Burdastyle #116 made in Python ponte! It took several muslins to get the fit right… I had to add about an inch to the bust and at least two inches to the hips, and I increased the size of the armholes and widened the sleeves by at least an inch. I probably could have use a larger size, but I downloaded this size since I’m a 38 bust and the size 42 is supposedly 37 3/4. And as is clear from all of the other pattern reviewers, the fit is pretty tight. Anyhow, I made it work, with a bit of work. More pictures and construction details on my blog.
