I usually wear about a 20-22 off the rack - I made this in size 22. It could *easily* stretch to fit larger sizes & still look great on them if you used the right jersey.

I followed the pattern exactly, made no alterations & I LOVE this.

This is so great, and you look so good in it! Love the color scheme in the fabric you chose.

Did you use a regular sewing machine for the jersey, or a serger?

I have admired this pattern for a while but never really saw it on a real person...it looks wonderful and flattering!

The colors look great with your skin and hair as well...

Nice transition into fall as well!
