May 28, 2010, Newsletter Issue #129: Read the Size Chart

Tip of the Week

Patterns do not follow the same sizing standards as ready-to-wear clothing. The major U.S. commercial pattern companies have standardized sizing. European pattern companies and independent pattern companies all have their own sizing standards. It is important to read the measurement chart for each pattern you are purchasing and select the appropriate size based on their measurement chart.
