For some patterns personal measurements are needed, instead of cm you can then read the number of the measure. These correspond to the M-numbers below:
Standard Measure Tables
Most of the patterns use the following measure tables. In almost all cases the measures correspond to body measures without additions or tightening. An exception is the fitted smokkr which must have a tight fit.
