How to measure:
All my patterns are created after these body measurements. I recommend to always make a mock up before making the garment in final fabric since no body shape is the same and all fabric behaves differently.
My patterns are based on a body that measures 170cm / 5ft 7". If you are taller or shorter than this I recommend adjusting the length of the pattern pieces at the adjustment lines. To do so cut at the indicated adjustment lines and either spread them apart to lengthen the pattern or overlap them to shorten it.
To determine your size: measure around the largest part of your bust, the narrowest part of your waist and the widest part of your hips.
If you are between sizes I recommend to size up and take the garment in on the areas where the fit is a little loose. If you fit into different size categories, for example being one size on the hips and another on the waist, you can connect the different pattern lines of the sizes you need and make a custom size for you.
