I figure we have bust size and clothing size, time to finish the picture.

I'm going for height without shoes on!

I'm also five two. Used to have another half inch, but I seem to have lost it, or maybe it migrated to my waist, where it grew to about ten inches.

So tell me, Bridget, is this a case of great minds think alike or are you doing the work for me here by posting the poll I lazily mentioned?

I'm 5'3". I wonder if we will see a grouping of people at the low end and the high end of the spectrum because RTW generally fits those in the middle? I honestly probably wouldn't have gotten so into sewing if I could find clothes that fit well RTW.

Fun polls. I won't be answering any "How much do you weigh" polls, though...anonymous or not! :eek:

I like this poll!  I'm just 5'4" so I got to click the 5'4" - 5'6" button.  I feel tall!  :)

Let's just say I had some spare time.  Besides, we have 2 of the three standard measurements, why not be complete in our data gathering?

I'm just shy of 5'8". I lengthen all patterns in the bodice. Pants lenght is usually okay in patterns and RTW.

Our pediatrician told me recently that 5'7" is 95th percentile for U.S. women, meaning 95% of us should respond below that choice. I found that hard to believe andf it doesn't seemt to be the case here. The Doc. was telling me because I had commented that i didn't know where DS  was getting his height.
