It's a twelve Karelyn. I thought Nic was a 12, well...she is but her measurements are more than this. Pattern measurements (i.e size 12) is NOT the same as 'off the peg' size 12 lol.

True, they bear no resemblance whatsoever, and often differ by 2-3 sizes.

If it's a vintage pattern a twelve would be 34" bust, a modern 12 is 36", what does it measure?

no good for me then, that's a pity, a vintage size pattern. I would have thought you would measure the pattern pieces before cutting Lorraine, too eager to get going I expect.

Yeah. My bad I know. I just went for the 12, completely forgetting what I know about measurements. Didn't measure a darned thing, lol. Still, never know, it might fit, and if it doesn't now, it may soon 'cause she's back on her fitness and diet kick.

I remember Chelsea girl Kim. Mr Green

If it doesn't fit Nic, I might try selling it Karelyn. Think, if I remember, I'll measure it properly tomorrow.

Sell it, lots of girls that wear the vintage look around here would snap that up, so I am guessing others would.
