Drag Sizes Guide

Welcome to Katkow's exclusive drag sizing guide, tailor-made for the dazzling world of drag! Whether you're an experienced queen or just starting your journey, our patterns are designed to fit male bodies with padding, ensuring a glamorous fit every time.


Why We've Created Drag Sizes?

Standard sewing patterns often cater to traditional women's sizes, which might not be the best fit for drag queens who add padded hips and busts to their outfits. Our patterns address this gap, focusing on US standard men's & women's plus sizes, but with modifications for the drag community.


Key Differences in Katkow Drag Sizes:

  • Increased shoulder, arm, and leg widths.
  • Shorter crotch inseam compared to standard women's sizes.
  • Consideration for added hips and bust (average to size).

Every body is unique, and so is every drag outfit. All our patterns can be easily adjusted at the waist, knee, and elbow to achieve that perfect fit for your signature look.


Inclusive Sizing for Everyone

At Katkow, our designs are rooted in the glamorous world of drag, but our patterns aren’t exclusively for drag queens. If you meet our measurements, our patterns are for you! For instance, if you're a woman who's taller than average or has plus-size measurements and is seeking something beyond the basic styles typically offered for plus-size fashion, you'll find our patterns to be a refreshing change.

Our goal is to bring vibrant, fun, and high-fashion inspired patterns to all who desire them. Fashion is a form of expression, and we believe it should be inclusive and accessible. Whether you're rocking the stage or just the street, Katkow is here to make sure you do it in style.
