    While "rectangle" may not be a natively-supported shape, at least I match an actual pattern size. (6-8, no less! Who woulda thunk, seeing as I'm a 0-1 at best, or children's M-L, when shopping for clothes. Stupid vanity sizing.) And at 5'1", it means I can just sew my pants shorter and save money on fabric! Really, it makes me wish I'd thought to sew my own clothes long ago, instead of subjecting myself to the frustration of clothes shopping.

      Hi Quinn! Thanks, as always, for using creative commons to share your images. I'm using this one and another photo of yours ( in grayscale in the interior of the sociology journal Contexts to illustrate, respectively, a short precis of new academic research on the inconsistency in women's clothing sizes and on the use of science fiction in sociological thought and classrooms. The photos are both credited to you (Quinn Dombrowski, Flickr CC) and captioned as follows:

      Measuring tape: Inconsistent clothing sizes reinforce the perception that some sizes are "better" than others.

      I'd be so happy to send a copy of the journal when it publishes in early August (either hard copy or PDF). Please email me at with your preference and mailing address.

      All the best,
