Tips for taking garment measurements
« on: October 12, 2018, 03:59:33 PM »

Here are some helpful tips for measuring dimensions of garments:

Always lay the garment on a flat surface for easier and more accurate measuring.
Make sure the garment is not stretched in any way when laid flat as this will skew results.
Take the initial measurements before the garment is fitted on a model or dummy.
Take all stretched measurements at the end.
Ensure that the measuring tape is touching the surface of the fabric when taking measurements.
Always lay the garment openings in a way that does not have the seams positioned at each end. Make sure they are slightly shifted inwards.
