Finished Garment Measurements
Grrr... not even on the pattern tissue!

It is frustrating enough that BMV no longer print garment measurements on the pattern envelope, but several of my latest purchases don't even have the measurements on the pattern tissue. This is coupled with 'drawing only' views on the front cover and very skimpy descriptions of the garment on the envelope. I am frustrated!

I've been running into the same thing, Steffie - and complaining to anyone who will listen. I LOVE the convenience of the finished measurements on the envelope. They help me decide which size pattern to buy and use, whether or not a skirt is as full as I want, whether or not I can shorten or should lengthen when I cut. BMV is rapidly turning me into a dedicated user of just about any other pattern brand.

If they aren't going to include measurements, there should at least be a description that gives a vague idea as to the amount of design ease in the pattern.

Hrmph!
