Longtime lurker, first time poster, but I’m having this sizing problem and I was wondering if anyone else was having the same.
Okay, I am an average sewer, but improving. According to my measurements, most commercial patterns tell me to buy between a size 12 and 14. I know patterns do not run RTW sizes (and I have no body image issues), so I was fine with this. Unfortunately, every time I made something it was hugemongous. I wasn’t swimming in it like I would a RTW 14, but it certainly did NOT fit properly. I finally got a clue and tried a size 8, and ta-dah it fits. So I have started buy size 8-10s for myself. I have redone my measurements several times, and always get the same number, so unless it’s my measuring tape… Has anyone else run into this problem?
The reason why this is a big issue for me, is I am considering have some bridesmaid dresses made. I have picked the pattern, but I don’t know how to size my girls. Any advice would be appreciated.
