Size Chart

Paro Cardigan PDF Sewing Pattern Body Measurements

Choosing 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. Due to the design of the garment (a flared bottom), the hip measurement is likely to fit everyone. For the hips, use the same size as the waist.
  4. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust and waist. See “Blend Sizes” in the instructions for details.
  5. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the bodice (see “Lengthen/Shorten” in the instructions) in order for the waistband to sit at your natural waist.

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.

Material

Primary Fabric Use medium-weight knit fabric with 10% to 25% stretch as well as great drape and recovery. Sweater knit and jersey are great choices. Choose a size smaller if your fabric has more than 25% stretch.

Contrast Fabric Optionally, you can use a contrast fabric for the waistband and band. Choose a fabric similar in weight and stretch as the primary fabric. A contrast fabric is not necessary if you want to use only one fabric for the garment.

Interfacing Four (4) pieces of 2” x 2” (5 cm x 5 cm) lightweight knit or tricot fusible interfacing if a button is used. No pattern pieces are available.

Other Materials

  • 12” (30 cm) of 3/8” or 1/2” (1 cm or 1.25 cm)-wide straight fusible stay tape (or you may cut your own using light-weight woven fusible interfacing on the straight grain)
  • One (1) 1” (2.5 cm) button (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.

    Another excellent well-drafted pattern with very clear instructions from Itch-to-Stitch. The style with its fitted waist is very flattering as the pattern description promises. I love the way the back looks. The sleeves are also nice and long (I actually shortened them by an inch). The neck and shoulders fit very well and the wider-than-usual front band brings a touch of class. The cardigan looks good both open and buttoned up. Made mine in a lightweight pale-grey jersey knit and it looks great with jeans. I think it would also work really well with a pencil skirt. It’s the kind of piece you can dress up or down and in my climate (Canada) just the sort of cosy staple you want in your closet.
