Cheat Sheet for Alcega Farthingale Hoop Sizes

I wrote this a little while back.  It’s simply a chart of hoop sizes to mimic the  shape and angle of the Alcega farthingale.  The chart is indexed by waist size and waist to ground measurement.  The full story of all the maths used to create this chart is available here.This file used to be attached to the end of the article only.  I thought it might want to live a life of its own….

You can download this file for free, but I would really appreciate it if you wanted to make a donation.
