Sewn following the Emily pattern, using Liberty tawna lawn fabric. A bit of a splurge, but the fabric quality and beautiful print is worth it.
Quite simple to follow this pattern. I added 3" of length, and improvised waist darts to the front left and right pieces in line with the tip of the bust darts to add to the shaping.
I also chose to pair the buttons down the front—this is a favorite detail of mine, and I have used it when knitting cardigans as well!
Otherwise there were no modifications made to this size 44 pattern. Enjoy!
