MEASURING THE BUST: MEASURE YOUR BUST AT THE FULLEST POINT AROUND YOUR BREASTS. THE MEASURING TAPE SHOULD BE PARALLEL TO THE FLOOR AND GO PAST BOTH YOUR NIPPLES, UNDER THE ARMHOLE, OVER THE SHOULDER BLADES, AND AROUND YOUR BACK WHERE THE BRA STRAP IS. WHEN YOU MAKE THIS MEASUREMENT WEAR A BRA TO GET THE CORRECT BUST MEASUREMENTS.

Measuring the bust

MEASURING THE SHOULDERS: WHEN YOU MEASURE THE SHOULDERS LENGTH, MAKE SURE YOU MEASURE THE DISTANCE BETWEEN YOUR SHOULDERS AT THE WIDEST POINT ON THE BACK

Measuring the shoulders

MEASURING THE WAIST: TO FIND YOUR NATURAL WAISTLINE, BEND TO ONE SIDE. WHEN YOU DO, A CREASE WILL APPEAR WHICH SHOULD BE BELLOW YOUR RIBCAGE. TAKE THE MEASURING TAPE AND MEASURE FROM THAT CREASE AROUND THE NARROWEST PART OF YOUR WAISTLINE. KEEP THE TAPE PARALLEL TO THE FLOOR. 

Measuring the waist

MEASURING THE HIPS: MEASURE YOUR HIPS AT THE FULLEST PART OF YOUR BACKSIDE AND WRAP THE MEASURING TAPE ALL AROUND. THE FRONT SIDE OF THE MEASURING TAPE SHOULD BE APPROXIMATELY JUST ABOVE WHERE YOUR LEGS MEET THE TORSO. KEEP THE TAPE PARALLEL TO THE FLOOR.

Measuring the Hips

MEASURING THE ARM CIRCUMFERENCE: PLACE THE TAPE MEASURE AROUND THE WIDEST PART OF YOUR UPPER ARM - YOUR BICEP. THEN BEND YOUR ARM SLIGHTLY, AT THE ELBOW. THIS WILL ALLOW THE SLEEVE TO HAVE A LITTLE WIGGLE ROOM SO IT DOESN'T GET TOO TIGHT. IF YOU WANT THE SLEEVE TO BE VERY TIGHT KEEP THE TAPE GLUED TO YOUR ARM. IF YOU WANT IT TO BE A BIT LOSE, PUT ONE FINGER BETWEEN THE TAPE AND THE ARM.

Measuring the arm circumference

MEASURING THE LENGTH: MEASURE FROM WHERE YOUR SHOULDER MEETS YOUR NECK AND DOWN ALONG YOUR BODY TO THE TIP OF THE BUST FOR SHOULDER TO BUST LENGTH. FOR ANY OTHER LENGTH MEASUREMENTS MEASURE FROM THE SHOULDER TO WHERE THE FINISHED HEM SHOULD BE.

Measuring the length

MEASURING THE SLEEVE LENGTH: WHEN YOU MEASURE THE SLEEVE LENGTH MAKE SURE YOU PUT THE MEASURING TAPE AT THE TOP OF YOUR ARM AND MEASURE THE LENGTH TO WHERE YOU WANT THE FINISHED HEM TO BE.

Measuring the sleeve length

MEASURING THE INNER SEAM: WHEN YOU MEASURE THE INNER SEAM, MAKE SURE TO MEASURE THE LENGTH OF YOUR INNER LEG FROM THE CROTCH TO WHERE YOU WANT THE FINISHED HEM TO BE.

Measuring the inner seam

MEASURING THE TOTAL RISE: STAND UPRIGHT. POSITION THE TAPE VERTICALLY AND PLACE IT SO THAT IT STARTS AT THE CENTER OF THE WAIST. FROM THERE MEASURE DOWN TO THE CROTCH AREA. MAKE SURE THE TAPE ISN'T TOO TIGHT OR TOO LOOSE. IF YOU WANT A HIGHER WAIST, MEASURE FROM YOUR WAISTLINE. IF YOU WANT A LOWER WAIST, MEASURE FROM WHERE YOU WANT YOUR WAISTLINE TO BE.

Measuring the total rise

MEASURING THE OUTER SEAM: WHEN YOU MEASURE THE OUTER SEAM, MAKE SURE TO MEASURE THE LENGTH FROM THE WAISTLINE TO WHERE YOU WANT THE FINISHED HEM TO BE.
