What does 9″ of ease at the hip mean?

Lauri | Posted in Fitting on

Does this mean 9″ of ease per hip or 9″ of ease across both hips?  Thank you!

    Lauri, that means the pattern designer built in 9" of fabric ease beyond the straight hip measurement on the pattern envelope.  That is, if you're working with a size 10, and the envelope says a size 10 pattern measures 36" at the hip (usually 7" down from the waist), then the pattern designer built in another 9" for garment ease.  The hip measurement on the finished garment is designed to be 45".  If you don't want that much ease, you can adjust accordingly. Good luck.
