Fabric requirements: 

View A

6 – 20 size range: 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: 3 m (3.25 yd).

16 – 30 size range: 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: 3.75 m (4.25 yd).

View B

6 – 20 size range: 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: Main, 1.75 m (2 yd) // Contrast, 1.25 m (1.5 yd).

16 – 30 size range (sizes 16 – 22): 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: Main, 1.75 m (2 yd) // Contrast, 1.25 m (1.5 yd).

16 – 30 size range (sizes 24 – 30): 150 cm (60″) wide fabric: Main, 2.5 m (2.75 yd) // Contrast, 1.25 m (1.5 yd).

Sizing: UK 6 – 20 with a B cup or UK 16 – 30 with a D cup. Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.

The two size ranges are based on different body proportions and bust cup sizes, but for the same height of 5’6″ (167 cm). The 6 – 20 size range is drafted for a sewists’ B cup, which means a difference of 5 cm (2″) between your high bust and full bust measurements. The 16 – 30 size range is drafted for a sewists’ D cup, which means a difference of 10 cm (4″) between your high bust and full bust measurements.

For this pattern, choose the pattern size for which the Bust measurement in the table is nearest to your full bust measurement, and if that is a size between 16 and 20 (inclusive), use your high bust measurement to select the appropriate size range to purchase.

Note: The PDF pattern includes bonus files for sizes 16 – 20 (inclusive). You will receive sizes 16 – 20 from the other size range as well. However, this bonus will not be included in your print out if you order copy shop printing (only your chosen size range/bust cup will be printed). This bonus is also not included in the paper pattern.

Notions: 1.5 m (1.75 yd) of 90 cm (35″) wide lightweight or medium weight fusible interfacing; small buttons, 1-1.2 cm (3/8″-1/2″) diameter, 10 for size range 6-20 or 11 for size range 16-30 // View B only: One pair of 3.8 cm (1 1/2″) D-rings for the belt.

PDF pattern includes: Instructions; A4/US letter print-at-home pattern (40 pages for sizes 6-20, 52 pages for sizes 16-30); A0 copy shop pattern (3 sheets for sizes 6-20, 4 sheets for sizes 16-30). This pattern has layers so you can print just the size(s) you need.
