Behind the scene: plus size range survey

list In Articles On

A lot of things are happening here at Ready to sew! I'm working on a new plus size range. I didn't figure out yet how it will work and look like and I need your help curvy ladies!

But first, let me introduce you to Sheryl, the pretty lady on the right. Sheryl is born in Hong Kong, but she is an American citizen. Here, she poses next to Françoise and Martha, her new colleagues. Sheryl comes to help in the development of plus size patterns at Ready to sew. It's been 8 month that I have an eye on Sheryl, more than 3 months that we signed the contract, but only a few days that she joined the team and am already in love.

Sheryl is a professional with very very high salary expectations! She will oversee the development of plus sizes patterns thanks to her awesome body modeled from the scan of thousands of people and then analyzed. I am already using her beautiful plump body to drape new blocks (she agrees and supports very well pin pricks). Sheryl and I will work hard this summer, after 3 month thinking about her and waiting for her arrival, she is finally here!

Welcome in the team Sheryl and thank you for helping us in the development of a no #sizewashing brand! #alvaform

Help Sheryl and I design the most inclusive block and size range possible and establish the best possible grading rules by taking 15 min of your precious time to answer a survey. I need measurements from women size 46 (14/16 US and 18/20 UK) and up. 

You'll need a tape measure to provide your measurements and someone to help (if possible). I am asking for all measurements in centimeters, rounded up to the nearest number listed. Click here if you need to convert from inches to centimeters:

If you find that your measurements are always under the smallest number of the list, it means the survey is not made for you. There will be a new survey really soon that will probably match your measurements!

In case you are interested, I bought this dummy from the Alvanon compagny. Alvanon has developed the world’s most advanced technical sizing and fit tools to help their clients ensure accurate and consistent apparel product execution. This plus size dress form is amazing (and also very very expensive) !

EDIT: the survey is off, thank you for answering !
