Your Unique Fit: How To Measure

When starting our independent sewing pattern company, we decided that with a global reach it was best to take out the guesswork from ‘traditional’ size numbers.  These differ between countries and are confusing at best, especially from brand to brand in RTW clothing.  

We have thoughtfully created our sizing chart using a letter system that works with your unique body measurements.

CA-CM (Curve) is graded from the CE measurements and fitted on CE/CF. We then test our pattern on CB measurements.

A-J is graded from the E measurements & cross-tested on F/G.

If you are across different measurements at your bust, waist or hip, you can choose to print multiple layers of our pattern & grade between for a customised fit.

The style, description and final garment measurements should always be taken into consideration when choosing your fit, as there is an ease amount built into the pattern.
