How to take measurements

This is a long time request im getting all the time from my viewers, how to take measurements for pattern making seams to be a simple task, but some people still have some doubts about it, si i prepare a tutorial showing the proper way to take every body measurement.

The measurements can be divided in 3 categories:

*Contours:
Is the measurement around specific part of the body, such as waist, hips, bust, neck, etc.

* Widths and Lengths:
These are the measurements we take starting from one point to another in 2 dimensions, for example: leg length, arm length, shoulders width, etc.

*Auxiliary measures:
This measurements help us to make our patterns, using them as a direct reference to the body to be sure that the final garment will suits our body in a perfect way. Neckline length, armhole contour, armhole length etc.
