Last fall when I shared these five handy sewing reference charts to save and print, I had a request from a reader for one more… an at-a-glance chart showing conversions from fractions to decimals for all of those measurements we use frequently when sewing.

At long last, here’s that chart!

    Thank you for sharing the fraction to decimal chart. I am going to laminate it and hang it up or put it in my book of tips.

    thanks for this – this is awesome! one note tho – the 2/16 is incorrect – is currently .0125, should be .125 (same as 1/8)
