Choosing the right size in a sewing pattern is not as easy as choosing the right size in ready to wear garments. For starters, you don’t have a rack of finished garments to try on to see which fits best. And then there’s the fact that sewing pattern sizing is not the same as ready to wear. Sunni from A Fashionable Stitch tells how to measure yourself to figure out the right size to cut your pattern. Taking the time to figure out the right size at the beginning will save you heartache (and alterations) later. Go to A Fashionable Stitch to read her post.
