This size chart is in centimeter and applies to all Opian sewing patterns available in our shop.The sizes are different in all countries, that's why we decided to name our size range from 1 to 8. This allows to avoid confusion over the ready-to-wear, but above all allows you to sew a garment corresponding to your own measures.
To choose your size, measure the bust with a tape measure (the fullest part of the bust), the waist (the point at which we bend to the side) and hip (the fullest part of the hip). If you are between sizes, opt for the larger one, as it's easier to take in than increase.
Opian patterns are designed for a 168cm stature and a B cup. In sewing patterns, cup sizes are not the same as for lingerie. Indeed, we measure the upper bust minus the bust.
However, all bodies are different, which is why it's recommended to make a toile before cutting the final fabric.
Please note that we are working on our sewing patterns and we'll add three more sizes to our sewing patterns in the following months. The new size will range from 0 to 10 and is already available for our Vaulion trousers.
