    Love this pinafore dress and also the Fisherman’s top in this month’s Making too! Just wondering what bust sizes you’re considering as SML before I cut into some fabric. As a curvy 16, I’m keen not to get cutting to find that the patterns = 8, 10 and 12 !! Thank you!

    • Hi Helen, thanks for getting in touch. We went with small 34″ bust, medium 38″ and large 42″. The fisherman’s top is the same. A tip if you make the fisherman’s top, try it on before adding the binding around the neck and make the sleeve darts bigger if it isn’t fitting snugly. let me know how you get on! Best wishes, Suzanne
