How to measure yourself

Learning to sew clothing requires body measurements. Some of them are a little difficult to do on your own…or are they?

Check out this video which shows you that it is entirely possible to get all the right measurements without a sewing buddy. No more excuses ladies! Get the right measurements so that you can buy and make patterns that actually fit your body.

Once you have all the right measurements, contact us or book a lesson with Sewing 4 Fun and we’ll help you with the sewing.

    Hi Linda. I just finished watching your video. Very informative. I would like to know where you find tape measures that have a 1 at each end. I have one, but have not been able to find another. Mine is getting very old and has suffered some injury, but it is still better than the others. If you have a source I would appreciate the information. Thanks again for the video.

      First of all that is not my video. I would have to say, just do a Google search for “zero center tape measures” and you will find several sites that sell them.
