Sewing that's Retro, Geek, and Chic
No joke, it’s April Fool’s Day and I need your “humerus” – measurement that is.
I’m working on my mock-up of the vintage wrap pattern I wrote about Friday, and I need some feedback from my female readers to make sure I make the most universal adjustment to the pattern.
I would like to take a casual poll to gather data on upper arm length (since arms are never included in general sewing measurement charts).
So grab a ruler and help me out! =)
Measure your upper arm from the shoulder joint to your inner elbow where your arm bends, like in this photo:
Then leave me a comment on this post or on Custom Style’s Facebook page with your measurement.
Thanks! I greatly appreciate your help!
I come up with 11″.
Mine is about 10 1/2 inches.
I’m 11 inches. For a non-sewer, this could take on a whole new meaning… 😉
LOL – I cannot stop laughing!
Thank you all so much!
My arm measures at 11 inches (but I have long arms for someone my size!) and I got measurements by phone from two others who were both 10 inches. Interesting results…
Thanks! It’s really helpful to get a decent assortment of measurements. =)
