It is important that you take the measurements in your underwear that you usually wear and that you do not measure yourself after eating or during your period which is when you are likely to be more bloated.
To measure your BUST, put the tape around the middle of your bust, generally just above the nipple. The tape should be straight, at the hight of the shoulder blades and comfortable, neither too tight or too loose.
To locate the waist, bend your body slightly to one side. The fold that apppears is the waist. Place the measuring tape around the waist without pulling too tight or leaving it too loose.
For the hip measurement, with your legs together, place the measuring tape over the widest part of your bottom. The tape must be comfortable, neither too tight nor too loose.
It is very important that you know beforehand the style of the cut of the material you have chosen, especially before cutting the size of the piece you have selected and making it up, in order to avoid last-minute surprises and to ensure that it fits as you want it to. In the section “Ask me” in the third column “The hang is like this” you will be able to see the hang the piece will have according to the size you have chosen. If you want the piece to be more tight-fitting, choose a size less than the one recommended in the table, or if you prefer a looser fit, choose a size bigger. If in doubt, choose the larger size as you can always cut it down later.
When you select one of the sizes in our measurement talbe, we recommend the size you should use. The pattern is given in 5 sizes from a 36 to a 44 for adults and from 2-3 years to 10-11 years for girls. We recommend, but you decide.
Yes, in addition to the main size you will use to select your own size, the last photo in the gallery of each model has an illusation with the “piece measurements”. You can consult other related sizes in this table.
When you purchase a pattern, you will automatically receive an e-mail with a link where you can download 5 documents of din A4 in pdf format in Spanish and English which can be printed on your home computer. The five downloadable PDF’s are as follows: 1. Materials and trimmings 2. How to join the pattern pieces together 3. Pattern pieces (sizes 36-44 adult and 2-3 / 10-11 girls), 4. Cutting plan and 5. Sewing instructions.
In this pdf you will find, together with the illustration where you can see the proportions, a list of the kind of material that we recommend you use for the piece, the estimated quantity of material (we have taken size 44 as a reference) and the trimmings necessary to make up the piece. The list is also more detailled in the section “What do I need?” On the web site page of the product.
Joining the pages of the pattern consists of an assembly map where we show you how the pieces look when correctly placed together. In order to get them in the correct place, follow the alpha-numeric order as shown in the centre of each page:
1A, 1B, 1C …
2A, 2B, 2C …
The pattern sheets is the complete pattern of a model divided into sheets of din A4 so that you can print them at home on your home printer. Each pattern has five sizes from 36 to 44 for adults and age 2-3 / 10-11 for girls. Each size has a different coloured line so you don’t get confused.
The most important thing on this page, apart from the pattern is the control table. Before printing all the pages, we advise you just to print the first page where the control table appears. With a measuring tape, measure the table and check that the size is correct (5 x 5 cm.). If this size does not coincide it may be that the configuration on your printer has applied a scale value which you will have to cancel out. The correct value is 100% . The message may vary with each printer model. You may also receive a message such as “no scalable value” or “original size”… Once you have checked this you can print the remaining sheets.
Next, all you have to do is cut around the marks and join the sheets together with sellotape following the alpha-numeric order indicated in the central circle of each sheet and then you can cut out each piece of the pattern.
In the cutting plan we show you how to fold the material and suggest how to place the pattern pieces on the material. We also tell you the number of sheets of material you need to cut (X 1, X 2, X 3 , etc.) of each piece and what the pieces look like when they are cut from the material.
The sewing order will provide you with a detailed illustrated guide, step by step with detailed illustrations and support texts so that you folow the correct order to make up the piece you have chosen. If you have any questions you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org where we will be happy to help you.
