Sizing


About Style Falcon’s Cut, Sizing and Usability


Style Falcon patterns are drafted for a mature figure. That's not an age - it's a body type:

  • Little bust-to-waist definition
  • More room at the tummy, hip and bicep
  • Proportions for a person about 5'4" (1.6 meters) tall
  • Center-back seams, with rounded back and forward shoulder shaping
  • Lower bust points, for a “C” to “D” cup

This sizing and shaping is really different from other sewing patterns you may have tried. Most sewing patterns are shaped for a youthful hourglass figure, even though most people are shaped very differently!

 

How to Find Your Size

Style Falcon patterns come in 11 sizes, from A to K. You get all sizes with your pattern purchase. You can blend between sizes to get a custom fit. 

To start, choose the size that best matches your body measurements. For tops, jackets and dresses, start with the bust size. For skirts and pants, start with the waist size. 

All patterns have ease for comfort, style and design. Once you have selected your body size from the table below, refer to the finished measurements for the pattern you want to make. The finished measurements will give you a sense of how much ease the garment has.
