Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...The foregoing deals only with the dimensions of the body direct and allowances for positions assumed, but does not deal with the losses met with in the process of manufacture, such as for seams and ease. TABLE 34. THIS table exemplifies and gives the results of the above deductions in the following manner, as applied to the normal sleeve: Line 1, the breast sizes as pen Table 31. Line 2, the corresponding heights for average forms in feet-and inches. Line 3, the same heights reduced to inches. Line 4 has added 3 inches to the total height, which, as explained above, is usually the amount that the height is less than the measurement from fingertip to finger-tip. Line 5 gives 6 inches additional to the quantities of Line 4, which provide for the outside measurements of angles. Line 6 gives the half-quantities of Line 5. These quantities are the measures from the center of the back to the tip of the finger of the arm measured, and while they include the length of the hand as given we now approach the sleeve length as dealt with in tailoring, as we only prepare our pattern for one side and gain the two sides by cutting the cloth double. Line 7 has deducted from Line 6 the lengths of the hand less 1 inch in this manner. The length from the tip of the finger to the wrist joint is g of the total height (or one head), but as a sleeve that only comes to the wrist is too short, as all tailors can testify, more length must be gained, hence this line has 1 inch added after the length to the wrist has been deducted. Example: --5 feet 8 equals 68 inches. To this add 9 inches (3 inches for the excess of length of the outstretched arms over the height, and 6 for the outside measurements of the angles), making in all 7-7 inches.
