Illawong tops are based on a 70s smock top pattern. They are a relaxed fit, meaning that you'll generally be able to fit into a couple of sizes. If your measurements fall in between sizes, I'd recommend sizing down.

Created from a vintage rainbow brite poly cotton sheet (yoke only) and light poly cotton gingham (body and sleeves). The vintage fabric does show signs of fade and wear, as you'd expect from fabric that's around 30 years old.

Measurements taken with top laying flat:
Bust (armpit to armpit): 61cm
Length (shoulder to hem): 62cm

To suit bust size of approximately 44 inches.

The best way is to check the laying flat measurements against a similar top in your wardrobe (one without stretch).
