Measurements for Ladies 
(in inches please)

(Please include your full height in your measurements)

Copy the list below and enter the measurements against each dimension. 

For the most accurate results when measuring for a made-to-measure outfit, please ensure that you are wearing the underwear and shoes that you intend to wear with the outfit.

Measure the vertical distances on the side of the body, except the Back length, which is measured down the spine.

The second bust measurement is taken under the breasts, and used for more fitted outfits.

The dotted lines show the positions of the armholes on a Block. The upper end, above the ball joint of the shoulder, is the starting point for measuring the Long arm length for the Block sleeve. For sleeves of garments not planned from a Block, measure the Arm length from the tip of the shoulder.
