I lost a tried and true set of measurements and have had to start all over again, both alone and with the help of a generous but non-sewing buddy. I recall once reading online instructions from someone on how to measure one's self but I can't recall even a little bit of them.
My main question is about the length of my shoulder and my shoulder slope. Where does the shoulder end EXACTLY? I've tried hanging the measuring and drawing a line, measuring from the base of my neck and just guessing.
And, in order to best judge my shoulder slopes, WHERE is my 'natural' waist anyway? I've read that it's about an inch above the navel and also that it's the deepest indent when you bend sharply to the side. Which is it really??
