Chalk and Notch - Waterfall Blouse and Dress
This product is currently sold out.
The Waterfall Raglan is a swing shape knit top or dress. There are three views: a cropped top, a ruffle top, and a ruffle dress. The sleeve has a slim fit with three length options: short, 3/4, and long sleeve.
Suggested fabrics: Cotton jersey, cotton lycra, rayon jersey, rayon french terry, rib knit. This style is designed for a light weight to medium weight 75% – 100% stretch knit fabric with nice drape and good recovery. The shape of this style is relaxed and may look boxy when sewn with a thicker knit fabric. If your fabric has less than 75% stretch or less than 90% recovery, it’s recommended to use rib fabric for the neckband.
Fabric requirements: Minimum fabric required is listed. If you think you will need more for shrinkage, directional print, pattern matching or print repeat, please purchase accordingly.

Sizing: US 0 – 30 (approx. UK 8 – 30) with A/B and C/D cups. Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.
Use the high bust and full bust measurements to determine your size. If you fall between sizes, size down. It is always recommended to sew a test garment to confirm fit.
This pattern includes two bust cup options, and the cup size is determined by calculating the difference between the high and full bust. If the difference between your high bust and full bust is between 0” and 2” (5 cm) use the A/B cup. If the difference is between 2” (5 cm) and 4” (10 cm) use the C/D cup. If you have more than a 4” (10 cm) difference, you may need a full bust adjustment.
Notions: Optional: 3/4″ (2 cm) wide fusible hem tape; tricot fusible or clear elastic to stabilise the seams.
