SIZING:

SIZE RANGE: 6-24 (Australian Size 6 = approximately US Size 2)

SIZE CHART: Click here to see the size chart (PDF)

To determine size, first measure around the UPPER BUST. This is measured above the bust, under the arms. I recommend this is done braless so that your bra doesn't push your bust up as this will effect sizing. The tape measure should be firm but not tight. See pattern for more details about choosing your size. 

 
SKILL LEVEL: Easy

  

FABRIC & TRIMS:

FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: Click here to see the fabric requirements chart (PDF)

The following table outlines fabric requirements based on 135cm (53") fabric.

Please note: (1) The estimates below do not include directional fabrics. I recommend you cut out the pattern & lay the pieces down on a flat surface to help estimate fabric needs for directional fabric. (2) If you are sewing with rayon, remember to allow for shrinkage & buy a little extra.  (3) Also it’s wise to pre-wash your fabrics, in particular rayon.

SUGGESTED FABRIC: Woven Fabrics: rayon, georgette, chiffon, crepe, lace (must have drape). Knit Fabrics: sweater knit, stretch lace, merino wool jersey, french terry, stretch velvet (velour), ponte (must have drape) viscose/rayon elastane, modal elastane.  

This design works best in a fabric with fluidity & drape. Although designed for woven fabrics, both woven & stretch fabrics are suitable for this pattern.

NOT SUITABLE: Quilting cotton, sateen & stiff heavier fabrics like denim would not be suitable because they have no drape.  These fabrics tend to add bulk in designs like this. 

I personally would be hesitant to use any cotton at all. It tends to stick to your clothing underneath which is not particularly flattering in this design.
