When measuring circumference, use a seamstress measuring tape, pull it snug to get the most accurate measurements possible. Do not add ease, pull the measuring tape taut so the measurements are accurate (but not too tight that you are uncomfortable). I add ease to the measurements depending on the garment design, every design requires different amounts of ease or room to breathe. Measure over the undergarment you are planning on wearing under the dress. It helps to have someone to assist or go to an alterations shop for professional measurements if needed.
When measuring the under-bust make sure to measure the area on the torso just above the natural waist but below the bust area. The under-bust can also be defined as a high-waist around the ribcage.
When measuring length from shoulder to ideal hem: start the measurement tape at the top of the mid shoulder (see attached guide) hold it in place then run it along the front side and down til you reach the ideal length. If you are having any issues determining the length you can always measure a dress in your closet (from shoulder seam to hem) that you like the length of.
