If I were a size 12 I would have felt very bad about spending the money on this pattern. When you can get similar ones for less that actually have sizes. As it is, for a plus lady, it is a great pattern.

Park Bench claims that they fit 12-18. In my experience, they mostly fit 14-16 well. Which isn't too much of a problem - those of you have are or have been in this size range know that it's very neglected - rarely included in 'garden variety' sizes, and rarely done well in large size lines. However, a person way out of this range shouldn't complain that they have to alter, and perhaps that they don't even get good results after a lot of work - the patterns state clearly what sizes they're for...

I'm pleased to see a positive review to a Park Bench pattern. I enjoy their potential and have had fun with the three I've done. The pants pattern you selected is one of my favorites too. One does sort of have to "wing it" with Park Bench but the same is true of other small company patterns. I look forward to your photos. Good review.
