Standard Size Guide
We have three different size charts for our customers. Each size chart is having slight variations so that you can easily find the right size for yourself.
The measurements given in these charts are NOT body measurements. They are finished garment measurements and include ease. You must decide how much ease you like in your finished garment. We suggest you measure the circumference of several of your favorite garments, and use those numbers to select the right size for yourself.
