If you find yourself in the crossover 14-20 sizes and are struggling to choose between the Eucalypt & Eucalypt Curve Patterns, today I will be sharing a visual comparison between them! Our diagrams will compare a size 18 from our 0-20 range shown in outline to the size 18 in the Curve range as shown in beige.
As with all of our patterns, Eucalypt Sizes 0-20 have been drafted for a 2″ (5cm) difference between the upper bust and full bust measurement. Eucalypt Curve sizes 14-30 have been drafted for a 4” (10cm) difference between the upper bust and full bust measurement. The Curve pattern is drafted with the same style and design details but with a curvy figure in mind and slightly more ease to allow for more comfort around the bust.
The Curve pattern includes a dart for a better bust fit on fuller busts as well as more coverage in the armscye. The hemline is slightly longer in the Curve pattern due to feedback we received during our testing. If you find yourself in the crossover of the two ranges in sizes 14-20 we recommend that you choose your pattern based on your cup size.
Both patterns come with the same awesome variations and all our tutorials and add-on ideas can be applied to either!
I hope you have found this breakdown on how to choose between Eucalypt and Eucalypt Curve helpful. We are always here to help! Pop a comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask any questions!
