While the finished result is lovely and pattern easy to follow, the sizing is extremely flawed. I cut on the size 7 lines and the finished garment was more like a size 4. I am a seamstress by trade so it was not user error. Also the directions call for leaving the inside shoulder seam open for turning, but if you want to pipe the edges of the neckline it makes for a more polished result to sew the shoulder seams closed for both the bodice and lining and turn by pulling the front through the shoulders to the back. I will use this pattern again, with modifications and knowledge that the sizing is small by 2-3 sizing--quite the opposite of most patterns that run large.
