Measurement worksheet for garments

Here's a little worksheet that will be a great help in making garments that fit. There's a cut "paper doll" drawing, with dotted lines and numbers for every area that you should measure. Then numbers and labels in a column, and a place for you to write in your numbers. There's even a few blank spaces at the bottom for you to add your own areas, maybe a head circumference for when you create hats. For those of us with extensive garment construction background all the terms should be familiar. For crocheters who don't have a lot of clothing construction experience, they might have to do a little research to know what armhole drop or rise mean, and exactly how to measure for those. I think that I'll print out a few copies and put them into the binder I've created for sweater making.
