Congrats on the weight loss! That’s awesome. Definitely no more than two sizes. I sew and even altering a pattern (nevermind a sewn garment) would be a problem. Especially if you are losing weight in the back or bust. The hips and waist are easiest to alter, IMHO.

I had one taken in 4 sizes because there was a mistake with the ordering. It was a simple dress style though so I was lucky.

Yep pretty sure it’s only 2 sizes down…one of my BMs is ordering a size above her regular size cos they don’t have hers in, and she’s getting it altered.
