kids sizing?
hi-
got a dumb question--how do children's sizes compare? for example...if a pattern does not give a number size (like child's size 8) but says "29" inch chest...finished 31")

what size does that work too???

thank you!

betsey (another dumb blonde question!)

this is definitely NOT a dumb question, I find it extremely useful. I would use a similar chart for baby sizes too.
