This video shows how to take body measurements, choose a pattern, and purchase the notions and supplies.

Body Measurements

On a piece of paper write down the following:

With a soft cloth or vinyl tape measure:
Bust = Measure around the fullest part of the bust.
Waist = Measure around the waist
Hips = Measure the fullest part of the hips.

These are the three basic measurements when picking out a pattern.
