How to measure for wool: A picture tutorial

I did this for my site so customers could see how to measure, so I thought I would post this to help anyone else out

First, I measure the waist. Here it states my DD's waist is 16", but I personally like to go bigger with a drawstring waist:


For the rise, you start in the back and put the measuring tape where you want the back of the woolies to fall:


Bring the measuring tape around to the front (while still holding it in the back). Bring it all the way up to where you want the top of the pants to be (belly button is a good place to stop at):


Inseam is measured from the crotch to where you want the pants/shorts/capris to fall:


Thigh is measured around the fattest part of the thigh:


Hips are measured about mid diaper, around the fattest part of the diaper to accommodate the CD booty:


HTH for someone who needs a visual on how to measure for woolies!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I cannot tell you how many times (ok, 3 to be exact) mamas have sent me measurements for customs, sworn they were correct, only to ask to return them for a replacement/refund, because they didn't fit because of bad measurements.

And for the really impaired (like me) how do you suggest measuring the hips?
