Body Measurements are standard as they relate to the body size that each grade is designed to fit.
Garment Measurements relate to the ease that the pattern to have in relations to the wearability, fit or style. The term "ease" refers to the intentional addition of extra space or allowance we have given each different garment. So Garment measurements vary greatly between our Sewing Pattern Products.
Understanding your body measurements:
Nerida Hansen Patterns are designed in Australia so are based on average Australian sizing, with EU and USA equivalent measurements provided. To allow for nuances that are not usual to market standards, we recommend you check our body measurements against your own for the size that is best suited to you for each garment, before you cut into your beautiful fabrics.
