The balloon sleeves of this simple top are the only detail that it requires to stand out – less is more! The full sleeves are gathered with a tie which is threaded through a buttonhole alternatively you can omit this buttonhole and insert elastic instead. The Edie has a dropped shoulder you could also extend the top into a dress ? we found that the sleeves looked better a little shorter for a dress version. Depending on the dress length you require we?d suggest adding about 60cm. All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated. Skill level ? intermediate. We would suggest using lighter weight woven fabrics linen and linen blends poplin hemp and hemp blends cotton chambray Indian handweaves and block prints tencel and tencel blends. The more structured the fabric the more sculptural your top will look.You will need: 1 x Matching thread Fabric Requirements with or without nap (in metres) Top 6 – 10 12 – 14 16 – 18 110cm wide 2.7M 2.75M 2.85M 120cm wide 2.4M 2.6M 2.7M 140cm wide 1.9M 1.9M 2.25M 150cm wide 1.75M 1.8M 1.85M Dress 6 – 10 12 – 14 16 – 18 110cm wide 3.95M 4M 4.1M 120cm wide 3.65M 3.85M 3.95M 140cm wide 3.5M 3.55M 3.8M 150cm wide 3.5M 3.55M 3.6M Finished Measurements (in cm) 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 Bust 101 105 109 114 119 124 129 Top Length (taken from top of front shoulder) 52 52.5 53 53.5 54 54.5 55 Dress Length (taken from top of front shoulder) 116 116.5 117 117.5 118 118.5 119 Sleeve length 47 47 47 47 47 47 47 UK Sizing Size 6 Size 8 Size 10 Size 12 Size 14 Size 16 Size 18 Waist 61cm/24″ 65cm/25.5″ 69cm/27″ 74cm/29″ 79cm/31″ 84cm/33″ 89cm/35″ Hips 86cm/34″ 90cm/35.5″ 94cm/37″ 99cm/38.75″ 104cm/41″ 109cm/43″ 114cm/44″ Bust 78cm/30.75″ 82cm/32.25″ 86cm/33.75″ 91cm/35.75″ 96cm/37.75″ 100cm/39.25″ 106cm/41.75″
