New Sizing

We have had several requests for larger sizes in our patterns and we are happy to say that we have heard you! While we can’t as yet facilitate a plus size range due not having skills and experience creating styles for plus size but we have extended our sizing to now including 7 sizes.

We also wanted to let you know that we have changed our sizing and now align our styles with the European market. We wanted to provide a smaller increase between our sizes. Previously we based our sizing on Australian and New Zealand ready to wear, adopting a 5cm (2 inch) increase in the body circumference i.e. the bust, waist and hip all have 5cm between each size. We now offer our sizing with a smaller increase between our sizes of 4cm. We are hoping that the change in sizes will suit a broader range of sewers ( is there are better name to call ourselves? I did come across the term: ‘seamster’) and resulting in a better fit. Check out our new size chart below:

We will be updating some of our existing styles to follow our new size guide.

  • Sewists? Also the next time you change/add sizing please go down to a 34.

    • Yes Sewists is better! Thanks for your feedback, noted and will consider!

      I agree … please add the size 34, the smallest size in the old sizing method was perfect for me … but with the new sizing, the smallest is too big and I’m not a good enough seamstress to alter patterns …
      I love love love your patterns and glad that larger sizing will be added but please please don’t forget us in the small size …
      thank you very much ….

    • Hi Molly, thank you for your feedback and comments, very much appreciated, we will take it into consideration.

    • Nic

      Yes, please include the smaller size again!! That’s the reason I sew; to have clothes with a waist that fit properly. The smallest size for your scalloped shorts fitted me perfectly the first time, it was great!

  • Awesome, but please, pretty please, learn about plus sizing and work it in! There are so many beautiful patterns I want to make but I can’t because of the sizing. Thanks!

    • Hello, thanks for your feedback. I wish it was just a simple as learning the plus sizing, Unfortunately there is so much more to it and being such a little company we just can’t cater for everything 🙁 I wish we could though !!!

    hi,

    for those who have bought the pattern before the updated sizing, would they/we be getting the updated sizing version? or do we have to buy the pattern again to get the ones with the new sizing?
    thank you.
    i’ve bought a number of your pattern via etsy, but i’m very sure i don’t have the receipt/proof of purchase anymore … but i do have the easy purchases detail …
