Pattern Sizing Tutorial by koumori-no-hime Pattern Sizing Tutorial by koumori-no-hime
This was a quickie so, unlike the others, it does not have an anime theme to it. This is just a short little tutorial on how to measure yourself when buying sewing patterns. -koumori

Tutorial made by me. Do not reproduce.

All very helpful tips and things I wish I had known when starting to work with patterns (I of course know them now) ;P
The hip endearment is always a tricky one - I too measure the hips as you do - at the widest part of one's lower half, but sometimes the "hip" measurement is at the pants waistline - which I why I really wished patterns differentiated between upper hips (pants waistline) and lower hips (the bum region)

I like what a simple guide this is, but that waist measurement looks awfully high. I realize everyone's natural waist is in a slightly different place, but in my experience, it is usually closer to the belly button than it is to the bust. I know you say 'the narrowest part', but the image may be misleading or confusing for the beginners this tutorial targets.

Yes, thank you. This tutorial is pretty old. When I re-write it I will try to make the drawings more anatomically correct. Thank for the input!
