    One of my favorite ones! This looks like you bought It in a fancy store!

    Such an unusual and different design, I used a brush-stroke striped linen which accentuated the V-line of the shoulder straps beautifully. I made this in size 16 D cup, the pattern fit was perfect and, while it looks like an intricate design, it was surprisingly easy to sew. Really pleased with the result.

  3. (verified owner)

    classic…beautifully drafted

  4. Taryn (verified owner)

    A beautiful dress. Love the effect and coverage of the wide straps. This is definitely going to be one of my favourites this summer

  5. Jeanine (verified owner)

    very good pattern!

  6. Cindy (verified owner)

    Love the cup sizing option!

  7. Hazel (verified owner)

    I made it without the grommets and string and made the v insert a little higher. I’m very pleased with how it turned out.

  8. Kadri (verified owner)

    Oia is unique dress for the summer! I love the front lace detail and pockets of course! Time consuming but not too hard to sew 🙂

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.
