When you'e making your own clothes the first and most important bit of information is what size pattern you'll be using. To work this out you need the Size Chart (body measurements used to make the patterns), your own basic body measurements (bust, waist and hips), and if possible the pattern measurements as provided by the pattern company. My Pencil Skirt Sewing Pattern has been designed for woven cloth with no stretch and I've allowed 5cm garment ease in the fit of the hip on the skirt. So once you know your own hip measurement it's important that the pattern you use is at least 5cm (2") larger in the hip. This 5cm (2") is added to the pattern as garment ease for basic comfort and good fit.
