Its amazing how much extra you need to add to patterns for 'ease'.  3" would probably have been better, don't forget you will still want to be able to move and breathe when you wear the costume!!  The thing that always tripped me up was calculating in the seam allowances.  Sometimes I'd forget to multiply by 2 and just add in one seam allowance.  Things would be too small.  But it looks like you are on the right track.  Really good work.  I love the little maquettes too.  Maybe you should make some out of fabric to have miniatures of you costumes!!
