Frequently asked questions about ContrapuntPatterns

All the patterns in my shop are handmade especially for you. 
I'm a pattern maker, and all my patterns are handmade to a standard size or custom size. In order to make the best size for you I need to know as many details as possible. For this reason I need confirmation of your standard size.
Every item in my shop will have an image showing the standard sizes for that item.
If you need any help, just ask!
I love making custom sewing pattern designs! I can create the pattern from scratch, or from a pattern that you send me. The end result would be exactly what you’re requesting. The price would vary depending of the design.

In order to make a pattern that fits you as perfectly as possible, the more measurements that I can have, the merrier. For custom pattern, I'd ask that you do provide all the measurements that you see on my website – http://contrapunt.weebly.com/taking-measurements.html
even if they might seem a bit unnecessary.

 I'll be happy to help you with any questions that you may have. Thank you!
About the sizes of my patterns, you can choose Standard sizes S, M, L or XL, or I can make the pattern with custom measurements.
All my patterns are the exact size of the dress, hand drawn on white paper, and ready to mark and cut on the fabric, although, as the pattern is the exact size of the dress, I recommend you place it over your skin and "try it on" before you cut.
Each patternmaking method has his own sizes. In addition to this, the way of taking measurements is different depending on the patternmaking method.

I use the Martí System to make my patterns. This system uses a measurement for both upper bust and bust.

To take your measurements I recommend going my page http://contrapunt.weebly.com/taking-measurements.html
I hope this will help you. I’ll be delighted to help you with any other questions you may have.
It’s quite normal for someone’s measurements to fall between two sizes. I’m a perfect example: size S for the upper part of my body, and size M for the lower half. This kind of thing is normal, and I can adapt the pattern to suit your measurements. For this reason, your real measurements are more important to me than your UK or EU sizes.

To take your measurements I recommend going to my measurements page and taking measurements 7,8 and 11. Just send me these three measurements, and I can tell you what standard size will you need for my patterns. The page is here: http://contrapunt.weebly.com/taking-measurements.html
I hope this will help you. I’ll be delighted to help you with any other questions you may have.
All my patterns are handmade to a standard size or custom size and they contain English or spanish notes as well as notches that make it easy to join the pieces of the pattern together. You'll also receive a cutting diagram that will indicate the length of fabric (in either centimetres or inches, whichever you prefer). I'm afraid they do not include sewing instructions.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and I'll be delighted to help. Thanks!
If you'd like a custom size, I'd ask you to go to my page: http://contrapunt.weebly.com/taking-measurements.html and follow the illustrated instructions on how to take your measurements. This will help me to make the perfect size for you.

Just as a reminder, for custom-size patterns there are two items to purchase: the pattern you like and the custom size item here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/102701185/custom-size-1920-30-40-50-sewing-pattern?ref=shop_home_active_2
If you'd like a standard size pattern, all I need to know is your upper bust, bust, waist and hip.
Below is a description of how I measure the upper bust and the bust. You can also see some photos on my weebly page: http://contrapunt.weebly.com/taking-measurements.html

The bust,:
From the left armpit to the right armpit, passing over the most prominent part of your bust. This only includes your front/bust area; please do not include your back.

The upper bust :
Pass the tape right round the body, under your arms and above your bust. Do not pull the tape taut.

I hope this is helpful. If not, let me know, and I'll be happy to clarify!
Thank you
