I totally dig this Simplicity pattern (1800, “Amazing Fit”), but the sizes seem quite funky : I’m a 42, since I was using some 100% cotton interlock jersey (so not to elastic) I cut a 40, and it’s still 2 sizes too big ! (I’m used to simplicity so this wasn’t a seam allowance mistake).
I’m going to sew it again very soon, this time I’m gonna make a 36 I guess.
The pattern is lovely to follow and wear.
