Certain sizing changes may alter the appearance of a garment. Do not draw the tape too tightly. Center Back Neck—to-Wrist- With arm straight, measure from back base of neck, across shoulder, and along arm to wrist. Back Waist Length- Measure from the most prominent bone at base of neck to the natural waistline. Upper Arm- Measure around the widest section of the upper arm located above the elbow. Armhole Depth- Measure from the top outside edge of the shoulder down to the armpit.
Waist- Measure your waist at the smaller circumference of your natural waist, usually just above the belly button. Head Circumference- For an accurate head measure, place a tape measure across the forehead and measure around the full circumference of the head. Keep the tape snug for accurate results. Sock Measurements- The following measurements are for crew-style or dress socks, which usually come several inches above the ankle and below the calf.
Foot Circumference- To determine the foot circumference, measure around the widest part of your foot. Sock Height- To determine the height of the sock, measure from where you start to turn for the heel shaping to the top of the sock. Total Foot Length- To measure the total length of your foot, place a ruler or tape measure on the floor. I use these as body measurements and then add an inch or two for ease depending upon the look of the garment.
Again these are just a guideline as babies vary greatly at the same age. It is always best to measure the recipient if you can. Thank you so much for this info. I am trying to crochet a romper for my soon to be born great granddaughter but have no infant around to take measurements from. Would you happen to know how many inches it is from the crotch area to the shoulder?
Thank you for any help you are able to give. Thank you so much for this post!! I have been looking for a sizing chart to no avail until now. Fantastic experience of learning after reading your blog. Thank you dear for these tips and tricks. This chart will help me to make my new dress. Thank you for this very helpful chart!
I am working on an newborn dress summer dress. The tube top of the dress begins right under the arms and should go to about the knee. Your chart says 11inches for a knee length dress but I was curious where that measurement began.
Is it the base of the neck or the underarm? Hello, thank u for sharing this chart its very helpful but, i just have a question can these measurements be used in making patterns from non-stretchy fabric? Yes, you can use the same measurements as guidelines however, your ease will have to be adjusted based on your fabric type.
Thank you so much for theses charts! I have been searching forever for something like this. Can you tell me if these measurements are for finished products or these are the actual measurements of the body? I startet to crochet baby dresses and sine i have no little girs i have some problems wits sizes.
Still i have a question. You may want to consider taking a class on garment construction to assist. But as a general rule, I start out with enough chains to achieve the final measurement that I need. Hi, I have a similar question. Will it not be too small?
The neck width refers to the size of the opening across from one side to the other when the item is laying flat, it does not refer to the circumference around the neck. I have been knitting and crocheting for newborn charities since I retired 20 years ago and this is slightly different from the chart I have been using, which is an inch or more less than yours.
I have felt that some of the sweaters and socks were a little too small and now I am sure of it! Thank you for your work in putting this chart together! This knit-wear designer thanks you from the bottom of my heart! I have every book ever published about knitting design. I love that you find the charts useful.
