@T-Lee, have you tried this pattern before? I agree that it’s weird that they do not list a waist measurement, but with maxi dresses, they’re usually very flow-y past the bottom of the bust and the fit of the bust area may be the most crucial part. (If it’s fitted to the waistline area, you might want to contact the pattern company and see if this is an accidental omission.) I don’t know what pattern you selected but a size 16 might be doable without alterations just based on the style of the dress and with built in design ease. You can always do a basted muslin just to see if you do need to do alterations and it’ll should give you a better idea before using more expensive fabric.
