"Proportioned" Skirt Patterns – Useful or not?
I’m a taller-than-average person, so I’m often frustrated by the fact that Petite and Half-size patterns are available but the vertically gifted have no customized options in vintage patterns.
Or so I thought!
I stumbled across a few patterns for skirts in Proportioned Sizes:
Short: 5’3″ and under
Medium: 5’4″ to 5’6″
Tall: 5’7″ and over
Of course, I had to have one. I’m a sucker. I was hoping for more length between the waist and hip, or maybe side seam pockets that had longer/lower openings to accommodate my lanky arms more comfortably.
Nope. The only thing proportioned about this pattern is the hemline. Bummer. I don’t find this proportioned pattern stuff helpful. Do you?
