I read a lot of complaints on Amazon that only "anorexics" could fit into these clothes. I'm a size eight and a medium (pants and top respectively) and have had no size-issues with any of the patterns. I fit into the mediums just as I would in normal clothes.The patterns themselves are very simple and fun to do as well as being lovely.
