It is vitally important, when sewing your own clothes, to take accurate measurements of your body, and not rely on the sizing you expect to buy on the high street. For this pattern we have opted to use sizing 1-8, which approximately covers UK sizes 8-24. Measure yourself first to choose the right size for you.
