No matter what you do to the pattern it is a challenge to make if fit as seen in pictures. Always make a sample muslin before cutting into good material. You will have to increase the length every where. Remember the sleeve shoulder seam was about an inch to 2 inches below where we wear them today. Women (even the heavy ones) were very petite compared to us today.
Enjoy yourself with this as it is very versatile with fabrics and trims.
