Hola Lutterloh Amigas.
I just made what was to be a wearable muslin skort #52 from the 2005 system, and a short sleeved short fitted jacket #186.

The skort is perfect!http://www.flickr.com/photos/bajasusana/7819966364/in/photostream
The jacket looks great, except::
It was marked as suitable for fuller figures. I took this to mean it would flatter more buxom women. And using my own measurements it should fit.
Well I had to take it in 1" on each side ( not complaining) but the shoulders gape. I though it would work itself out when the collar went on. Nope, the shoulders stood away from my body by more than an inch!
I took them in and now the sleeves are too big.
It looks nice with the skort, and will be OK as a sleeveless blouse.
So do any of you have a jacket pattern like that that you would be willing to copy and email me? I am happy to do the same for you someday.

It has been awhile since I have been on PR. I cannot figure out how to make my photo links work.
Help!

Oh I see, you are working with a pattern drafting system, Lutterloh. My mistake.
cheers,
