Thanks for the reply Anne. Thanks also for the tip about the shoulders - I have wide square shoulders so it's good to know.

Kathleen - I thought the fit on this bodice was much better out of the envelope than the Cambie was. The skirt isn't quite as full as the pattern drawing indicates, but it is still fuller than a regular A-line skirt. Style Arc does mention that this skirt is just above the knee and I found that to be accurate. The skirt length is about 22.5".

That's very interesting. I'm also looking for a dress pattern for a large print. I even considered the Cambie but the bodice needs work! Your skirt looks less full (and also shorter) than the pattern drawing but I guess from what you say about the side seams that the fabric is just very drapey and the fullness is concealed?
