Ah! Sizing is such a minefield. We’ve all been in shop where a size 16 fits a treat, the next shop you’re a 18….. ok you can deal with that but the final store tells you that your measurements makes you a size 24 & they only go as far as a size 16 anyway.

That’s why I try to give good details about the measurements of each design.

No one is a perfect 10, your waist might be but your bum is happier in a size 12 & your bust, well that’s more like a 12 – 14.

I give full details in the description of each design including measurements. If a design looks better on a bigger chest it’s just not fair to sell it blindly to a more petite lady. This is, of course, only my opinion & I may be doing myself a disservice but on the other hand you might be that buxom lady that has your own problems finding clothes to fit you. If you need me to explain why it is my opinion you can get in touch with me via the email link.

I resize my vintage patterns to reflect today’s shape more realistically. It takes a long time & a lot of mathematics but it does mean that I often have that ‘something’ that no other website offers. That’s why it’s worth keeping an eye on this site & liking me on Facebook so you can keep up to date with all the gorgeous delights I take on next.
