When choosing a pattern, do you really go by your measurements? I usually wear a size 10 on the bottom in RTW,(I am 6 feet tall and weigh around 150)) but according to my measurements (31 waist and 41 hips)I should be in a size 14 or 16. Can this be right?? According to my high bust I should be in a 14 but I tried that once and it was huge.
How does it work if you are making something out of knit fabric which you want to cling in the right places?? I feel like I will be swimming in a size 16.
