I was thinking about making Simplicity 0260 and I was wondering about what size to cut out. I usually cut out a 12 with a 34″ bust but the wearing ease on the pattern says it comes out to 41″. That seems like it’s going to drown me in fabric. I looked at a size 6 and the final measurement is 37 1/2. To me that sounds like a better option but I’ve never had to do this before because I usually work with original vintage patterns and there is not nearly as much ease to deal with. Any advice on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

I've been sewing since I was 6; my grandmother taught me and she also bought me my first sewing machine at 12. I love vintage patterns and have a soft spot for playsuit patterns. I also read a lot so when I'm not sewing I'm reading during my free time.
