About TheMeasuringTape

Sales 183
On Etsy since 2007

Just make it!

The Measuring Tape is a small home-based enterprise, specializing in hand-made corsets and bespoke clothing for special events. I am a work-at-home-mom-one-woman operation. But I could not do this without the support of my family, friends and loyal customers from all over the world.

I have always been the sort to try my hand at making (and maybe improving) something I want rather than just going out to buy it. This includes food, furniture, toys for my kid when she was little, and all manner of sewn and knitted goods. It's the process of discovery which I enjoy more than anything else, and also the great satisfaction at accomplishing something that works.

To that end, I've also started teaching drafting and sewing because I want to commune with like-minded souls. If you're so inclined, I offer an online course on drafting here (see listing) and elsewhere (see blog).

So happy making and don't worry about the end result. Enjoy the process (of discovery) instead and you'll find that you can do more than you thought possible.

    I started sewing at 9 years old. Yes, I was that child who cut old table cloths to make floral printed dresses for her stuffed animals. Two decades later, I quit a steady career in teaching to start my own tiny business in the apparel industry.

I take great pains and effort in building you a quality corset and creating a pattern. Please:

1. DO NOT RESELL them commercially without my permission. I welcome wholesale enquiries and provide a discount for bulk orders.

2. DO NOT RETAG with your own label and sell them as such.

3. DO NOT USE pictures of the corsets/patterns posted on my shop without due reference to THE MEASURING TAPE and/or modify the pictures in any way to pass them off as your own.

Many of us who sell on ETSY are small home-based businesses. It would be appreciated if you do not exploit that.

THANK YOU and HAPPY SHOPPING!
