Sewing: Marking Meaning


The circle with the cross in it is a measuring point – generally it references bust point, waistline, or (in this case) bicep.

It also has numbers underneath that are *very* important – these numbers represent the **actual** measurement of the area in question.  This doesn’t include wearing ease.  This doesn’t include style ease (aka drape).  This is the straight-up measurement.

That’s what this little bit of numbers means, and you need to know it.  🙂

Have a good day in sewing, folks!
