A tip for taking 1 of the 24 measurements that’s really important: that’s the front waist length. Take a piece of tape and put it right across the bust from apex to apex. When you take the measurement, start at the base of the neck and go down over this tape, which is called a bridge, down to the center front to the waist. We need to know the length that is taken up when the fabric drapes and the way that it would when you sew a garment.

BEST explanation I've read yet on adjusting the tension on your sewing machine! Simple and easy to remember. Tighten the tension and "pull the knots up" if the knots appear on the bottom side of the sewn seam. Loosen the tension and "drop the knots down" if the knots are on the top surface. Higher number = tighter, lower number = looser.
