As the rapid development of e-commerce, online purchasing is widely accepted by customers. Although goods in online shop are comparatively low, it really brings a lot of problems such as quality, color, and size. Size may be the most common problem people are facing.
We all know that making patterns is a pretty hard thing to do, if you never did it before! So it might be useful to start out with some regular patterns you can buy in sewing or tailor shop, just to get an idea about it.
So you go out and buy a pattern size “M”, because this is what you usually wear! Afterwards the surprise, its not the best fit!? Then let me explain to you:
First of all, you will never be able to go out shopping for regular clothing and always fit size “M”, sometimes it will be a size bigger or smaller. The reason for that is that the pattern sizes between the different manufactures are not standardized (different reasons like the marketing aspect are ausing that.. well all woman feel better in a smaller size, than having size “L” marked on the back!
If you are going out to buy a pattern, then take your body measurements along. You will need bust-waist-hip, and of course your height. On the back side you will see a chart where you should have a look at, to estimate where your measurements fit in best. (You should take new measurements at least every half year…even if you won’t believe, but your body can change itself!)
So if you finally found the best pattern size for you, it is all just a matter of adjusting things a little! Make the skirt, blouse, pants etc. a little longer or shorter in case you might be taller or smaller than the given height on the pattern. Or even tighter, depending on that what you measured!
Watch out: The seams on regular patterns are made for sewing! So not every seam is implementable the way it’s shown on the pattern and has to be adjusted as well. Start with simple things like a skirt.
Good news: In fact, it is not necessary for you to concern such trouble listed above when you are in a latex shop (e.g. Sexiw). Due to the flexibility of latex, the sizes you choose are always matching well with your figure, whatever latex catsuits, latex leggings, or latex uniforms….
