Material

Fabric Use light to medium light-weight knit fabric with at least 75% four-way stretch. Jersey, matte jersey, interlock and very-light weight French terry are great choices. If you use fabric with less stretch, you may choose a larger size. Conversely, if you use fabric with more stretch, you may choose a smaller size. The same fabric is used to line the bodice. However, if your knit fabric is on the heavier side, you may choose to line the bodice with a lighter-weight knit fabric. Jersey and tricot are great choices.

    I’m an adventurous beginner with a serger I don’t have too much experience on and a new intermediate sewing machine. Of the few garments I’ve sewn now, this is by far the best. I have a short torso, and with a petite adjustment to the neck and waist area, I was able to get a perfect fit! The bust is usually a tricky area for me, but I used the ITS measurements and I didn’t need to add or change anything to accommodate my 34D bust (used size 14). I’m going to use the bodice again over a 1yd skirt to make a second dress. After that, I think I’ll use the pattern a 3rd time with a winter-weight material and long sleeves. Oh, and I love the pockets too!

How to choose your size

  1. Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table, 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
  5. 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.
