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?

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.

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!

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

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.

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, sigh.....you look great in that suit so don't let the number get you! = )

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.
