How do I choose the right size pattern?

Multi-sized Patterns

Most patterns are now printed with several sizes on one sheet. Pick the size range that the majority of your measurements fit into. You will be able to blend the sizes together to fit your body. If you have to choose between a pattern that matches your hip or waist measurement, choose the one closest to your hip measurement. It is easier to alter the waist line.
