We work in both cms and inches, so please choose the one that suits you best. If you have no preference, then in inches please.

Relax and don't pull the tape too tight. You want to measure your normal, comfortable posture. To begin, please tie a string or ribbon around your waist so that we can use this line to measure up and down. 

If you intend to wear a bra with the playsuit, wear it now for the measurements. 

Some of these measurements are essential, we've put these in bold and we can't make your pattern without them. Some are just fine tuning, so don't sweat it if you can't get an accurate one.


1. Measure down from the nape of the neck to the waist at the back.  



2. Measure around neckline    

3. Measure shoulders from point to point

7. Measure from shoulder to elbow.  

8. Measure sleeve length from your shoulder around your slightly bent elbow, down to where you want the sleeve to end. 

9. Measure around the largest part of your upper arm - doesn't have to be in the same place as this photo, we just need to know how wide to make the sleeve

10. Measure around the largest part of your forearm- and how far down from the shoulder is this?

11. Measure your wrist size



The key to getting the most movement in your catsuit is the perfect fitting of the armhole, technically this is called the armscye (pronounced arm's eye, the eye of the arm) - we're going to be getting this as close to your skin as possible, like this, only better.

12. Using tape as best you can what is your armscye length, width and depth?
