How to measure your pattern?
(WPB FLA, USA)
I want to learn to sew, and everyone tells me to measure my pattern itself to make sure that it fits my measurements. So how do I do that?
Answer: It is true your usual size may not be the same size as a finished sewn item. By taking your measurements and following the back of a pattern measurement chart you will ensure you are making the correct size for you.
Here is how you take your measurements.
Now on the back of your pattern it will have a size chart, use the measurements you just made to determine what the correct fit is.
