Bags are done and will be mailed/delivered shortly. Its time to get on with the jeans. If you aren't in the area and I can't measure you up here is what I need from you. Tried to make this as simple as possible. If you don't have a tape measure (construction one will work fine,) use a piece of string and measure it with a yard stick or something. If you need more help than what I describe below just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It may be easiest if you take a fit that you like and just measure them up. I will send out a survey after this to everyone that got jeans asking for these 8 measurements. Lets do this in inches people, or give me fair warning if you are getting metric on me....
In order of appearance.
THE WAIST - keep this one tight to the skin... the tighter the better as everything does stretch a little... Be sure to button em up before you do the measurement so you don't get the extra overlap in the measurement...
FRONT RISE - Front top to crotch seam....
BACK RISE - Back top to crotch seam....
HIPS - Generally the widest part or halfway through the fly....
LENGTH - Outer seam from top to bottom...
HIPS - Two inches down from the crotch inseam, straight across...
KNEE - the knee width...
ANKLE - the ankle opening...
A dozen small totes done, almost done with the bigger ones as well, then its on to jeans. I decided not to grade my pattern and make patterns for everyone and have them on the shelf. So still need to send instructions on what i need for the jeans awards. Expect that soon. The machines are great, huge time savers....
