Abstract

Studies on anthropometric body measurements become very important because of the numerous garment fit problems the readyto- wear industry is facing. The purpose of this paper was to create an anthropometric sizing system specifically for female Ethiopian secondary school aged 16-19 years in order to develop accurate systems for developing fitted and comfortable clothes. A total of 36 bodies measurements were taken based on international standards from various schools in Bahir Dar. Descriptive statistics has been applied to develop the sizing system by using SPSS (Statistical Packages for Social Science) and to obtain five sizes of a body measurement table. Correlations were also used to determine the relationship between the body dimensions and the selection of key dimensions for the size chart. A step by step procedure is used to generate size limits, size codes and various size charts. This pilot study has produced five main sizing systems to provide a reference for the design and production of different apparels including uniforms for Ethiopian high school girls. The study will highly benefit from the design and production of different apparels including uniforms for Ethiopian high school girls and serve as a guideline for Apparel manufacturers to generate proper sizing system.
