    Do you have a reference image for the body pose? If so can you post it? That makes it easier to help.
    You're right there's some issues. Mostly it's with the waist and hips. You have her coming down from the rib cage into a very very tiny waist and then she doesn't seen to come back out where her pelvis/hips should be. Remember women are curvy! Even women that aren't considered a curvy type still have those curves just not as exaggerated.
    If you don't have a ref pic try some of these. I tried to find as close to the angle you're going for as possible but obviously I couldn't find exacts.

    This one is so 80's hahahaa http://images.google.com/url?source=...cH4DUjhVzKynSg

    This one isn't a drawing board picture but she seems to be standing at a similar angle with clothes on that aren't very bulky.

    Edited to add: Doing believable realistic fabric from your head is a pretty advanced skill. Better to find a ref with a body and clothing item like you are going for an copy how the clothes lay on your reference image. You have the cloth bunching in odd areas around the breasts. Are you a girl or have a girl around? Go grab a mirror or another person and take a quick look at how cloth falls on a woman's chest.

    "This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy." -Douglas Adams

    Orangehat - well I think I got it figured out. spending a lot of time on it with out any breaks starts to throw me off. Thanks for the photos, though the sketching part of the reference wasnt necessary, it was the waist part that I was looking for.

    an update later

    {EDIT} Oh and the clothing thing, I was using a reference for that, but the wrinkles are actually there, probably not as much as I have shown, so I will tone it down some.
