    Choosing your Size

    • Determine your cup size. You can use the cup size you typically wear.
    • 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 bigger size.
    • Compare your hip circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your hip. 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. See “Blend Sizes” in the instructions for details.
    • If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the bodice and/or the skirt (see “Lengthen/Shorten” in the instructions).
    • 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.
