BTW, I work in inches first, then translate into cm for the pattern

I work in inches because

  1. The clothing sizes that I am used to are in inches
  2. UK and US peeps both can understand inches (Desolée, Es tut mir leid!)
  3. I’m old-fashioned and hopelessly lazy
  4. The units of measurement are incidental anyway – one day, I think I’ll publish a pattern in light years, just for the laugh. Maybe my next Dr. Who one (last one).

So if I give measurements elsewhere in the blog without giving the units, please assume inches.

Unless I’m being derogatory about a male enemy. Then it’s cm mm.
