What is a standard size chart
The size chart is used to quickly produce a basic block without the need for entering in all your bespoke measurements.
It is predominantly used by students and professionals that are creating high fashion garments to fit a standard model figure.
Choosing a size chart
We have two standard size charts for you to choose from. The mature chart includes a larger range of sizes (UK 4-24) and
features a 4cm increase in the waist and hip circumference. The younger chart has a reduced size range (UK4-14) and features
no size increase on the waist or hip circumference. To find out more about each chart click the Which Size? button at the
bottom of each individual chart.
Selecting a size
Find the set of measurements that matches your bust, waist and hip most accurately and select it by clicking the size (8, 10, 12, 14 etc).
To view a more comprehensive list of body measurements, click the Show More button at the bottom of each chart.
Customising standard sizes
Everyone has a unique shape and sometimes a standard size chart simply doesn’t fit. However, PatternLab allows you to
customise or refine any standard size. Simply create a profile and base it upon a standard size. You can then adjust each
individual measurement and save your customisations.
