This Webster pattern was exactly as advertised and I made the dress in size 18 C/D based on my measurements. The fit was great through the shoulders and bust especially. It hangs loose through my midsection, which I love. I did shorten the dress about 2" based on my height and love the finished product.
The instructions for the pattern are thorough, but there is a tricky bit when connecting the back straps and still keeping a nice finish. I really like the all-in-one facing and how it is sized a bit smaller than the garment to pull seams to the inside.
I made this in lightweight linen both as a top and a dress in different fabric. I love the facing design. It finishes so tidy and professional looking. As a beginner sewer, this was an easy way to have a garment that I am proud to wear. Thank You!
