The Misses nightgowns are designed for light to medium weight woven fabrics. We recommend cotton, cottons, sheet, batiste, flannel, silk or silky fabrics. The lady's dresses have a front and back gathered into yokes, and the caps of the sleeves are gathered. View A has a button closure on the front and long sleeves. The View B pullover dress has a two button placket on the yoke and long sleeves with elasticated wrists. The View C pullover dress has short sleeves and the bottom and sleeves are finished with lace or eyelet.
I'm having trouble deciding between xs and s. i understand the pattern runs big. xs is bust up to 32 1/2" . s starts at 34". i'm 33" advice?
You've possibly done this: take two measurements: 1. the high bust which is with the tape up and under the arms; 2. the fullest which is straight across the back and fullest part of bust in front. I've done a quick check of the pattern's measurements: first, the yoke, which is the fitted area of this style, comes in at 13" each for the front (pieces 4 & 8) and back ( piece 4) part. This area is higher than the high bust measurement and remember you'll have a full and gathered sleeve at the shoulder area giving lots of movement ease. Next, the gathered part which connects with the yoke measures about 44 or so inches in XS, and in my book, that's a lot of movement. It your fullest bust measurement is 33", there'll be another 11+ inches of ease. I say XS will be fab on you!

I used buttons, but never unbutton them. I guess it might depend on the size of your head or hairdo.

What size is xl?
Package says Bust - 43-45"; Hip - 45-47"; Back Waist Length - 17"; 60" fabric - 2 7/8 yds; 45" fabric - 4 1/8 yds. I use the medium size and have no experience with XL; however, the pattern can be easily modified. It makes a very nice garment. I use it as a chemise with some elaborate embroidery for my Renaissance costume. I have made short ones out of natural muslin to be worn as men's Renaissance work shirts. Excellent pattern.

If your fabric is 45" wide, it is suggest long sleeve requires 4 1/8 yards while short sleeve needs 4 yards.
