I've looked at the reviews in the Gallery and it's not clear how many Petites made this.
If you have, did you use a smaller size? If not, are you overwhelmed by the volume in your regular Vogue size and which you had gone down?
What about the neckline? If you are short-waisted like I am, and usually shorten above and below the bust, did you still have to fiddle with the neckline?
My mojo is slowly coming back and I found the thin rayon (?) knit I had intended for this but 3 yds of fabric is brutal.
Opinions, please! TIA
