Size Charts

Twig + Tale Size Chart Info

Our sizes may differ from what you are familiar with in ready-to-wear clothing sizes such as you would buy in a clothing store. We use ATSM industry standard sizing.  We recommend you take accurate measurements and compare those measurements to the chart to choose the correct size, rather than using age as a guide.    

We know that making something by hand is an act of love - and we wish for you to have a beautifully fitting garment.  All Twig + Tale patterns provide instruction on how to take accurate measurements for a great fit.

Women

Our women's sizes carry directly on from our children's sizes and currently include tween, women and curvy women all in the one pattern.

Tween - Girl's size 12 bridges the gap from the child sizes
Women - Sizes A-I
Curvy women Sizes J-N

Because different countries use different sizing systems (for example a size 8 in New Zealand is different to a size 8 in the USA and the UK) we have chosen to use a non-numerical sizing system for our women's patterns.

Our women's sizes are drafted for a C sewing cup. 
Certain patterns feature "split sizing" where the curvy women's sizes J-N are drafted for a DD sewing cup. These patterns are Trailblazer, Forester and Pathfinder.
 

Sewing cup sizes are different to a regular bra cup size and can be determined as follows:

1) Measure your full bust by wrapping the tape measure around the fullest part of your bust. 
2) Measure your high bust by snugly wrapping the tape measure around your chest and under your arms. 
3) Subtract your high bust from your full bust, and use the difference to figure out your pattern cup size:

    1″ = A cup
    2″ = B cup
    3″ = C cup
    4″ = D cup
    5″ = DD cup
