Step 3: Measurements

Picture of Measurements
At this point you will need to take your measurements to get an idea of the sizing of your jacket pattern. If you have a form, this can be useful, though it is not necessary - I did not use a form to create my jacket pattern. However, I did base the jacket design off of another jacket that I have - this is very helpful for those of us who are not actually fashion designers!

You will need to measure your bust/chest, waist and hips as well as the following as shown in the diagram below:

1. Neck to Shoulder

2. Shoulder Width

3. Back Width

4. Waist Length

5. Jacket Length

6. Over Arm

7. Shoulder to Elbow

8. Sleeve Outseam

9. Sleeve Inseam

10. Wrist

11. Bicep
