    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 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. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
    • If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
    • 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.

    Easy and elegant
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 08/26/2021
    I bought this pattern with a particular project in mind. A beautiful Nano Iro print was cut crosswise so that I had a yellow top with beautiful white/grey patterned edges on the top itself and the sleeves. Very successful. I chose this pattern because it has interesting but not voluminous sleeves. The emphasis at the top of the sleeve suits my shape, rather than a lot of volume somewhere round my bust or my middle. A great pattern which I will use again.
