How to choose between Darling Ranges & Darling Ranges Curve

If you find yourself in the crossover 14-20 sizes and are struggling to choose between Darling Ranges & Darling Ranges 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 the outline to the size 18 in the Curve range as shown in pink.

As with all of our patterns, the Darling Ranges Curve pattern is drafted with the same style and design details but with a curvy figure in mind. The Darling Ranges pattern is drafted for a 2″ (5cm) difference between high bust and full bust whereas the Darling Ranges Curve is based on our Curve block which is drafted for a 4″ (10cm) difference between high bust and full bust.

Key differences for the Curve pattern beyond bust ease include a slightly higher waistline, which results in a slightly longer skirt, and a bit more ease in key areas.

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 and personal ease preferences. If you have a 2″ (5cm) difference between high bust and full bust we would recommend Darling Ranges. If you have a 4″ (10cm) or more difference between high bust and full bust, we recommend Darling Ranges Curve.

Both patterns come with the same awesome variations and all our tutorials and add-on ideas can be applied to either!
