What You’ll Need
Any lightweight woven fabric. Use rayon, viscose or crepe for a very floaty top. Another option is cotton lawn for a breathable top that will be easier to sew with than the drapier fabrics.
Fabric requirements for 55″/1.4m wide fabric:
(See size chart in image gallery above)
Ava – Dee: You will need 1m (1.1 yds)
Eve – Hana: You will need 1.5m (1.6yds)
Ivy – Mia: You will need 1.6m (1.7 yards)
Extra fabric needed if you want to do a contrast ruffle:

Sizes in pattern
31″ – 55″
Use your High Bust to get the best fit across your neckline and shoulders. To get your High Bust measurement, measure around your body, directly under your underarms.
Fitting tips for larger busts/cup sizes: You would then do a Full Bust Adjustment (FBA) only if your full bust measurement is in a higher size category to your high bust.
