Hey y’all – this month we’re going to be talking about fitting and drafting, and that starts with correct measurements, so today I’m going to show you how to take measurements for women.
I decided to make a video about this, because no matter how many diagrams some people see, I discovered in my years teaching that many women measure a couple of key points incorrectly – namely the waist and the hips. I’ll also give some tips on more unusual measurements and why you take them, as well as show you some tricks for measuring yourself.
You can watch the video below, or if for some reason it won’t load, you can also watch it here on YouTube.
To download the measurement card to write these measurements down for yourself, just click the image below. That will bring up the PDF that you can print. Please don’t share the PDF; instead, share the link to this post and have people come here to get their own copy.
