I assumed patterns were for sizes as on commercial patterns e.g. simplicity. How can I find out the size equivalents for 14, 16, 18 etc. I have just cut out my first pattern and it's too small! So I've wasted some lovely material! Help please

Whenever you buy a pattern it will come with a sizing chart. Pattern sizing does not usually correspond to off the rack dress sizes, which vary between stores and also between countries. You need to take your measurements and compare them to the sizing chart in the pattern, grade between sizes if needed and also double check the flat pattern measurements against your own.
My patterns come with letters for sizing, such as size A to F so there can be no confusion with ready to wear dress sizes.
