Use knit fabric with about 75% horizontal and vertical stretch as well as good recovery. Jersey, interlock, double-brushed poly, ITY and French terry are good choices. Keep in mind knit fabric with more stretch and drape results in a more relaxed and longer fit, and vice versa.

Choosing your Size
- Determine if you should use the regular bust front pieces or the full-bust front pieces—subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 3″ (7.5 cm) or less, then use the regular bust front; if the rounded different is more than 3″ (7.5 cm), use the full bust front.
- Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Using the corresponding row for your bust (regular bust or full bust), 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 are making view B or C, 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. If you are making view A, do not use your hip measurement; use the peplum that is the same size as your waist.
- It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip (if making view B or C).
- 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.
