How the Ultimate Measuring Guide Works
You’ll start with circumference measurements. Then you’ll take “quarter body” measurements to see how your left and right, back and front differ. Next, you’ll take diagonal and curved measurements to capture these dimensions. Finally, you’ll take vertical measurements to assess height and length.
Measurements marked with * are especially useful for mature figures, as we tend to need more room in these areas as we age.
You will need:
Several yards of ribbon, string or narrow elastic to mark body guideposts
A flexible tape measure
Chalk or about 20 safety pins for marking
Paper and a pencil or pen to write down measurements
A helper who can read a tape measure. Your helper doesn’t have to know anything about sewing. Anyone who can read a tape measure can help.
About an hour to set up and take all the measurements.
