholes 3/8" to either side of the center front, each button hole was 5/8" long (on my machine I used a 1/2" button in the buttonhole foot to get that sizing). The bottom of the buttonhole was 5/8" above the bottom edge of the bodice. Then I sewed a line of stitching 1 1/2" above the bottom edge of the bodice. Then I attached the skirt and skirt lining to the bodice as directed, but with a 1/2" seam allowance (creating the bottom edge of my drawstring channel).
