Re: [TheCostumersManifesto] Standard Size Measurements
Helen Joseph-Armstrong is the guide that I use. However, I do find her standard measurment chart to run a bit small...so I just wing it from there.

Hi Group, Where is the best source for a 'Comprehensive' Table of
Standard Size Female Measurements on the Web ? [IE; If one is
wishing to make up Standard Size garments 10, 12, 14, 16, etc etc ?
The 2 Books I have ..
Metric Pattern Cutting by Winifred Aldrich [UK]
Patternmaking for Fashion Design by Helen Joseph-Armstrong [US]
Both Books supply Standard Measurements but the vertical
measurements ie, Nape to Waist, Waist to Hip, Waist to Knee Differ
By as Much as 5 centimetres in some sizes.
My intuition tells me that the UK book measurements are more
accurate but I do warm to the style of Helen Joseph-Armstrong.
Anyone here make up Standard Size Garb ? Any ideas ?
