How to measure for custom made clothing

Height:

For the correct height have your child take = their shoes off and measure them against a wall.

Chest

The chest measurement is taken around the fullest part of the chest. Be sure the tape is straight across the back.

Waist

Measure around the natural waist.

Hip

Measure around the fullest part of the hips.

Shoulder and Arm Length

Determine the neckline. Bend the child's arm slightly. Measure the shoulder width from the neckline to the bone at the tip of the shoulder, write down this measurement.

Then, without moving the tape, and with the arm slightly bent, measure the arm over the elbow down to the wrist bone. Deduct the shoulder width to determine the arm length.

Shirt Length

Measure from the neckline down to the length you want the garment to be.

Pant Length

For the length of the pants, measure the child's side from the waist to the length you wish the pants to be.

You also need to know the length of the inside leg seam. Measure from the crotch down to length you wish the pants to be.
