Suggested fabrics: Challis, chambray, double gauze, lawn, linen, voile. This style is designed for a light to medium weight woven. A lighter weight fabric will fall closer to the body, and a medium weight fabric will maintain more of a bubble structure.

Fabric requirements: A minimum fabric width of 54″ (137 cm) is required for sizes 26-30. Minimum fabric required is listed. If you think you will need more for shrinkage, directional print, pattern matching or print repeat, please purchase accordingly.

44″ (112 cm) wide fabric (sizes 0-24 only): 1 1/2 – 2 yd (1.4 – 1.8 m).

54″ (137 cm) wide fabric: 1 1/2 – 2 yd (1.4 – 1.8 m).

Sizing: US 0 – 30 (approx. UK 8 – 30, based on our standardised size chart) with A/B and C/D bust cup options. Please also check the designer’s size chart and finished garment measurements.

Use the high bust and full bust measurements to determine your size. If you fall between sizes, you can size down due to the ease included. It is always recommended to sew a test garment to confirm fit.

This pattern includes two bust cup options, and the cup size is determined by calculating the difference between the high and full bust. If the difference between your high bust and full bust is between 0″ and 2″ (5 cm) use the A/B cup. If the difference is between 2″ (5 cm) and 4″ (10 cm) use the C/D cup. If you have more than a 4″ (10 cm) difference, you may need a full bust adjustment.

Notions: 1/4 yd (0.25 m) of tricot fusible interfacing; 1/4″ (0.6 cm) wide elastic (see chart for length).

PDF pattern includes: Step-by-step illustrated instructions; US letter/A4 print-at-home pattern (48 pages); US copy shop pattern (36″ x 95″); A0 copy shop pattern (2 sheets) // Layers: Yes // Projector file: Yes.
