Hey Smiley

I'm looking to buy some patterns online from McCall's, but I'm in the UK and I'm not sure what size to order. Does anyone know what a UK size 10 converts to in the States?

In theory Uk sizes are 1 bigger....so a UK 10 should be a US 8....I say in theory because a) sizing is wildly different even between depatments in the same store, never mind between different stores, and b) pattern sizing has a fairly tenuous link to 'real' sizing....I'd look on the back of the pattern envelope & go by what seems to be your nearest body measurements.

Ah okay, that makes sense.

Thanks so much, Dolores!
