Ok. So, now we want to take the circumference of our leg in three places. And, the three places are at the fullest part of the thigh, the knee and then the fullest part of the calf. So, that is if you have your measurement length wise for your pattern you?re going to want it different points at the fullest points cross wise. So, let me go ahead and measure my thigh. Again, you're going to want to do this the same as you did your bust, waist and hip with a little bit of room. And, I am just going to remember the number. Because, I am going to do all three. So, we have nineteen, and then we have thirteen and thirteen and a half. So, those are the three key measurements for the legs. I'm going to write them down.
