How to measure the torso

We often use the torso measurement to adjust the bodice length of patterns. Whether for leotards or blouses, this measurement is really important.

How to properly measure the torso:

1- Place the tape measurement on the shoulder, go around the body passing through the strongest point of the bust and come back on the shoulder.

2- Repeat on the other shoulder

3- Use the larger measurement of the 2 measurements in the measurement chart to find your size for the length of your garment.

Happy sewing!
