User-Friendlier Measurement Worksheet

I don’t know about you, but I don’t look like this. I’m not 9 or even 8-1/2 heads tall. I wish my legs were as long as that! So, even though it’s just a drawing to jot down my measurements, I wanted something that looked more like me…well, maybe with some of the not-so-toned belly muscles shaved off a bit.

I searched the Internet a bit more. And, yes, I found a few other options, but not very inspiring. I felt like Golidlocks.

Too bottom-heavy

Kind of alien-looking...and too busty for the chubby one that I would use.

!

Too bland...hellooo, talk about leaving it to the imagination

Then I found it! One that I could use and would make me smile.

Keyka Lou‘s sewing blog covers everything from quilting to crafts to fashion sewing. And she has a cute drawing for a measurement croquis that isn’t modeled after an Amazonian princess nor like a couch potato (hmmm, reminder to self to do my Tae Bo DVD today). I love how she’s even covered up with pretty undergarments. It’s that kind of detailing that makes me smile and gets me in the mood to sew.
