Tip 618: It Helps to Know the Size StandardsBy DianeSev on 11/18/11 3:59 PM


I discovered that the "Big Four" U.S. pattern companies have collaborated to produce a brochure, Do You Really Know Your Pattern Size; it's designed to help home sewers achieve a better fit using Simplicity, Vogue, Butterick and McCall's patterns. You can view it online at their individual Web sites and may find it also at a local fabric store. It includes a lot of detailed information and I was pleased to see it tells you about "full bust vs. high bust."

http://www.simplicity.com/images/downloadablePDF/0159_FIT_GUIDE_English.pdf I've used this with sewing students who can't understand why a size 18 in the store isn't a size 18 pattern... It is also a handy record, as there are places to write down your actual measurements, plus the pattern size you should select for various types of garments.
