In my experience, most patterns are made too big, even if you go by your measurements.  You may just have to take them in and get rid of some of the extra fabric.

I agree with mystico's comments - many of those patterns have a huge amount of ease to them.  I typically go down a size with most patterns and if the ease is more than what I would like it to have, I may go down two.
