How to Take Your Measurements

How to take your measurements

Posted by Mary Kaye Cole


Hi this is Mary Kaye Cole and I’m so excited about our first sewalong here at Phee Fabrics!So excited that I just had to blog about it!

I’m going to be using the lavender circular knit for my Mama Chloe and make the Maxi length. I plan to pair this with a white tee and low heeled shoes (if I wear any at all) for spring. I think Melissa will be doing the high low hack (Gorgeous – am I right!) and maybe she’ll be kind enough to share that with us during the sewalong. I’ve also heard of plans for a lace overlay, which I think will be beautiful too. I’d love to hear about your plans for the sewalong.

To get us ready for the sewalong, I put together a video showing how to take standard body measurements we use in sewing. It’s rather lengthy – 12 minutes Yikes – but I think it covers pretty much all the standard measurements we’ll use. We can use this video to refer to for all of our sewalongs instead of covering them each time. I’d love to hear your thoughts. look forward to sewing with you!



XOXO, Mary Kaye
