Update! Restrictions for plus size measurements and petite have been lifted
We have now lifted petite and plus size measurements restrictions for all of our basic sewing patterns.
Are you frustrated with our restrictions on petite and plus size measurements? Do you want to experiment with drafting basic blocks that actually fit your plus size or petite clients? We’ve had hundreds of people email in with requests to lift the measurement restrictions, Well, we listened! This means no more frustrating red error messages! Or having to add unnecessary ease to get a larger bust, waist or hip measurement.
Below is an image of what you used to see! These error messages prevented you from entering accurate measurements for plus sizes and stopped you from drafting and experimenting with plus size basic blocks.
Now the profile page look something a bit like this… Note the larger measurements and the lack of error messages?
