In order to improve the fit in the upper end of our size range (sizes G-J), Blueprints is looking for a fit model in the Boston, MA or Providence, RI area.

What is a fit model?

A fit model is used by clothing designers to check the fit of patterns created on computers and/or dress forms. Not only can a fit model help fine tune the fit of clothing, but unlike a dress form, they can report on a design's comfort, style, and more. Since patterns can only be created in a certain number of sizes, a fit model has to have measurements that are in line with a specific size in the range. I wish I could make a pattern perfectly fit to every person I encounter, but there aren't enough hours in the day (and it would be impossible to fit that much paper in a cute envelope!)

No modeling experience is required to be a fit model for Blueprints. You just have to be a real person who doesn't mind - or better yet, enjoys - being measured and pinned. I am currently looking for a fit model for sizes G-J, so please only apply if your full bust measurement is between 40-46".

If you're interested in being a part of the pattern making process, apply below! Please provide measurements within .25 (1/4) inches.

Measure around your chest, with the measuring tape under your arms and above your breasts.
Measure around the fullest part of your bust. To get an accurate measurement, make sure your arms are down rather than up.
Measure around your natural waist. Your natural waist is situated between the bottom of your ribs and top of your hip bones. Another way to find your natural waist is to bend sideways and find the crease in your side.
Measure around the fullest part of your hips. This is in a different location on everybody, but usually between 6-11" from the waist. if your spot is lower or higher, find the closest place to measure within 6-11" from your waist.
Find a helper for this one or measure on a dress that fits you well! Measure from the base of your neck to your natural waist. If you have an indent between your shoulder blades, make sure to hold the tape out from your back slightly to get a more accurate measurement.
