That piece was drafted by me, the pattern is historical but has been renewed and optimized in it’s correct fit quite a few times. Nevertheless, it has managed to stay quite “original” and is common for theaters or movies to use it for costumes. I drafted it with my actual measurements and reduced the waistline about 6 cm and there was no need to define more. When I wear it, theres a gap in the back with about 4-5 cm, because I actually don’t want the fastening to touch neatly. I plan to lose weight, so maybe later the gap will get smaller. The main reason is to be flexible with weight without ruining the fit. :)
