* The sewing pattern used for this top is from Style Arc and must be purchased separately online. It uses Australian sizes, which are about two sizes smaller than US Sizes (for example, Style Arc size 10 is a size 6 in US). There is a conversion chart on the website. The patterns are downloadable, so you must print out and tape the pages together, then cut out the paper pattern pieces.
