6961 is the pattern

Why does this keep happening to me?!?! :cry:

I bought the smaller pattern range based on the finished bust measurement on the envelope.

I am cutting the pattern out and then I see that the size 14 does NOT have a 44" finished bust but rather it has a 38" finished bust. I guess I need to measure the actual pattern pieces to know what's the real story but still. Very annoying.

Rule #1, Always measure the pattern. Never trust the envelope or the measurements printed on the pattern.

The amounts on the envelope are SUPPOSED to be finished measurements and the amounts by the circle are SUPPOSED to be the bust measurements for the sizes listed. You didn't mention what the pattern actually measured. What is it? This information is good for those wanting to make the pattern. (well, for you too )

I didn't measure it yet. I was too frustrated to think of that at that point. I made something else! Lol!!!!

I'll check it tomorrow.

WOW! Six inch difference? This is more than just an inconvenience. I honestly have never seen anything like this. Have you notified McCalls?

That is extremely annoying. The rule might be to measure the pattern, but you can't measure a pattern in the store to determine what size to buy. grrrrrr

I think the pattern company owes you a free pattern.
Send them an e-mail and see what happens!
