Are you a cheese or a ham person?
I have a close friend who loves cheese. And I mean she really loves cheese. She can have it on any meal, at any time of day or night. Her groceries list always includes some Grana Padano or a portion of Brie, o a bit of Cheddar. She can have it on toasts, with pasta, on a steak, in a soup… you name it! Everything that cheese can be put on or added to, she will.
On the other hand, she doesn’t like ham quite much. Even though her mother is from Extremadura, where the best jamón ibérico is made. With such an origin, you can imagine that, at her parents’, every celebration, whether Christmas or Birthdays, fostered a flood of the best ham in town.
But she just doesn’t like ham. She likes cheese.
Of course, as her mother knew well about Natalia’s affair with cheese, she made sure there was always some on the fridge too.
Are you asking yourself why I am explaining this story to you and what on earth has this to do with clothing? Reason is simple: every person is different, and of course we all have diferent tastes. Some we like ham, others like cheese. There’s people who even love pastrami! (Can you imagine? LoL).
It’s just the same with clothing: we are all different. In a very literal way, actually. Not only inside: our bodies are unique too.
As you may (or may not) already know, our business is based on making possible to have a made to measure garment on the distance, without ever physically meeting.⠀
Of course, a key step in achieving this is allowing and empowering the customer to take his or her own measurements. A very detailed full set of measurements, indeed, as the more detailed, the better the fit we will achieve.⠀
Since I started making garments to measure on the distance, I’ve been using an online form that I created many years ago. It was a simplified version of the form I use when I personally take measurements on a client, because when I created it I thought asking for the full set was too complicated.⠀
But over time, I realized that I needed the full form of measurements, and had since been eager for creating a new online form.⠀
It’s been quite a long journey: first I needed to take new pictures on a model, then I needed to find a better form-creation plugin for my website. And finally, I needed to build it up! Oh and set up the associated automations for receiving the submitted data and emailing the client, etc.⠀
It’s been a HUGE amount of work, but it’s been totally worth it, and I’m VERY proud of the result. It’s a very detailed, step-by-step form with plenty of pictures and thorough explanations.⠀
I invite you to check it out, you will find the link here.⠀
Do you like it? Do you think it’s useful? Let me know in the comments, I’ll love to hear your thoughts.
Have a woderful day!
