I’m off work again today, so I went to Alterations by Nora and had my measurements taken. Here are the numbers:
bust 36 1/2
under bust 31
Man, that waist one kills me. She actually measured lower than the actual waist, asking instead where I wear my pants. The hip measurement is 3″ bigger than when I took it, and the bust is 2 1/2″ bigger, so I definitely see the reason for not taking your own measurements.
Let’s see what pattern sizes I am:
Waist: 20 (ouch)
Now, that bust measurement is full bust, so I’m still not sure what size to use. I’ve been making size 12 and I suppose it’s fine, from what little I understand about fit. I’ve made 14 in pants and skirts, but it’s always too big. So I guess not many questions have been answered. On that note, I’m now going to make a knit tunic in a size 12…
