Find the right size using this size chart. The measurements are provided in both cm & inches. For the size reference, size photographed on me is a size UK 8 / EU 36 / US 4 / AU 8. Also on the side note, I design patterns for clothes mostly in a loose fit. I love wrap over styles as you can easily adjust them. I hope with that in mind it will be easier for you to pick a size. If you are looking for more fitted look, always go a size down.
How to measure?
BUST– Measure the circumference of your chest. Place one end of the tape measure at the fullest part of your bust, wrap it around (under your armpits, around your shoulder blades, and back to the front) to get the measurement.
WAIST– Measure the circumference of your waist. Use the tape to circle your waist (sort of like a belt would) at your natural waistline, which is located above your belly button and below your rib cage.
HIPS– Measure the circumference of your hips. Start at one hip and wrap the tape measure around your rear, around the other hip, and back to where you started. Make sure the tape is over the largest part of your buttocks. Because making sure the tape is level back there can be hard, try to do it in front of a mirror.
If you are still not sure about your size, here are a few of my comments in terms of the fit about each pattern.
Amélie is a loose fit top. The pattern is cut along the straight grain line so you don’t need to use a fabric with a stretch. If you want this top to be more fitted I would suggest you, go a size down. You can also cut the top on the bias to give the fabric more stretch. Longer straps will make this top more plunge and shorter will get you more coverage.
Chloé is another relaxed fit pattern. The skirt is cut on bias what gives a fabric maximum of a stretch. The waistband is made out of stretchy elastic which you’ll need to cut after measuring your waist. It means that you’ll determine how tight you want the waistband to be.
Roselyn is another of my favorite patterns I made. The dress is quite fitted, yet still comfortable to wear so I would suggest picking your size. You can easily make this a mini or maxi length my adjusting the skirt pattern pieces. This is why I love a wrap over dresses, as you can adjust them so easily.
Solène is one of the simplest patterns I sell. The wrap over style allows you to adjust the skirt very easily. The front of the skirt is made of two full panels which gives your coverage and won’t show thighs while walking.
Louise is definitely an easy make. With adjustable straps, you can decide how plungy you want the dress to be. As it’s a slip dress is best to use a fabric with a stretch if you don’t have one cute the pattern on bias.
Darlene dress has elasticated neckline, waist, and armholes meaning that it will fit any body shape. Pssst.. You can also easily make this dress as a maxi, by extending the skirt panels to the desired length.
Juliette is another loose fit dress for more comfort while moving or dancing. You can tighten the waist with a strap provided in the pattern but if you want more body-hugging dress I would suggest going a size or two down.
