For dry-clean garments, use Ambiance lining, polyester lining, China silk or charmeuse. Lining fabric is for pocket bags. Interfacing: Use lightweight woven or weft-insertion interfacing.

    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 in between sizes, choose the smaller size.
    • It's OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. See 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.
