It looks great. I like the striking colour combination you chose. So do you measure as a size 16 or had you sized down expecting it to be oversized?

Hi Kathleen, Thanks for commenting. I was making this for my sister, who was a size 16 by measurement and the initial garment was several inches too small. However, as I mentioned there are 13 seams around the body, so even small errors in the seam allowance add up.
