HOW TO MEASURE

JEANS

WAISTBAND (CORRECT)

waistband (correct)

Lay the jeans flat on a table or the floor. Twist the waistband 1/3 of its width, so it looks like in this picture. This is the easiest way of getting both the front and back side aligned to each other. Measure the top of the waistband and double this measurement.
