Before you start sewing any product you need to take measurements. A professional dressmaker knows that if you take the measurements correctly-this is half the success. And even if you've never done it, strictly following the instructions below, you can do it quickly enough.

Important: before you start taking measurements, wear the underwear that you intend to wear under this product. Tie around the waist a thin cloth bake or elastic band - this simple technique is used by all professional dressmakers. It facilitates the removal of measurements associated with the waistline. Be careful not to neglect it!

  • Stand straight, without tension, do not slouch.
  • Do not put your fingers under the measuring tape, it distorts the measurement!
  • If you want a suit without a stand, sleeves, etc. put in the box of the corresponding measure "0".
