All seam allowances are included in the pattern.
The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.
The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. If you prefer a ready-to-cut pattern, try the pdf version as pieces do not overlap with each other.
Size 36 to 46. See sizing guide below.
1 top + 3 bottoms = 7 garments – We love this kind of math!

For versions E, F & G, we have broken down the yardages for the bodice and for the bottom of the garment. Calculate the total yardage for versions E, F & G by adding the fabric required for the bodice and the bottom of the garment in your size.
It isn’t possible to use a 55″ (140cm) wide fabric for a full circle skirt in sizes 46 to 52. Therefore, the skirt for those sizes features a lovely volume but isn’t a full circle skirt.
