- BUST: Measure over the widest part of your chest.
- WAIST: Bend slightly to the side, place the measuring tape around where your bend is, and measure.
- HIPS: Place your feet hip-width apart, and measure around the fullest part of your hips.
*Your measurement tape should not be too tight or loose.
*** If you are in between sizes, and are using stretchy fabric, size down.
*** If you are working on a top piece, (blouse/dress) choose your pattern primarily based on your bust measurement, and you can adjust hip area and waist area if needed.
*** If you are working on a bottom piece, (skirt/pants) choose your size primarily based on your hip measurement and adjust waist area if needed.
