How to Take Measurements

     This thread was inspired by Bronwen's post of LovableDoll measurements. :)

     From Bronwen's post:

     Here are a few ways to determine clothes sizes for any doll. Keep in mind that clothing manufacturers do not all agree on sizes.

     In order to print the ring sizer above, be sure that your printer is set to 100%. Make sure that you have not reduced the print size in your printer 'page setup' area. You can verify that the sizer printed correctly by measuring it with a ruler; it should measure from left to right: 3 1/2 inches.

     DETERMINING YOUR RING SIZE:  To determine your ring size:

1.  Cut a strip of paper five inches (5") long and one-half inch (1/2") wide (3 cm by 10 cm).

2.  Wrap the paper strip around the base of the appropriate finger.

3.  Use a pen or pencil to mark the point on the paper where the outside end of the paper strip overlaps (forming a complete circle).

4.  With a ruler, measure the length from the outside end to the mark on the paper to the nearest 1/16" of an inch or millimeter, rounding up if necessary.

5.  Find the closest measurement on the size chart in inches or millimeters and look to the far left column to determine your ring size.
