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, size down. 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.
