Help is needed.
I have been happily downloading Loretti patterns for 99c AUS from http://www.sewingpatterns.com/index.php.
The patterns look good and the sizing isn’t too bad however the instructions are a bit light on and I would love ot know what the following terms mean in English:
bokovaya, chast, polochki, spinki and tsentralnaya. I am such a non-worldly person I don’t even know what language they are from.

Please educate me!

    You might try Google Translate… I am curious about those patterns; how is the sizing?

    I just downloaded my first Loretti pattern last night and cannot find any information the sizing! Even where it came from. If we can find the designer, we should be able to request the sizing. Maybe Customer Service at SewingPatterns can point us in the right direction.

    I just selected a size I would normally go for in the shops, considering the fit of the clothing, for example a small in a babydoll style dress.

    She forgot “manzjeta”! I’m doing pattern 5598 now that I’ve given up on 5789 for its difficulty. These really need diagrams to show how the pieces go!!! I’m not a pro- not a beginner by any means, but I just don’t get how pattern 5789s sleeves go at all.

    I completely agree – had I known the instructions were so uninformative I would have never gone through with the purchase, I haven’t even bothered attempting to cut the fabric as I have no idea what to cute where. The instructions are in English but make no sense. Very disappointed, would not recommend buying these patterns.
