What a success! I think you were smart to go a size larger and get this to fit so well with your efforts - imagine, if you had originally cut it out a size smaller and you'd have had no room to work with, if it proved too small. Me...I'm still learning from your and others' experience until I actually sew. LOL

Despite the sizing issue it looks really great on you! Love the red at the neck and arms, too!
