How to Measure

As most of my patterns do not have a lot of ease, you can sew the size closest to your personal measurements. When in doubt, measure your pattern pieces.

Take three points of measure

1. Chest/Bust

2. Waist

3. Hips

 

Chest 

Bring the tape measure up and around the fullest part of your bust. Ensure you keep the measuring tape straight as you record the number so that it doesn’t dip at the back.

Waist

Measure the narrowest part of your torso.  At that point, take the tape measure and wrap it around your body. Once again making sure the tape measure is level and that it is snug, not tight.

Hips

Measure the narrowest part of your torso.  At that point, take the tape measure and wrap it around your body. Once again making sure the tape measure is level and that it is snug, not tight.
