Hello, pink! I’m starting the Cocktail(Dress).
I think I will end up making some kind of S/M hybrid, putting the ease of the garment somewhat between the measurements for these two sizes. I’m ok with some negative ease in the bust, but I don’t want this hugging my tummy and hips in an unflattering fashion, so I’ll just modify as necessary. Hooray for top-down garments you can try on as you go!
So far this pattern looks like it is as carefully planned and written as the BlueSand Cardigan, so I expect an easy journey.
