    Actually I just noticed that the picture uses satin as well, event though it’s not in the instructions!

    I’ve just finished making this. I made it a bit bigger by adjusting the proportion (ie priting at 112%) and printing on A3 instead of A4 pages as I am a bit bigger than the pattern calls for. I’ve also made it up in a rich blue delustured satin (ie a satin thin enough for a blouse rather than the thicker fabric used for eveningwear). It looks fantastic, although the folds on the front took a bit to get just right.

    Actually if you lower the end of the yoke to below the bust it will not look ridiculous. A larger bust means your neck to bust point is a larger number so you have to adjust the pattern accordingly as with any pattern made for over a B cup.

    Avoid if you’ve got anything approaching a bust line. Looks ridiculous.

    Sews together well enough though.
