If your measurements fall into one size on the body measurements chart, that is your size. Take a look at the size key on the pattern sheets and find the corresponding size line.

Even in the summer, it was nice to come here to warm up and dry off after our wet, rainy visit to the Fairy Pools. Circle your measurements on the ‘Body Measurements’ chart in the pattern instructions. If your measurement falls between a size (for example, if your bust is 35in rather than 34in or 36in), it’s usually better to choose the larger size as you can take it in more easily than you can let it out.

Therefore, it is a huge advantage to rent a car with a built-in navigation service. This helped get us from point to point when our cellphones were useless. We used O2 but another popular carrier is Vodafone. Update in 2022: According to this article, there may now be 4G in the Isle of Skye.I’ve been trying to veer away from doing too many pattern tests and brand projects but every now and then there’s one I can’t resist! I liked the simple idea and shape behind the dress and I never feel like I can have too many summer dresses!
