    sewingfan1 commented on the forum topic Which size line on the pattern is which?

    On the page that your link takes me too it says the pattern is from size 36 to size 44 so basically the innermost line (smallest size) would be 36 and then each line working outwards goes up a size…

    sewingfan1 commented on the forum topic how to find waistline

    Usually the pattern pieces have a little horizontal marking on them for the waist. As it’s giving you specifics though (ie 126cm from the bottom etc) then I would mark it there on the ungathered pa…

    sewingfan1 commented on the forum topic Clear elastic

    What’s the reason for the elastic? Is it stretch fabric & the elastic is as a stabiliser so they keep their shape? If so, you could use thin strips of the fabric if it’s a non fraying sort, or the …

    sewingfan1 commented on the forum topic where can I find the finished garment measurements?

    That’s for ‘tall’ sizes. There’s a separate chart for that. 72 is equivalent to size 36, 76=38 etc. The difference between size categories is based on height only (standard size=height 5ft 6ins, ta…
