We want to be able to produce great patterns for the 15th and 16th centuries – so we need your help to know what sizes real people are, rather than just the standard range on the measurement charts.
Our first pattern will be the Lengberg skirted bra pattern, followed by a late 15th century Lengberg gown pattern. And then we’ve got many other patterns planned, for both men and women from the 15th and 16th centuries.
Now we’ve had a lot of questions about “What sizes will the Lengberg skirted bra pattern come in?” So we are doing a measurement survey to find out what the size range of our customers actually is, so we can produce a good range of sizes.
Even if you are not interested in the Lengberg Bra pattern, please feel free to join in – we’ll be using the information for the other women’s patterns too. (Gentlemen, your survey is coming later.)
You’ll need a tape measure and a few minutes to fill this out. Answers can be in inches or centimeters. It’s easiest to get someone else to measure you, but you can do it yourself with the help of a mirror.
We’ve added instructions on the form to explain how to take each measurement – the diagram below shows what we are after.
Thank you so much for your help!
