Choosing your Size
- Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your bust. If your cup size is D or larger, you may wish to go down one size. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size. This should be the size you use for the entire garment.
- Because of the swing silhouette, the waist and hip of the garment will be very relaxed with plenty of ease. But to be safe, check the waist and hip measurements in the “Finished Garment Measurements” table and be sure that your waist and hip can be fitted in the size chosen. If not, you can blend to a larger size at the waist and hip.
- 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 fabrics that have similar weight and stretch as your final garment fabrics.
Average rating: (5 of 5) based on 2 reviewsBellavista topReviewed by Hilary Calder (Verified Buyer) on 09/17/2019I love this pattern. Have made three. I altered the first one to shorten shoulder width and took some in on the sides. For the second and third ones I made a smaller size and added 5 cm to length. I found the pattern expensive as getting the digital pattern printed out on large paper cost quite a bit. I live in New Zealand.1 of 1 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Love this topReviewed by Lori (Verified Buyer) on 03/09/2018I am 6' tall, big busted, and this pattern is so wonderful.
