  • This Named pattern comes in sizes EUR 32-50 (US 0-18/ UK 4-22). You will receive all these sizes with your order, unless otherwise indicated. Remember that the fit of a garment also depends on the style of the garment and whether it is fitted or loose. Each pattern will come with instructions that include a chart of finished garment measurements for all sizes. All Named patterns are designed for a 172 cm tall woman. You can always make your garments shorter or longer by amending the pattern. Please refer to the pattern alterations section of the Named website for further information on how to alter a Named pattern.

    If your measurements don’t fit one of these sizes you should go with either the closest chest or hip measurement, depending on the pattern in question. It is recommended that you choose the size with the closest chest measurement for tops, dresses and coats, and the closest hip measurement for pants and skirts.

    Always remember to check the following measurements:

    1. Chest measurement: Measure your chest across the fullest part, on top of your bra. Keep the measuring tape horizontally straight at the sides.
    2. Waist measurement: Measure against your skin, around the narrowest section of your waist.
    3. Hip measurement: Measure your hips at the widest part, on top of your underwear. Keep the measuring tape horizontally straight at the sides. Note that the widest part can also be the top of your thighs.

    Worked well with a knit
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 02/05/2016
    I made these with a knit to make a fancy sweatpant - I have only made pockets a few times but was able to follow the instructions well and they came out great in a knit.

    Elegant but casual
    Reviewed by on 10/13/2015
    I recently sewed these up for my 16 year old daughter and I was very pleased.

    I was surprised at the printing, two sizes are printed at a time, which makes for clearer tracing but could cause problems if you need to blend a larger size range.

    As my daughter is 5'3 I shortened the leg, as advised. I simply used the lines provided and it was quite straight forward.

    The sewing instructions are clear and the pieces go together well. The resulting pants hung beautifully. I made them in apparel velvet back vinyl with cotton modal for the pocket bags, a challenging sew but a stunning result.

    My first time sewing with this company but I was happy with the result.

    I look forward to making these for me in a soft denim, as a casual pant.
