This measurement is different to the waist measurement you take for a shirt or jacket (around the stomach). The Pants Waist measurment is taken around your waist at the point where you normally wear your pants. Some people wear their pants high and others low. So first determine where on your waist your normally wear your pants, and then measure around the waist at that point.
Measure around the hip and buttocks at the widest point.
For this measurement, the tape measure needs to go through the legs. Start at the middle front of your pants waistline and run the tape measure under your legs round to the top of your buttocks. Finish the measurement at the center of your pants waistline.
Measure the fell length of your pants down the side, starting from the very top. Measure down to the bottom of your foot. Pants will be made to this exact measurement.
Measure around your thigh as high up the leg as possible, right at the crotch.
Wrap the tape measure around the knee. Keep the leg relatively straight for this measurement.
Measure around the calf at the widest point. This is usually about 3/4 up the lower leg.
This measurement varies a lot on the style of pants you want. Measure across the bottom hem of one of the legs of the pants. This will determine how tight your pants will be around your ankle. Note this measurement cannot always be followed exactly, as it depends heavily on your calf measurement. As we do not use stretchy fabrics, and must follow the contours of the pants pattern, we may have to make slight adjustments.
