    Suggested Fabrics

    Primary Fabric: Use lightweight to medium weight woven fabric. Twill, broadcloth, chambray, and linen are great choices. Do not use fabric narrower than 56" (142 cm); the front and back skirts are too wide to be cut on narrower fabric.

    Lining: Use lightweight, stable woven fabric such as cotton. The bodice is not lined, but the lining is used for the pockets.

    Interfacing: Use lightweight to medium weight fusible woven or weft insertion interfacing.

    Notions

    • Nine 1/2" (1.25 cm) buttons or snaps
    • 47" (120 cm) of 1/2" (1.25 cm)-wide fusible stay tape (or cut your own on straight grain)

    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.
    • Because of the design of the full skirt, you will not need to blend sizes for the skirt. Choose the same size for your hip as for your waist.
    • It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust and waist. See “Blend Sizes” in instructions for details.
    • 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.
