For my fellow seamstresses: My measurements

So, I am going to post my stats here, as that is the one thing I always mis when I visit other seamstresses (Sewists? Sewingers? What is the right word here?) – I see all the beautiful things they make, but I want to know how it correspond to ME. Maybe, if I am lucky, they mention the size(s) they made, but without their measurements it doesn’t really help me. So, here we go:

I am 178 cm/ 5 feet, 10.08 inches. My measurements are bust 86 cm/ 34″, waist 71 cm/ 28″ and high hip 100 cm/ 40″, widest hip 105 cm/ 41″. My bra size is 25″ DD (this means that I often get fooled by the bust measurement, as even if it is large enough, my volume is not evenly distributed in the back and front).

My common adjustments are:

  • Square shoulder
  • Swayback
  • Low butt
  • Flatt butt
  • Tall/ lengthen
  • Long arms/ lengthen arms
