Hi Beesnbutter, I didn't really go down a size. I forgot to mention in the review that I added elastic to the shoulder and neckline to secure it. Below the bustline through the upper hip area I scaled the size down a bit to fit me. This was done as I sewed the dress. I omitted the zipper because the knit had enough stretch in it to get in and out of the dress. Thanks for asking, Cennetta

Love it! I have the same pattern and am waiting to make it in a knit too! Did you have to go down a size for the knit on this?

Terrific dress. Dramatic without being over the top.

Gorgeous dress and I love how you took the time to get the print down the center.
