  • This Named pattern comes in sizes EUR 32-56 (US 0-24/ UK 4-28). 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.

      Beautiful dress
    Reviewed by ( Verified Buyer) on 04/25/2022
    I love the dress, instructions were good if you were an experienced seamstress. I did make a FBA, my only complaint was the sleeves were tight for the style and I would change them if I made again.
