Sizes 00 – 20 have A, B, C, D and DD cups. Sizes 22 – 40 have B, C, D and DD cups.

A note from the designer about bust cup options: To determine your cup size, subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 1″ (2.5 cm), use A cup; 2″ (5 cm), use B cup; 3″ (7.5 cm), use C cup; 4″ (10 cm), use D cup; 5″ (12.5 cm), use DD cup.

Notions: Three sets of toggle fasteners; 1/2″ (12.7 mm)-wide piping bias tape OR 1/2″ (12.7 mm)-wide double-fold bias tape, 4.5 yd (4 m) for sizes 00-10, 5 yd (4.5 m) for sizes 12-20, 6 yd (5.5 m) for sizes 22-40. Note if you choose to not line your vest, you can only use double-fold bias tape (not piping bias tape) to finish the edges.
