Dressmaking sizes are based on our body measurements and is very different from the standard clothing store size. Whilst you may normally be a size 6 in a store, your measurements could mean that you are a size 8 in our patterns. Because of this it is really important to take your measurements and compare them to our size chart (below) before choosing a pattern size. Our sizing is separated by female and male body type.

If you find your measurements are in between sizings, follow your hip measurement to ensure fit around the widest part of your body.

If you find your measurements are not displayed, for example 31″ waist 37″ hips, you would fit a unisex S/38.
