1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Sizing you can count on-when using patterns on: July 08, 2006 11:52:48 AM
Hello Crafty Divas. This is especially for the sewing novices. I read this in an article and wanted to share it with you.
"Pattern sizes and RTW sizes aren't the same. Your pattern size will be two or more sizes larger than your usual RTW size. A garment that fits properly is what is most important, not the number on an envelope. RTW manufacturers will often label items will smaller sizes to increase sales. With patterns, the measurements are all laid out on the envelope".
So when shopping for a pattern, ask yourself what really matters; the number on the envelope or how fabulous you'll look in your creation, no matter what your size may be? Wink
