|Since my hubby's can be a difficult client, I had to find a way to make sure my husband's newest pieces would fit.
I pulled out a RTW undershirt, knowing that it was form-skimming a truer measure of his size than that XXL he gets for free when he donates blood.
I folded the shirt in half and laid each pattern piece on it to compare the measurements. (Don't forget your pattern piece also has a seam allowance and some ease figured in.) For more pics and uses, please click here
Boy am I glad I did this, beacuse as you can see in this photo, I traced the WRONG size based on finished garment measurements. That shoulder would have been way to narrow for him.
