The Art of Measuring

 If you measure well, it cuts much time and work after you cut the garment.  Measuring is the key skill to maximizing your income by saving time and meeting customer expectations on the first try -- they know you have paid attention to their individual body characteristics. In times past, it was a mark of social standing to appear in clothing that fit perfectly -- still today, a good fit is a key feature of expensive clothing.


This book is the original guide to professional measuring used by tailors to fit each customer perfectly.  There are detailed explanations of different body types, including stouts, charts of average measurements for both men and women and relative proportions, accompanied by diagrams of tape placement for accuracy and consistency.  Originally published by Tailor and Cutter Limited, London, England.
