I cut a size 12, and had to make a few adjustments to get the fit close to right (I made two muslins). I shortened the waist 1 1/4″ and the length by 2″ so that it would hit below my knee as opposed to mid-calf. I also ended up making the side seams a full inch to get this bad boy to hug my curves. I also tried to match the print at the center back seam, and inserted my first invisible zipper.
The adjustment I’m most proud of was figuring out how to lower the back 6″ and re-drafting the back facing to fit.

I used some emerald/ teal and gold brocade I found on sale at Joann fabrics (This hot little number cost me less than $20 to make).
