Designer tips - Sizing references
Updated: Mar 16, 2022
Something important to think about when designing your projects is sizing. This is important for all projects, including socks, hats and shawls, but especially if you are working on garments. Having a great size range for garments is important to help you serve your customers, think 28-64" range for the chest/bust measurement. You can increase the accessibility of your accessory patterns by offering a good size range too.
The first step to good grading is sizing resources. Having multiple sources is a great idea, you can compare between the two, and sometimes a particular measurement is missing from one, but can be found in another. The links below are some that I refer to when designing and editing.
