Nancywin, I am a petite, I wear an 8 womens, and a 10 in petite. The neckline was a little wide at a size 10 for me. I usually make an 8 for the neck and back, but this pattern looked like it would be OK to just make the 10 and be a l little more flowy, I didn't consider the shape neck opening though. I thought it looked smaller. I should have tapered out to a 12 at the hips to give it more flow.

Pretty fabric. Thanks for the review. This pattern is on my short list to make up for summer. So, did you find that the neckline ran large or small? I usually start with a 10 and then do a FBA and taper out to a 14 at the hips. Any thoughts?
