1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / sizing? my top is 5 times too big on: July 22, 2008 11:48:49 PM
so i have simplicity 4269 (see http://www.northbreeze.com/Patterns/DiscontinuedSimplicityPatterns/SimplicityPattern4269-GownIncludesPlusSizes.htm)
and i drafted the pieces for the top, and put them together, and they fit pretty fine
except that the two back panels overlap each other completely ><.  so i think i'm misinterpreting the way it's supposed to fit.

this is my first time working from a store-bought pattern, so i think i might be reading the sizing wrong, or something?
according to the way i interpret the size chart here:http://www.simplicity.com/designFrame.cfm?dvPage=/assets/4269/4269.pdf&design=4269
i should fit a 16.  my measurements are about 38-30-38, give or take 1/2 an inch on certain days.
has anyone else made this pattern and had a similar problem?
