Did you sew one of the larger sizes? Crawford makes the hip area 10" larger than the bust in sizes XXL-6X. Unfortunately, while this is on her website (and possible INSIDE the envelope), it's not made clear on the OUTSIDE of the envelope that this is the case. If you look at the finished dress width in the straight sizes, they differ by 2". Then there's a 7" jump in width from the XL to the XXL. 2" between the XXL and 1X, and then 4" difference for the rest of the sizes.

Anyhow, that means the drawing is likely more accurate for straight sizes, but not plus sizes. Sorry you weren't happy with the pattern! I still wish I could see a picture, though.
