When I saw Gertie’s Fruity Floral 40s Chiffon Dress I thought I’d give one of the Big 4 pattern companies another try.  I read the size table and cut according to my measurements, lengthening both the bodice and skirt by an inch.  I ended up having to overlap the front bodice pieces by a couple of extra inches as well as take the skirt in at the side seams. It was just too roomy.
