The bust sizing was fine, but I needed to take a couple inches in at the waist. I did this by making a bigger seam at the back zipper and also by making the front & back darts bigger. I also added sashing around the waist. I also ended up needing twice the amount of interfacing the pattern called for.
Overall, great pattern, great dress. I can’t wait to wear it!
