How To Take Measurements

Take measurements using this measurement video.

    • Locate the waist line by tying a cord around the natural waist line.
    • Identify the waist line from the back.
    • Do not drop the cord to the navel if the navel has dropped below the natural waist line. That will give you poor fitting results.
    • Take exact measurements.
    • You can add ease for comfort later during the pattern making stage.
    • Record measurements as you take them.
    • Don’t take your own measurements. Let someone else take them.
    • Wear good under garments when taking measurements.
    • These measurements do not need to be take again unless there is a change in the body form.
    • These measurements can be used for all clothing except hats and shoes.

Pattern PDF – Print to Actual Scale

The pattern PDFs may print slightly smaller if the printer configuration is not adjusted before printing. When you want to print your pattern. Double-click on the pattern. It will open in the browser window.

  • Select printer.
  • Select pattern print size – A4.
  • Click on more settings to choose to print your pattern to the actual scale

After a successful PDF pattern sale, the client called to complain that the pattern was not the size we sold it as.  However, several checks of the original pattern showed that the sizing was correct. But printing from the browser, we also got a reduced scale pattern. It took a lot of time and playing around with print settings and finally, a search online which showed that it was a problem many people had encountered.

The solution was to change the browser print settings to print the pattern in its right scale.

The steps are illustrated in this video.
