I was curious if anybody knew where to find a chart with standard body measurements that the clothing sizes are based on? I would like to create some of my own patterns for knitting and need to know what is the "normal" size for the 3 month old size or 2 year old size...whatever. People usually know what size their kids wear, but have no idea of the actual measurements...unless you are a diaper hyena...lol

try <a href="http://www.hannaandersson.com" target="_blank">www.hannaandersson.com</a> then just click on some clothing item and there's a size chart in there.<br><br>

edited to add: oops no waist measurements just height and weight.

<a href="http://www.yarnstandards.com" target="_blank">www.yarnstandards.com</a> has some standard measurements -- maybe you can use this as a starting point?<br><br>
Hope this helps.
