I'm going to be sewing and knitting for my sisters' kids for christmas and I wanted to know if there is a size chart available.  I know my niece wears 5T, but I don't know how big that is in inches.  Sorry, I don't work from patterns, I never learned how and I prefer to make my own out of newspaper.
If there was a resource online, that would be excellent.  I'm not particularly fond of the idea of going into a store and measuring and recording the sizes of children's clothing.

And for those curious, I know that I am making my niece a doctor's coat complete with her name and possibly a lanyard with "hospital info" on it.

I am interested in Halloween Rinchies (round inchies) to make bottle cap magnets.

I traveled to Crowded Closet, a nifty thriftstore here, and measured a 5T longsleeve shirt.  From shoulder to shoulder it was (approximately) 13 in, and down the sleeve it was 14 in with a length from collar to bottom of 17 in.  I found a site called webclothes.com which was semi-useful, but it doesn't beat actually measuring something yourself.  If I lived closer, I would have measured my niece, but such is life.
I got some big awesome buttons for the coat, too, so it all worked out.

FiberLink has some very helpful charts:
