What a gorgeous and lovely pattern! I made this in size 6 (although I’m size 4) because I wanted an extra roomy fit given that I was working in silk chameuse. I’m 5’6″ but lengthened by 2″ because I wanted to be sure it would be a full maxi dress and not above the ankle. The trickiest part is the welt gather at the waist but mainly because of the slippery silk. I French seamed and voilà, my inner Beyoncé fantasies writ large. Highly recommended pattern! I can see what all the fuss is about.
