Shirt drafts using the Gnagy scaled Bara system

Submitted by Llewelyn ap Dafydd on November 4, 2015 - 12:38pm

Since meeting The Modern Maker, I've become slightly obsessed with the scaled bara measurement system that Mr Gnagy lays out in it.

I've decided to experiment a bit with it, and have redrafted my standard shirt layouts using it, rather than our pedestrian metric system.

I need to find some folks to mug to see whether the scaling works, and specifically whether I've rounded off assorted measurements in the correct directions as I've gone from metric to Bara.

When using these drafts, the measurements without asterisks are taken from the chest tape. The ones with asterisks are made using the length tape.
