Measuring and Sizing
Measuring properly and selecting the correct size is the beginning to making clothes that actually fit. We want you to have success when making out patterns so we've made a video and measuring chart for you to use next time you are working on a new project.

Here at Sew To Grow we strongly believe in making a YOU size. No one can see inside your garments to see what size you have made so it is important to trace the size (sizes) you measured rather than making the size you wear in ready-to-wear garments to ensure the best fit possible. We are transitioning from labeled sizing (XS-4XL) to numbered sizing. However, the measurements have not changed for each size.
