Choosing your 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. For the Handkerchief option, you don’t need to take into account the hip measurement.
- It’s OK to use different sizes. See instructions for details. For the Handkerchief option, there is no need to blend sizes. Use the same size for the hip as the waist.
- If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the top (see instructions for details).
- 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.
