I’d be grateful for some advice, please.
I’m using the pattern to make five adult bridesmaids’ dresses (!) and have already encountered a problem with the first bridesmaid being typically pear-shaped. She’s a size 14 on her bust and waist, but with 41 inch hips, falls halfway between a size 16 and size 18. Let’s call it a size 17. My problem is that I’ve got to somehow fit the size 17 skirt onto the size 14 bodice (it attaches just under the bustline). The only way I can do it is by keeping the top of the skirt to a size 14 and tapering out the seams down towards the hipline, but in total, I’ve got to add 2 ¼ inches to the skirt. I thought I’d do it on the side seams, but that’s a lot to have to taper out over a fairly short distance. I can’t do it on the front and back panel seams, because the front panel and back panel have ‘common’ seams, which won’t match the side front and side back if I adjust them, if you see what I mean!
Sorry, I didn’t understand about attaching a link, so I hope this one works!

I can’t help you. Sorry but if someone got some informations, I’d like too !!
I think I’ve figured it out. The slit edges actually mean the zip edges. Go figure.
