Choosing the size for the pattern

While ordering, please check your sizes against our Measurements Instructions.

How to make the measurements and where to find them, please follow the instructions below:

1. Neck base half-girth:

full girth of the neck base is measured from the back by the 7th cervical vertebra acantha, and in the front – over the jugular fossa.

2. Chest half-girth I:

he first full chest girth is measured. From the back, a centimeter measuring tape is placed over the lower shoulder blades corners, and in the front the tape goes over the bust base

3. Chest half-girth II:

The second full chest girth is measured. From the back, a centimeter measuring tape is placed over the lower shoulder blades corners, and in the front the tape goes over the bust-points.

Выбор размера для выкройки

Chest girths I and II should be measured directly in the sequence, with no moving the measuring tape.

4. Chest half-girth III:

the third full chest girth is measured. The tape should go horizontally around the trunk over the bust-points and be closed on the chest right front part. The value of this chest measurement determines the figure’s size.

5. Waist half-girth:

the full waist girth is measured in a strictly horizontal plane (by a tied shoelace).

5 Напівобхват талії

6. Hip half-girth:

full hip girth is measured. A measuring centimeter tape should go strictly horizontally around the hip: from the back – by the highest buttocks’ points, in the front – with considering the abdomen projection

6 Напівобхват стегон

7. Bust width:

it is measured by the horizontal line over the bust base between the vertical lines, conditionally drawn upward from the front corners of the armpits

8. Back length to the waist line:

it is measured from the neck point along the backbone till the waistline. We should set up the point where the backbone starts crossing the waistline

8 Довжина спини до лінії талії

9. Front length till the waistline and, correspondingly, the neck to bust-point length.

9 Довжина переду до лінії талії

10 Chest height

9, 10 measurements are taken simultaneously. The centimeter tape runs from the base of the neck (7 cervical vertebrae) at the base of the neck through the highest point of the chest to the horizontal cord at the waist. At the same time determine the measure of breast height to its highest point.

10 Висота грудей

11 Центр грудей

horizontal distance between the bust-points

11 Центр грудей

12 Slash shoulder height:

it is measured by the shortest distance from the point where the waistline crosses the backbone, to the shoulder point (the measuring tape is kept in the tight condition)

12 Висота плеча коса

13 Back width:

it is a horizontal distance across the blades between the armpits’ back corners

13 Ширина спини

14 Shoulder width:

it is measured from the neck base to the shoulder end point. The measure determines a design solution for the product shoulder girdle.

14 Ширина плеча

15 Sleeve length:

it is measured from the shoulder end point along the exterior shoulder surface and forearm to the desirable sleeve length level. We recommend to measure it together with the shoulder length measurement

15 Довжина рукава

16 Shoulder girth:

it is measured by the free hanging arm stretching perpendicular to the shoulder axis (part of the arm from the shoulder point to the elbow point) in such a way, that the upper end of the measuring tape touches the back corner of the armpit.

16 Обхват плеча

17 Wrist girth:

it is measured perpendicular to the forearm axis on the wrist-joint level

17 Обхват зап'ястя

18 Product length:

it is measured in the middle of the back from the 7th cervical vertebra to the desirable length level

18 Довжина виробу

19 Front chest width II:

it is measured horizontally over the bust-points to the vertical lines, conditionally drawn downwards from the armpits’ front corners
