We have reviewed all of our product patterns, and have created this handy Magpie Goose size guide! Measure yourself up as per our instructions below, and then you'll know you're roughly a size X in Magpie Goose!
All future products will be made with this size guide in mind - we are on the path to consistency!
* This chart refers to your body measurements (in cm) Actual garment measurements can be found on each individual product page.
HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF TO FIND YOUR BEST FIT:
Use a measuring tape. Alternatively, you can use a piece of ribbon/string and then measure it with a ruler afterwards.
Don’t hold the tape measure too tightly to your body, you should be able to breathe comfortably when measuring.
It makes things easier if you do your measurements in front of a mirror or if you have a friend to help you out.
Take your measurements over bare skin or in your underwear.
Note: it is a good idea to take into account what underwear you normally wear. For example: if you normally wear a padded bra, it’s best to measure whilst wearing that bra as the padding can quite dramatically alter your measurements. Similarly, if it is a style that you wouldn't normally wear a bra with, measure over your bare skin.
With your shoulders relaxed and arms by your sides measure the largest point of your bust, ensure the tape measure is held level around your back.
Relax (don’t breathe in!) and measure the narrowest part of your waist, if you are unsure, bend sideways and where you ‘bend’ is a good indicator.
Stand with your feet together. Measure around the widest part of your hips and bottom. Ensure you keep the tape measure level.
HOW TO USE GARMENT MEASUREMENTS TO GET YOUR BEST FIT:Each of the Magpie Goose product pages will have some key measurements of that specific garment and advice about the fit (eg. oversized, true to size etc).
I am so thrilled with my purchase. It is incredibly flattering and the print is just beautiful! I definitely recommend this item! Just gorgeous.. I also feel good knowing that I am supporting a company that is making positive change and providing new opportunities for First Nations artists.
Fit is true to size. The feel softens with multiple washes as it’s linen. What l was truly surprised by was the colour - its a rich golden yellow!!! A beautiful surprise - the colour is more beautiful than pictured!!
I just love my new Lily pads Shirt dress
I love the print (yay for Dulcie!) and the cut of the dress. It’s really comfortable to wear. I used the sizing information on the website to figure out which size to buy - very useful. I love the feel of the linen fabric - it’s more substantial than many linen shirts, but I wore it on a hot day and it felt great. What a great combination of features.
Shirt dress - Lily pads
Just love it. Feels great to wear. Easy to dress up. I've worn it to work and out for dinner. The print and the colour is beautiful. I love the story about the design and finding out about the artist. Makes it even more special to wear. Easy friendly shopping experience.
