No Foolin’ – I Need Feedback!

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!

    Mine is about 10 1/2 inches.

    I’m 11 inches. For a non-sewer, this could take on a whole new meaning… 😉

    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…
