Here something that can be useful for working or grading “Marie Claire” sewing patterns…This is a sizing chart for sizes 12 to 18. It was included on a 50’s sewing pattern envelope, and I truly don’t know if this company change its sizing chart over the years.
If you have some “Patrons marie claire” from the 50’s, it could help you for grading them ! The complete sizing chart is hard to find so I decide to share it 😉 (centimeters and inches)
Ps : It could work with all the sewing patterns from the same editor : “Les Editions Montsouris”, like “Les Patrons Favoris et Parisiens”, but I’m not 100% sure about that… And don’t forget they changed their sizes on the late 60’s
