How to choose your size
As our patterns come ready cut, you should carefully check your size before you order using our measurements table.
Take your measurements carefully, without ease, and compare them with the size chart. For coats, jackets, dresses and blouses, follow the bust measurement. For pants and skirts, follow the hip measurement.
The size chart measurements do not include ease, which is incorporated in the patterns to assure a correct fit.
Control all patterns for length before you cut: dresses, skirts, pants and sleeves.
Yardage indications are for size 46, and may vary for other sizes.
