I adapted the pattern to fit my own size, meaning 40. This process was not a total success, because the waist line still ended up a little high and the dress is a little bit large over the waist.
The pattern was pretty easy to follow, but I wanted to add full lining and so things got more complicated :)
But anyway, the end result is a comfortable dress that can be easily worn at work.
