Choosing the right size for the Valley jumpsuit
Today we’re going to talk about selecting the right size for the Valley jumpsuit. The first thing you’ll need to do is get some measurements. The two measurements needed to select your size for the Valley jumpsuit are bust and hip. Due to the shape of the jumpsuit, the waist measurement is of less importance. The most important thing here is for you to be able to put on your jumpsuit over your hips. The waist of the garment needs to be large enough to go over your hip.
- Measure your bust circumference and compare to the size chart.
- Measure your hip circumference and compare to the size chart.
Once you get your measurements you can select your size on the size chart. If you’re a straight size and don’t need to do any pattern adjustments you’re good to cut your pattern pieces!
2 size apart
If you fall into different sizes for each measurement as in the illustration above, you can either go with the middle straight size (38 or even 39) or blend between sizes. If you go for the middle size, the jumpsuit will fit a little closer around your hip and a little larger around your bust. The most important thing here is for you to be able to put on your jumpsuit over your hips. The waist of the garment needs to be large enough to go over your hip. In the situation above, if you consider that the garment ease at the waist level is 48 cm (18 ⁵⁷/₆₄) then the garment will be large enough to go over your hip if you choose the middle size (70 cm waist circumference for size 38 + 48 cm garment ease = 118 cm finished garment measurement). 118 cm is large enough for a 100 cm hip measurement.
3 size apart or more
If you’re more than 3 size apart in the more important measurements of bust and hip as in the illustration above, you’ll likely want to blend to avoid having one section of the jumpsuit very tight or loose.
If you need to blend between size, please follow the illustration below.
