Choosing Your Size

To help choose the right size, you will need to measure your bust, waist and hip. 
Use a tape measure over your underwear or form fitting clothing and compare your body measurements with those on your size chart, choosing the size that closest matches your measurements. If you do not have a dressmaker's measuring tape (one that is soft and can hug your body), you can use a piece of string to place around your body, mark the length and then spread the string out on a long ruler. 
The chart below indicates where to measure your body: 
Use the diagram above to help you measure on the right spots. 
BUST: Measure around the back, under the arms and across the fullest part of the bust. The tape measure should be flat against the figure, straight across the back and not too tight. 
WAIST: Measure around the waist, with the tape measure flat against the figure and snug but not too tight. 
HIPS: Measure over the fullest part of the hips, usually 21-23 cm / 8-9" down from the waist. The fullest part of the hip maybe higher or lower depending on the individual figure. 
Note the measurements in the first section of the size chart above are in centimetres (metric) and the second section is in inches (imperial). 
The size chart indicates the pattern size closest to your body shape.
