A Note about Monsterfabriken Patterns:
Monsterfabriken are essentially pattern makers, whose main focus is the fit. Their aim is to make patterns that are easy to follow and alter. Their sewing patterns are plain but detailed so that you can easily adjust them to your body and your liking. Monsterfabriken patterns do not have seam allowances included. This could seem daunting, but actually it can be really beneifcial if you are adjusting patterns or using the pattern pieces as a block.
Monsterfabriken make two sizes fitted on two different bodies . . .
In order to get the fit we have intended we are working with primary and secondary body measurements. For tops, the chest measurement is the primary measurement and for bottoms it is the hip measurement. The secondary measurements will give you a hint how the garment will fit on you and if you need to make any changes in order to fit your body perfectly.
In order to choose the right size please take your body measurements and compare it with the size tables below. Range 1 and 2 represents two different body types where Range1 is customized for the smaller bodies and Range 2 for larger and also curvier bodies. When the body gets larger the proportions are changing. Therefore have we decided to make two separate size ranges with different base sizes and grading in order to get the best fit for as many as possible. We have a fixed body length of 168 cm in all of our patterns and you will have to adjust the length of your garment in order to fit your length.
