Conversion Charts

Have you found a pattern you like but are unsure about which size to choose?

All patterns in the DROPS catalogues are designed to fit different sizes - some are meant to fit the body shape, some are meant to be worn loose, oversized. And under each of these designs you will find a chart including all the different sizes the model has been written for. It is of course very important that you follow the gauge recommended so the size you choose fits.

Since the actual measurements for S-M-L-XL-XXL-XXXL sizes can variate from country to country, it's recommended that you measure similar clothes you already have in your wardrobe to find the size that will fit you best! This will give you a better result that going simply by the size letter you usually use.
