Measure the seam line you just drew with a tape measure or ruler. Measure the line starting from center front to side seam. For a size 36 on this pattern we measured 9 1/4". Now you need to take that number and multiply it by 4 to get the full waist circumference. We got 37 (9.25 X 4 = 37). Note and remember this number. You need to separate the pattern at the peplum seam and add seam allowance to edges.
