Sizing Chart on the Web??

monkeyrocker | Posted in Fitting on

Does anyone know where I can find a comprehensive (ie. including things like shoulder to shoulder, neck, arm length, etc.) table of measurments listing women’s standard sizes? I’ve been searching but can’t seem to find one!

Thank you!

    Hi. We haven't been able to find a comprehensive chart on the Web, so far. I know that Burda patterns and magazines include a chart that's much more detailed than the average Big 4 one. According to "Fit for Real People" (I think that' s where I read this), the slopers for most of the commercial pattern companies are not all that different, so you might start with the Burda measurements--they probably won't be that far off from the others.

    Eureka!!! (sort of.)

    I found a very good chart in both inches and centimeters. I thought I'd post the link for you all as the only other option seems to be ordering an expensive copy from ANSI or some other government agency (probably a good investment for a professional, but more than my homesewing pocketbook can stand at the moment). The chart is in English, but the sizes are Scandinavian (although measurements seem to be basically the same as American sizes). You can download both men's and women's charts (although the women's chart is more in-depth).
