    AU Size 6-22 = Hip/Seat from 85cm - 129cm (33.5" - 50.5")

    This pattern is sized using Australian sizing. If you're from another country, the sizing numbers may differ slightly from what you are used to. For example, AU Size 6 = (approximately) US Size 2.

    To determine size, measure around the hip/seat (20cm or 8" down from the natural waist). The tape measure should be firm but not tight. Do not measure over clothing.

    See the pattern for a more detailed outline on choosing the right size for your body.

    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.

    Both 2-way & 4-way stretches are suitable for the Starlight Knit Skirt. *However, it is recommended that you use a 4-way stretch for the waistband. See the pattern for detailed fabric information.

    • 4-ways Stretch Knits - Ponte, Cotton Lycra, Polyester Elastane Jersey, Swimwear Spandex, Rayon Elastane Knits, ITY Jersey, Double Brush Polyester. 
    • 2-way Stretch Knits* - Ponte, Polyester Knits, Polyester Jacquard, Rayon Knits.
