Beautiful. A really great suit for work and change accessories and out for a drink. We are always a number unfortunately. But just make a choice to be your own number 1 fan regardless of size.

This is a stunning suit. You did a great job with it, and I love it! I lost 80 lbs and still found myself a size 12/14 in the pattern world, look great in that suit so don't let the number get you! = )

Great job on this jacket--I love the look with the scarf.

Great looking suit-I had to laugh at your concern over the sizing. You have done an amazing job and will get loads of wear out of these two pieces.

Fabulous suit - yes, agreed, regardless of the numbers, the fit and style flatters and makes you look the perfect size. Congratulations on your success!

You look gorgeous and not at all a size 18! These are just numbers, everyone will admire the fabulous fit and the great details of the jacket!

Your suit is lovely and the story behind your scarf is very touching...what an honor.

You did a beautiful job on this suit. The fit is perfect and the line is so flattering. The scarf adds the perfect dash of style and love.

Your link to the picture isn't working, but about the sizing, its just numbers, in no way related to RTW. Try Sandra Betzina's Todays Fit is numbers freak you out, those are alphabet sized insteadm kind to the self esteem! What matters is not the size you cut but that the pattern comes close to your measurements. I'd love to see your garment if there is another link you can try or see if the link you provided needs fixing?
