Sizing Tables, Charts, Guidelines, & Croquis
Sizing is given for two sizing schemes
Missy sizing Numeric Sizes 2 through 20 (10 sizes)
Alpha Sizes XXS through XXL (7 sizes)
Lavis (plus) sizing Numeric Sizes 14W through 36W (12 sizes)
Alpha Sizes XLX through 5X (6 sizes)
Each Sizing Table pdf has a version in inches and in centimeters. There are two measurements not given on the Lavish tables because I don't have access to accurate measurements to share.
Each table has numbers above the other sizing. This can make it easier to keep track of the sizes being offered and have no significance other than that!
I am providing this as a product (which it is!) because I can then track who has it and if I make changes, contact you. There are four pdfs to download!
Croquis are quick drawings. Trust me these are not quick sketches (getting the layers to work in Illustrator was a task!), but croquis is the term used for drawings that one might sketch on top of to do quicker drawings. I've put measurements on top of these so I think they qualify as croquis. The figures are torsos since we rarely do a full figure and it saves space. These two Croquis are to show where each measurement is taken on the body with corresponding letters in the tables and referenced on the Croquis.
I provide no underlying explanation of these measurements because I explain them in various courses I teach. Please email me if you need explanations, or purchase the ASTM sizing and measuring guidelines. This book is the best value: individual sizing tables are $50/each.
These measurements are averages. I have tweaked the ASTM measurements to suit my customer and these are slightly more generous than strict ASTM averages.
I usually use the Alpha sizes, which have more ease between sizes that I find better suited to the stitch patterns I choose. If you want to know more about sizing please consider taking my ASOG Webinar. I try to offer it four times a year. It is simply an overview of what you will learn in the A System of Grading Course. ASOG is a college-level course, offered in 14 sessions. The material is intense and I give a huge amount of information! I do plan to add ASOG modules in 2021, but they likely will need the initial course to fully understand.
