Let’s see . . . modifications. I bound the neck using my coverstitching binder. I made the black waistband about 1/2” shorter on each side for a total of about 2” shorter all the way around. I had to stretch it more to fit the bodice and skirt. But, when it’s on, it sucks it in and makes it a bit more fitted. I sewed the side seams little larger than the recommended 1/4”.
I didn’t make any other adjustments except to add an inch under the bust. I do this to almost all patterns. On this one, it’s especially important so the band doesn’t ride up over your bust. I love the short kimono sleeves.
