Dear Constant Reader,
Happy Friday! Here’s your tip!
Have a friend take your measurements.
The measurements will be more accurate because you can just stand still while someone else who can move around you makes sure the tape is in the right place and reads the results. When you’re measuring yourself, there’s always the chance the results will be slightly distorted since it’s hard to hold the tape on yourself without contorting a bit.
Also, a friend will give a more honest reading than you might give yourself.
Accurate measurements mean better fitting costumes, whether you’re making or buying.
