Good points on this pattern. I'm glad I read this first. I do like the pockets so will check my size I too will make a 14.

Really, really helpful information. As a busty lady I needed the boxy comments and especially the pocket comments. I've had some that look great and some of that terrible variety. I hope this helps avoid that. Also, I'm thinking of eliminating the sleeve tabs. I'll take a look. Thanks!
