Determining your Vintage paper Pattern Size

I was over at Craft Gossip today entering Trish Goodfield's How To Teach Art and Craft (enter by clicking link or pic). Trish is from TrishAlan Designs

Craft Gossip is an awesome blog and I suggest you pop over and visit. They have reviews, tutorials, giveaways and so much more on all crafts!

So I found this post about Bramcost Publications and their guide: How to Determine Your Vintage Size. A brilliant and conclusive chart determining your correct vintage paper pattern size. For adults and children! Sometimes we find a brilliant sewing or crochet or knitting pattern and there is no size guide. How do you know it will fit? A commercial size 10 in AU varies to a commercial 10 in the US, what do you think might happen if you throw 30 years into the mix.

Mar at Bramcost has provided a post on how to measure yourself and then compare that to a chart she has posted with the corresponding Vintage size.

Thanks Mar for taking the frustration out of using beautiful old patterns.

Pop over now and check both these out!
