Incredible MySizePatterns sizes
Taking into account the amount of possible combinations for the size, the height, the bust size or waist size, the back type or the shoulder type you may find a MySizePatterns model in up to 198 unique sizes for a man and 792 sizes for a woman. Incredible? Yes, it is.
How is it possible? Where do all these sizes come from? Well, as you have probably already noticed, we go far beyond the standard sizing offered by other commercial pattern magazines and sites. We do not leave you with a pattern for standard measurements, but we make your sewing life easier and provide you with patterns graded additionally for the height and the depth (bust sizes for women-swear). Why all this trouble? Well, because we are all Perfectly non-standard. Therefore, you will find here patterns adjusted for certain structural differences in a silhouette versus the standard.
Our patterns are of course graded for different circumferences, which is basically the only variety that you find elsewhere.
MySizePatterns are also graded for different heights.
And finally, the option that makes us really proud – grading for the depth. Different bust sizes.
You may find in some books and online resources comments on how to grade a pattern for a certain height or make a full bust adjustment. However, these tips are quite generic and refer only to working with a basic bodice pattern. This is not really much help if you would like to modify a pattern with an original design and cuts. Not to mention your time and the chance of miscalculating the whole thing.
So, you can choose from a combination of not only different “sizes” (circumference sizes) and different heights, but MySizePatterns sizing is enriched with 4 different bust sizes. Somewhere there you will definitely find you best fit!
But that is not all. For some garments, the real wardrobe staples or models that would be quite difficult to adjust on your own, we offer ready-to-use patterns in versions for either SWAY-back or ROUNDED-back. These silhouette deviations require adjustment on the pattern construction phase and fitting issues are in most cases (depending on the design) quite impossible to fix during sewing, once the fabric has been cut.
And now something special or even very special. You can get our pattern tailored for your individual body measurements. Via Custom order module you can ask that for one of our models presented on the site will be constructed for your individual measurements.
One final note here. Creating the largest possible number of sizes, just to show off, is not for us a target in itself. In some cases the models are not graded for all these dimensions. We do it only when it really makes sense, when it significantly helps the process of fitting.
Our GENTLEMEN are not always 186cm tall and not larger than the size EU 58 /US 48 (the usual sizing offer) – as most of the pattern-making companies assume. Therefore, we extended our sizes up to EU 64 /US 54 and offer the patterns in 6 heights.
Not to mention, that we also address in our patterns the most common non-standard feature of a male silhouette – sloping shoulders or square shoulders.
And finally: our CHILDREN. We can clearly see that children have different proportions, even if they have the same height. This was a trigger to develop a sizing system for children with 3 sizes for a given height (S / M / L). Moreover, all children patterns come in 10 heights (Note: our patterns for children will appear on the site at the end of the summer).
