This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). Choose the B-cup pattern for sizes 0 – 22 or the D-cup pattern for sizes 12 – 34. What is Copy Shop?

Suggested fabrics: Light to medium weight woven fabrics with no stretch. Linen, cotton (lawn, poplin, voile, seersucker, shirting, double gauze, crinkle cotton), Tencel twill, silk, and rayon/viscose challis or poplin will work well. Structured fabric like crisp cotton lawn will have more dramatic volume and drapier fabrics like rayon challis will have more fluid movement.

Fabric requirements: Allow extra fabric for pattern/print matching with large scale prints.
