Measurement Guide

This how to measure guide may be helpful if you would like to engage in a fit check with me, I am happy to assist you in determining if a garment is a good fit for you, just follow the steps below and contact me with your specs.

Measurement Guide steps 1-2-3

With measuring tape relaxed (meaning no slack but no squeezing either) tell me in inches what is your:

  • #1 - Bust at the largest point
    (shown with blue tape in photo above on the left side)
  • #2 - Waist at smallest point
    (shown with the white tape, and note that the waist at its smallest point is located a little higher than where a jean pant waistband positions)
  • #3 - Butt at largest point
    (yellow tape positioned at the mid to lower hip area)
  • #4 - Total body height
    (includes your head and is without shoes)

Also when applicable #5 your shoe height preference
(an other than average 1 to 2 inches heel height such as flats, 3 or more inch heels, as this can affect overall falling length)


More info and details:

Lengths are conveyed with a measurement from the middle of the shoulder seam to the bottom edge, (as I have displayed with the blue tape in the photo below on the left).

  • Note that the tape starting at (zero) mark is at the bottom to get a feel for where the garment falls at the floor.
  • Also note that the tape is draping over the body and including the dimension from the bust shaping.
  • Wearing a light T-shirt, or something with a seam line across the shoulder line is optimal to locating the finishing measure point.

    The yellow tape displays a waist to floor measure is sometimes stated for garments with no defined shoulder seam line (such as a strapless dress).

    Sleeves are measured from the joining line at the shoulder to the bottom of the wrist edge (as the arrow shows in the above photo on the right.

    Looking forward to setting up a form and see how you look!
