I'm just starting to draft my own clothing patterns, and wanted one worksheet for all the measurements I'll need. I found a lot of info online about taking your measurements, but couldn't find a worksheet to jot them all down on, so I made my own!

If anyone wants a copy of the worksheet for themselves, I've posted it in pdf format on my blog here:

    What a super-cute diagram! Really nice to have the dotted lines to show me exactly where the measurements should be taken too! Thank you.

    I’d be interested to know if/when you create one for boys (i have a 7 and an 8 year old with drastically different bodies).

    That i-Phone has many benefits, huh? Too bad I can’t choose my own service provider, anyway, gedwood do you maybe know if I can use or down load that application to a PC? I think I would like to try it to customize pattern for my varied size family members. Thanks in advance for your trouble in getting back to me.

    Since I know what the measurements mean on the body, I don’t use a worksheet with diagram, but rather a measurement template on my i-Phone (within Notes) :

    For women :

    /Name/ waist x (y) hips x (y) bust x (y) underbust x y() neck2bp x (y) bp2bp x (y) overbust x (y) back x(y) waist2hips x (y) neck2waist x (y) sleeve x (y) w2ground x (y) neck x (y) w2knees x (y) leg inseam x (y) body rise x (y) armhole drop x (y) shoulder x (y) cuff x (y) Bra size :

    For men :

    /Name/ natural waist x (y) chest x (y) back x(y) waist2ground x (y) leg_inseam x (y) neck x (y) shirt_length x (y) sleeve_length x (y) armhole drop x (y) cuff_size x (y) cuff_depth x (y) shoulder x (y)

    My x values are in inches and my y values, in parentheses, are in centimeters – I switch back and forth between the two, depending on different needs, and find it convenient to have both measurements handy when working on a pattern.

    Whatever works for you, though. It IS interesting to share among different systems. Thanks for your post.
