As usual with Vogue patterns, I cut the dress to size 10, grading to size 12 through the hips. This actually had to be run back in to size 10 after the fact though as it did not sit nicely. I found the neckline too high as well and had to lower it by 1cm.
While I love this dress, it is a little snug through the thighs and hips so is not ideally suited to a sitting down all day kind of dress on an hourglass or pear shaped person. It will definitely be made again in one form or another though!
