Comparing Sizes:

How Does Brand A Compare To Brand B?

Comparing sizes is easier than you think.

We've often been asked the following question when it comes to accurate sizing.

Comparing Sizes: Misses Versus Junior sizes...

According to the figures we use when drafting our knitting patterns, we base the garment sizes on the following actual measurements:
  • Junior 7:
    • Bust = 34 1/2"
    • Waist = 26"
    • Shoulder Width = 13 1/2"
    • Sleeve Length = 22 1/2"
    • Total Length = 24 1/4"
  • Miss 8:
    • Bust = 35"
    • Waist = 27"
    • Shoulder Width =14 1/2"
    • Sleeve Length = 23"
    • Total Length = 24 1/2"
  • Junior 9:
    • Bust = 35 1/2"
    • Waist = 27"
    • Shoulder Width = 13 3/4"
    • Sleeve Length = 23"
    • Total Length = 24 1/4"
  We'd recommend going for a Junior 9...it is closer in overall fit to the Misses size 8. Again, it depends on the style of the item in question and the way you like to wear it.
