Size Chart

Carey Top Body and Finished Garment Measurements

Choosing Your Size

  1. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your waist best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  2. Compare your fullest hip measurements to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. It’s OK to use different sizes for the waist and hip. All you have to do is print the sizes that you need (see “Printing Instructions” and “Blend Sizes” in the instructions), and blend the lines from one size to the next from the waist to the hip.
  4. The bust measurement is not used to determine your size. For this design, the bust area is integrated into the sleeve and therefore is not a defined area.

I highly recommend that you check your fit by making a test garment with inexpensive fabrics that have similar weight as your final garment fabrics.

Material

Primary fabric Use a very light-weight soft woven fabric or knit fabric with drape. Rayon challis, voile, batiste, georgette, charmeuse and jersey are great choices. Do not use quilting cotton or heavier weight fabrics.

Contrast Fabric A contrast fabric is used for the shoulder panels. You could use the same fabric as the primary fabric, or use a similar quality light-weight woven fabric. Rayon challis, voile, batiste, georgette, charmeuse and jersey are great choices. You could use a semi-transparent fabric to add interest.

Other Materials

  • 3.5 yards (320 cm) of purchased 1/4” (0.6 cm) ribbon, twill tape or cording can be used as drawstrings instead of making your own

Tools

  • A small safety pin
  • A 1/2” (12 mm) bias tape maker (optional) or a loop turner (optional)

Fabric Requirements

Most natural fibers shrink in the wash; be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk. Do not use fabric narrower than 54” (135 cm) as the primary fabric; it is not wide enough to accommodate the pattern pieces.
