    Format Reviewed: Single-Size Hard Copy

    (verified owner):

    The skirt pattern is pegged, rather than straight, which I found a very flattering look. I made my usual uneven hip height adjustments and lengthened the back vent after making a toile but, with these minor alterations, this StyleArc skirt pattern gave me an excellent fit. It is a classic style and I shall make this pattern multiple times (why did I take so long to order it?).

    The pattern would also be an excellent starting point for making minor variations to ring the changes on style. A front overlay with hidden side vent, or with a waistband instead of a facing.

    I also liked the length, the full front pattern pieces (avoiding a fold that never quite presses out at CF), and the economy in relation to fabric. Highly recommended.

    Why only 4 stars? The instructions could be improved, in particular bagging out the vent (I did extra hand sewing instead) and I would have liked a PDF version to be available instead of having to wait for a posted copy. I would have given 4.5 if that had been possible.

How Do I Know What Size I Am?

Choosing your pattern size is the most important step and we will help you determine this with these easy to follow steps.

  1. When taking your measurements ensure that you take them against your skin and not over clothing. One can wear a comfortable bra and knickers whilst measuring, as this will provide you with the most accurate measurements.
  2. Tape measure has to sit firmly around the points you are measuring. But be careful not to pull it too tight, as this will give you the incorrect size.
  3. When measuring circumferences (B, C, D, E) it is important to note that the tape measure must remain parallel to the floor. It is sometimes best to take the measurements in front of a mirror; this will help you see the angle of the tape measure.
  4. You will only require the basic body measurements to determine your pattern size which is indicated on our mannequin below:
A. Shoulder Breadth

Place the tape at the edge of the shoulder. Measure along the top of the shoulder blade/across the highest point of the shoulders to the other edge, following the natural slope and allow an extra finger for ease of any movement.

B. Upper Arm Girth

This point is taken as a circumference at your widest point of your upper arm.

C. Bust

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the fullest part of your chest.

D. Waist

This point is taken as a circumference and taken at the smallest part of your waist.

E. Hip

This point is taken as a circumference parallel to the floor at the widest part of your hips.
