It is recommended to consider your own measurements as well as the finished size chart when choosing a size. You can size up to achieve a generous oversized look or down to achieve a more fitted look. The blouse can be either worn out or tucked into bottoms. The dress can be worn either loose at the waist, fitted with the elastic waist included in the pattern, or simply with a belt or waist tie. It is recommended to size down one size for View D.

The pattern is designed for a height of 170cm (5’7”). Adjustments in length can be done through the lengthening or shortening lines through the waist and hip and at the hem. Given it’s relaxed fit this style can be comfortably worn by bust size A through to G.
