For more size info, please see sizing table. It's the last of the images. The stretchier your fabric, the more generous the fit will appear. If you're sewing a super soft & stretchy material you may want to err on the smaller size. So for example if you're normally a size 12, choose size S (UK 10-12) for super stretchy materials. On the other hand, if your material is not that stretchy, go for size M (UK 12-14).
Fabric requirements, stretchy jerseys/lycra fabrics only (min. fabric width 140 cm): (amount in brackets is for using the same material for main top & trims) • 3XS - XS: 0.65m (0.8m) • S-XL: 0.7m (0.85m) • XXL-3XL: 0.75m (0.9m)
Trims Fabric (min width 1m): • All sizes: 15 cm
Rib knit jersey gives the best result. Alternatively you could also cut the trims out of the same fabric as the top, especially if using a lycra.
•Double sided fusible hem tape •Jersey needle •Twin needle
