    I don’t think this is a terrible pattern, but the fit was not great for me. I made a size 8, since I have lots of Style Arc patterns and that always fits. However, this top fit oddly. It is very form-fitting, which I think is fine, but the fabric bunches up under my arms. The neckline is good–I took about 2 inches off the neckband to keep it from being floppy, and that snugged it up pretty well. In my experience, you always need to eyeball the neckband and shorten it if it seems like it is fitting the neckline too exactly. You should have to stretch the neckband a little bit to get it to fit the neckline or it will be floppy, and this depends on how stretchy the fabric is. My bra straps do show, so this style would require a strapless bra. I would try the size 10, but I’m not sure that would fix the armpit bunching issue. I love the neckline, I just wish the top fit me better through the arms. I’ve never had this problem with a pattern before! I may use the sleeves and armscye off another pattern and just redraft that part.

    love the sleeves and body but the neck is so wide that it’s impractical to wear without alterations.

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
