  1. Miss LC Thomas (verified owner)

    Very pleased with your service

  2. Anne (verified owner)

    I used a crepe from Joann’s. I lined the shoulders to give them a better finish. Pleased with the outcome.

  3. Heike (verified owner)

    Good fit, I only needed to shorten it by 1 inch. The placket was a little bit tricky. But after carefully attention to the tutorial it worked out. The 2nd Blouse will be better :-))))))

  4. Susan (verified owner)

    I saw the pattern on Karina’s utube, lifting pins and needles. I really liked the style and wanted to make it for the summer. The price of the pattern and the inclusive size range is very good.

  5. Sabine (verified owner)

    Die Paßform ist hervorragend. Ich bin wie immer sehr zufrieden.

  6. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Love your styles. Would love some interesting skirts.

  7. Holly (verified owner)

    This is one of my new favorite patterns! Instructions are clear as all Itch to Stitch patterns are, this shirt is comfy and you can dress it up or down depending on the fabric you choose.

How to choose your size

  1. Determine your cup size—subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 1″ (2.5 cm), use A cup; 2″ (5 cm), use B cup; 3″ (7.5 cm), use C cup; 4″ (10 cm), use D cup; 5″ (12.5 cm), use DD cup.
  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 smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  4. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) 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.
  5. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
  6. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
