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).
This is a classic shirt dress in an absolutely gorgeous art print that draws heaps of compliments. A great conversation starter and it is great that the info about the artist and the design are included so you can talk about it.
It feels and fits really well. Arrived very quickly too. Very happy with the overall shopping experience thank you.
I bought the shirt dress with the Macassans trading with my people print and I adore it. It is great quality, and an excellent fit. It is longer than what I would normally wear but works really well. It has big pockets too which are essential I think. And I get many positive comments whenever I wear it. The only thing I would change (and will when I get around to it) are that the belt loops are higher than I want to wear it. However this is remedied by taking the belt out of the loops to just tie it around my waist. Easy! This dress was so worth $$ and I love that it supports Aboriginal artists and was made in Australia. I plan on getting more...
This dress is next level. The quality is fabulous- fabric is thick and the art is eye catching and vibrant. Definitely a show stopper in my opinion. I feel like a
I love the feel of fabric on my skin, true to size, it fits not too tight and not too baggy. Also I like the length of sleeves. Personally it could have been absolutely perfect if it's straight hem line. Overall I keep wearing this dress almost everyday since I purchased!
