Suggested fabrics: Main: Lightweight to medium weight woven fabric. Twill, broadcloth, chambray, and linen are great choices. Do not use fabric narrower than 142 cm (56″) as the front and back skirts are too wide to be cut on narrower fabric. // Lining: Lightweight, stable woven fabric such as cotton. The bodice is not lined, but the lining is used for the pockets.
Fabric requirements: Main (142 cm wide fabric – not suitable for narrower fabrics): Cap sleeve option, 2.4 – 2.6 m (2 5/8 – 2 7/8 yd) / Flare sleeve option, 2.6 – 2.9 m (2 7/8 – 3 1/8 yd) // Lining (115 cm wide fabric): 40 cm (3/8 yd).
Sizing: US 00 – 20 (approx. UK 8 – 22). Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.
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: Lightweight to medium weight fusible woven or weft insertion interfacing; nine 1.25 cm (1/2″) buttons or snaps; 120 cm (47″) of 1.25 cm (1/2″)-wide fusible stay tape (or cut your own on straight grain).
PDF pattern includes: Digital pattern compatible with both US letter and A4 paper sizes; A0 (copy shop) file; step-by-step illustrated instructions. The print-at-home pattern is a layered PDF, so you can select your size before printing.
