Sizing: We offer sizes from UK 4 - UK 30. International sizing is also displayed in our sizing chart. Please refer to the size chart in photos before purchasing size. We encourage you to measure yourself with guidance from our measuring guide. UK sizes for example may be a little smaller than what the average UK brand works to now so please go by body measurements as listed in the chart. For more information on sizing/measuring click here.
Customised to personal measurements: We do also offer a customised, made to measure service on patterns at the cost of an additional £10. We alter the pattern to your own body measurements so that you can sew up your own perfect dress in the perfect fit for your body. We highly recommend this service, because let's be honest, who doesn't want the perfect fit. If desired, select the 'CUSTOM MEASUREMENTS' options on the 'Size' drop down menu and complete the form. Please use our measuring diagram as a guide. *please note measurements are in centimetres (cm). For more information on sizing/measuring click here.
So what is a PDF pattern? This is a pattern which you will not receive physically via post. You will receive a downloadable PDF file which you can print yourself and connect together with tape, then cut out. You can then get to work sewing up your garment pattern in your own fabric! Remember to ensure your printing setting is scaled to 100% when printing out and check the ruler test panel once printed. Please view our PDF pattern info page here to find out more on how to use PDF sewing patterns.
