Sizing: US 0 – 30 (approx. UK 8 – 30, based on our standardised size chart). Please also check the designer’s size chart and finished garment measurements.

Use the waist and hip measurements to determine your size. If sewing View A or B and your measurements fall between sizes, size up and adjust the fit as needed. If sewing View C, the waist can be adjusted with elastic and it’s recommended to choose a size based on your hips. It is not recommended to blend to a smaller waist size when sewing View C, as the skirt needs to pull over the hips.
