     pattern  measurement:

 

   In order to execute

the patterns perfectly, it is important

to take proper measurements.

- Hold the tape measure firmly

but not too tightly, making sure

that it is lying flat against the body.


- Put a string or ribbon

around the waist,
to indicate the exact location.


This to determine accurately:


1) the waist length of the back


2) the waist length of the front

 

The lengths cannot be divided.

Write your measurements in inch or cm please
