How to find your pants size

The measurements shown in the table correspond to the body measurements of the model for whom we have created our pants in the given size.

The closer your measurements are to those listed in this table, the more certain you will be that the garment will fit on you. When in doubt, it is always preferable to take a little bigger, a good seamstress can always take it back to adjust it!

To find out your measurements, take a tape measure and hold it by the metal end, which begins with the number 0. Go around the part of the body to be measured with the tape measure, sticking to the body but not tightening. Close the tape measure: the measurement is the number against the metal end (zero) of the tape measure.

If we don’t have a tape measure, take a belt, ribbon or some sort of tie, write down the length needed as explained above, and measure the number of centimeters with a ruler.

Pants length 7/8 (cm)6363636364646464646464

    In general, if in doubt between two sizes, it is always better to choose the larger size of the two.

    A good seamstress will always be able to adjust your pants to your body and tighten them if necessary.

    However, she will never be able to gain the few inches of missing fabric that would make you feel really good in your new pants.
