Thanks!! Oh, I forgot to say what size I used! I'm usually exactly a 16 on top and 18 from the waist down, according to my measurements. I almost always cut those sizes (including in this pattern). On sleeves, I need the finished bicep measurement to be at least 15 1/4" which is almost always a lot bigger than the pattern. On Vogues especially, I sometimes need to shorten the waist. Other than that, it's mostly a bit of fiddly lengthening/shortening to get things like elbow shaping (if any) to end up at the right height. There's some more info on my usual fit issues in my profile. Hope that helps! I'll certainly try to remember to put the size info in my reviews, and let me know if there's a particular measurement you need!

Wow - you give a lot of helpful information. This is a lovely jacket on you. If possible, could you please give more information on your own measurements and the size you used, in your informative reviews. It would certainly make the difference in my understanding how to apply what you say if I choose to purchase and make the pattern. I certainly am going to look for your reviews from now on.
