PATTERN DESCRIPTION
SIZING

Ailsa's bodice is worked in three pieces and seamed together before picking up stitches along its lower border and working the skirt from there down...as far as you want to go! The cables & lace lower body of the garment increases as it goes. Rib cage measurement (just below the bust) is the main reference point, allowing this top to flatter any woman's shape.

XS (S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, 6X)
