Measuring for Children
Measure preferably in centimeters (the small number on your measuring tape), do not mathematically convert inches into centimeters. If your tape has only inches, use those. Please do not mix the two types of units.
Measurements for dresses and bodices must be taken over period correct underpinnings. A corset is necessary when measuring for a ball gown or other low bodiced dress and should also be worn in measuring for any other bodice if you’re planning to wear this with a corset.
Get a friend to help you if possible. Some of these measurements are virtually impossible to do on your own.
Use the form below to record your measurements and email them to Kay. If you prefer to send your measurements by “snail mail”, click here for the printer friendly version of the form.
Each measurement description on the form below has a clickable link with instructions and photographs to help you as you measure. You might find it easier to print out the full childrens’ measuring instructions brochure first and read through them.
