Seen in the wild

Help designers to write patterns that actually fit!

Now here’s a great project, and one that we can all benefit from. Talented designer Ashley Knowlton of Wonk Knits) has decided to do something about the gaps in standard sizing charts – everything from underbust circumference (for a perfect empire waist) to instep, and of course much more. She’s gathering the data and will release it (medians, means and all the rest) for the use of anyone who wants to, once it’s been turned into useful information.
Of course the success of this depends entirely on getting massive amounts of data, and this is where you come in. You can help by contributing your own measurements here; and perhaps even more importantly, spreading the message via Facebook, Twitter, blogs etc.
Do it for the designers. Do it for the knitters. Do it for us all!
