Pattern: Vogue 4092 - Vogue Special Design
Description: Lovely fitted suit with sleeveless blouse.
Size: 10 - Bust 31 - Hip 33 Now THIS sizing was 1960.
That would be a so-called size 0 now.
A used -to -be size 12--- before the manufacturers started the "vanity sizing" for all the folks who had gained weight was 34- 23- 34. The manufacturers got together and started the revised vanity sizing so that a size 20 lady could pick a size 12 off the rack and it would fit since the dimensions had been greatly enlarged. This was so they wouldn't be embarrassed to go pick a large sized dress off the rack. A so-called size 12 in today's sizing is ginormous. I know because I wear that size, and trust me...I could never fit into a "back in day" size 12.
Just was aghast at the difference. I don't think I could diet to those measurements of the days of yore. 😩
