  1. Hi Lori,
    I recently bought your men’s patternmaking book from Amazon. Thank you so much for including standard size tables for the larger, taller men. I did the happy dance when I saw the chart went up to 56T, as that is my son’s size. His measurements are very close to the ones in your table.
    I’m using the book to draft patterns. Are there any errors in the directions I should be aware of? I’m using the 2nd printing 2012 edition.
    I’m drafting the front upper body and have run into a problem. The line from G-K that is used to determine the armscye depth is too high on my draft. K is slightly above the N-O line, and way above the J-I line which is its approximate location on the example. I wanted to check measurement #20 (high neck point to front side seam) against the standard chart for 56T, but the chart does not include this measurement.
    Any help you can give me will be much appreciated.
    Thank you.
