Mini, what a wonderfully useful review! especially the last paragraph about tracing the pattern in differnt sizes to get the right fit. I love Kwik sew patterns and I have also found their fit to be consistent. I can almost always blindly trace on SMALL and the finished garment is perfect!

Anne, this is a multisize pattern, so I don't really choose one size or the other. Maybe I wasn't clear in my review. I fit the upper part of the pattern - that is everything above the bust point - according to the size which matches my high bust measurement. In my case, this is a Large. Everything from the bottom of the armhole down to the hem is traced according to my full bust/hip measurement, which matches Kwik Sew's XL.

Mini, I have never sewn with Kwik Sew but have heard some wonderful things about them. Could you tell me: Do you choose your pattern size by your high bust measurement or your bust measurement. Thanks for such a wonderful review.

I have made similar adjustments to KwikSew tops, especially for my mother.
