And I had the same problem as before.....a crazy amount of ease! I made my usual size 40 bust and 42 waist/hips. After trying it on, I ended up taking it in 2 1/2"!!! And it's still loose fitting. I don't get why so much ease is drafted in these pattters. There's a very cute coat in one of the issues that I was considering but I don't know if I want to bother fitting it.
