    Suggested Fabrics

    Primary fabric: Use lightweight to medium weight knit fabric with 50% to 60% stretch and very good recovery. Rayon spandex (with 6% or more spandex content) and double-brushed poly are good choices.

    Lining: Use lightweight knit fabric with 50% to 60% stretch and very good recovery. Swimsuit lining is a great choice. It is acceptable to use the same fabric as the primary fabric.

    Notions

    Choosing your Size

    • 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.
    • After determining the cup size, compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Using the corresponding row for your cup, choose the size that best fits your bust. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
    • Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
    • Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
    • It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
    • If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
    • It is highly recommended that you check your fit by making a test garment with inexpensive fabric that has similar weight as your final garment fabric.
