Sparrow Sizing + Fit

Sparrow comes in our NZ 4-32 size range and is a casual fit. The Shirt features a wide boxy cut with a relaxed shoulder, single front patch-pocket, turned down collar and ¾ popover button placket. The pattern also offers a sleeve length/shorten indication line, if you wish to customise. This pattern would be simple to hack into a dress too, by simply extending the hem!

The Pant + Short features a wide straight fit through the leg, with a simple elasticated waist, drawstring, and in-seam pockets. The pattern also offers a shorts indication line, if you want to make a pair up for warmer weather. We recommend referring to both the garment measurements and the body measurements when selecting a size, regardless of what size you wear in ready-to-wear clothing.

Our patterns are drafted for a height of 172cm (5'7"). You may wish to lengthen or shorten the body and sleeve hem depending on your height and personal preference and change the location of the pockets. If you wish to adjust the fit through the bust, we recommend using the bust apex points provided on the patterns.
