Perfect as a basic to throw on with any ensemble, or a little sweeter with the ruffle sleeves.

Sizing: 1 – 8 (approx. UK 4 – 20, based on our standardised size chart) or 6 – 14 (approx. UK 18 – 36, based on our standardised size chart). Please also check the designer’s size charts and finished garment measurements.

Note: If you fit into both size ranges and are unsure which to purchase, the 6 – 14 size range has been drafted for a larger bust cup and a curvier figure. The 1 – 8 size range is based on a dressmaker’s B cup and a 5’3″ – 5’7″ height. The 6 – 14 size range is based on a dressmaker’s D cup and a 5’3″ – 5’8″ height. To determine your dressmaker’s cup size, measure your full bust and upper bust and subtract. Each 2.5 cm (1″) difference equates to one cup size.

Notions: Matching thread.
