Bespoke tailoring is a traditional way of making clothes by hand on the basis of an individual pattern. A
pattern is the construction plan for the different parts of a garment created with body measurements,
which take into consideration the unsymmetrical shape of the human form. This means that a tailor will
measure the circumference of the chest, the waist, the back, and the seat, as well as the length and
circumference of both legs and arms. He will also find the exact position for the armholes and the
degree of slope of the shoulders. In addition, he or she will check the front and the side balance,
meaning he will notice whether the customer is bent forward, whether he has a very upright position or
a very rounded back.
