Are you a bit hesitant to try such a seemingly-complicated pattern? We highly recommend the Constructing the Princess-Seamed Blazer DVD, specifically created to remove the mystery while simultaneously teaching you some really cool tailoring techniques.
Petite Plus Patterns are designed for the full-figured petite woman, with narrow shoulders, a full bust, a short waist length, and a rounded tummy. The patterns generally include sizes 14-24, and the sizing chart can be seen here. Shirt and jacket patterns include the Perfect Fit Guide (tm), which provides "Extra fitting help for a perfect custom fit." The patterns are designed for a D cup bust, but the Perfect Fit Guide (tm) includes directions for easy alterations.
