measurement collective

someone had a great idea.

from the ashley knits blog:

What’s the benefit of this?
Instead of going by the existing tables I can find, which aren’t always based on real people, don’t always include all the measurements I need, and which I haven’t always found extremely helpful when sizing patterns for larger than, say, a 44in size, this will help me create designs that will fit a large range of people. Also, once I publish my results, this might help other designers do the same. And you, as a participator, will have an easy reference for your measurements for fitting your own patterns or customizing others’, if you decide to save it to your computer or keep it somewhere else that is safe.

i think this will help both knitters (better fitting garments!) and designers (real averages if enough people participate!).

you can take the measurement collective survey here.
