Is there a chart somewhere that has kids measurments on it?

For example, if I want to make a pair of 4T pants, is there a chart somewhere that has the standard waist size, rise, inseem etc?

If not maybe we can make one? I need sizes newborn to 5T, and I dont have kids in all of those sizes to measure! (my ds is an 18monts/2T but with tiny waist and giant head, so its hard to use him for a sample!)

That's very funny! I was looking for exactly the same information, and just came upon the Fibregypsy chart by a different route. If only I'd come here first!

just found this thread. I have a question. The chest size for a newborn is up to 18 inches, but that seems rather big to me.....I could see maybe for something sewn but what for something more stretchy like crochet or knit?

You could take an existing garment that fits, like a onsie, and measure across and multiply by two, that would give you a good approximation of chest measurement.  If baby isn't born yet, you could still do the same idea but with, say 0-3 month or 3-6 month, onsie.  

I would have to add tho, that it's prolly not that far off.  My daughter, while on the smaller size, has a 20" chest and has had this measurement for some time now.  (She's in a 3T at 3.5 y/o, that's recent size, she still wears some of her 2T stuff)
