Choosing Your Size

  1. Determine your cup size. You can use the cup size you typically wear.
  2. After determining the cup size, compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Using the corresponding row for your cup, choose the size that best fits your bust. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the bigger size.
  4. Compare your hip circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your hip. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  5. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. See “Blend Sizes” in the instructions for details.
  6. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the bodice and/or the skirt (see “Lengthen/Shorten” in the instructions).

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

    I was impressed with the fit of the garment. Not having made a garment with cup sizes included in pattern pieces before this made the fit a pleasure to sew. Instructions included made it relatively easy to sew, having a different method of sewing on the collar made it easier to understand, the finished detail was definately worth the effort. Options included make this a versatile pattern, choosing the right fabric you can wear this garment from a more formal occasion to casual wear.
