Sizes in pattern
Bust: 31″, 33″, 35″, 37″, 39″, 41″, 43″
Fitting tips for larger busts: If your Full Bust (the measurement around the largest part of your chest) is more than 2.5″ larger than your High Bust, then your High Bust should be used to get the best overall fit across your neckline and shoulders. To get your High Bust measurement, run the tape measure around your body, directly under your underarms. You would then do a “Full Bust Adjustment (FBA)” to properly fit your chest.
What You’ll Need
Main fabric: French terry, sweatshirt, or any medium weight knit material with a bit of stretch.
Contrast fabric: (so many options!) Jersey, t-shirt material, lightweight french terry, rib knit, ponte roma, double knit. It’s also a great opportunity to stash bust and use up some bits left over from previous projects! You can use the same material as the main fabric, however, the cuffs will have a closer fit.
Fabric requirements (for 1.5m / 60″ fabric):
Ava – Cara (31″ – 35″ / see size chart image)
Main: 1.5m (1.64 yards)
Contrast 0.6m (0.66 yards)

– 50cm x 14cm fusible interfacing
– 3 buttons for the cowl (Example uses 19mm Prym cover buttons)

How to Use PDF Sewing Patterns
A PDF pattern lets you print the pattern yourself (use A4/US Letter for this) or send to a copy shop(A0 size).
First of all, for print at home options, print only page 1 and check the box measures 10cm x 10cm. When you print the pattern, print at 100% (make sure it isn’t scaling). If this measurement is correct you can print the remaining pages. Assemble by cutting along the dotted lines & tape the pages together.
If you send your file to a copy shop for an A0 version they will print it for you on a large piece of paper similar to if you had bought the paper pattern.
As soon as you’ve purchased the PDF pattern you will receive an email with the link to your PDFs and the instructions.
