Your Cashmerette Size Results

Our patterns are designed for curves in cup sizes C-H. If your cup size is smaller proportionally to your shoulders than our C/D cup size, you will need to do a small bust adjustment. To calculate how much width you need to remove from your pattern piece, divide the total SBA amount needed by two (as the pattern piece represents half the garment). How to do an SBA >

Our patterns are designed for curves in cup sizes C-H. If your cup size is larger proportionally to your shoulders than our G/H cup size, you will need to do a full bust adjustment.

What Should I Do Next?

We always recommend making a muslin (test garment) first, in a similar weight, drape, and stretch fabric to your final fabric. This allows you to check the fit and make any adjustments needed before cutting into your final fabric. Learn about common fit adjustments >

How to Take Your Measurements

Taking accurate measurements of your body before every project is key to creating well-fitting garments. Wear tight-fitting clothes and the same undergarments that you'll be wearing with the final garment.

High Bust

Place the measuring tape over the top of your bust and underneath your armpits. The tape will be horizontal at your back and front, and diagonal at your side. Keep your arms down when recording your high bust measurement.

Full Bust

Place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust. Keep your arms down when recording your full bust measurement.

Standing Waist

Place the measuring tape at the narrowest part of your torso (your natural waist). Use this waist measurement for garments that have stretch, or have a lot of ease (are flowy).

Sitting Waist

While standing, place the measuring tape at the narrowest part of your waist (your natural waist), then sit down in a chair, allowing the tape to slide as your waist expands. Use this waist measurement for garments that do not stretch and are closely fitted. 

Standing Hips

Place the measuring tape around the widest part of your hips. Use this hip measurement for garments that stretch or have a lot of ease (are flowy).

Sitting Hips

While standing, place the measuring tape around the widest part of your hips, and then sit down in a chair, allowing the tape to slide as your body expands. Use this hip measurement for garments that do not stretch and are closely fitted. 

Thigh

Place the measuring tape around the widest part of your thigh.

Bicep

Place the measuring tape around your arm at armpit level, around the fullest part of your upper arm. Keep your arm down and relaxed while taking this measurement.

Compare your body measurements to the chart below to select your size. If you fit into different sizes at your bust, waist or hip, you can grade between the sizes to make a custom-fit size that will fit you.
