No two bodies are the exact same size. Take a sampling of size 8s, and you’ll find a wide array of heights, postures, cup sizes, and proportions.
For this reason, patterns can never fit everyone out of the envelope.
Blueprints patterns features unique sizing in the sewing pattern world. Our sizing comes in part from experiences with past students and clients as an alternative to historical and current sizing ‘standards’.* Many new pattern companies have opted for their own sizing based on certain proportions and our patterns offer yet another ‘shape’ for you to try. Perhaps Blueprints will be the pattern that fits you best.
Blueprints patterns are drafted for a B cup. Those who are below or above this cup size may wish to alter the pattern with the instructions provided.
What if your measurements don’t match our chart? All of our patterns feature instructions for altering to better suit your shape!
