This jumpsuit is so comfortable...I did not think I would like it with all the flounce on the chest. But, it seemed to have turned out alright. It was sort of low for my taste, but of course that was just a matter of shortening the straps.

I cut a size 14 up top and a size 16 on the bottom and graded in to the waist. For the top, I added a zipper to mine in the back mainly because my hips required more room for entry compared to the difference at the bust and waist. So, my zipper opening needed to be at least 9 inches in addition to the top edge, whereas the patterns regular "slit" opening only allowed for an additional 4 inches. That just means that the built in "strapless" opening on the top + the back "slit" should total whatever my hips are in order to get them down for nature calls. 39+9 is 48"
Have a great day. Until next time....
