And it seems sad that there's nothing in that section.
I ordered this product for body measurement - how big is my bicep, how fat is my belly, etc. I have no qualification to discuss how well this works if you're a tailor or seamstress, so I won't.
I checked the accuracy of the tape against several other measuring devices at home: two high-end rules (the three-sided engineering and architectural type, not the 2nd grade type), a carpenter's square, and a retractable tape measure. All agreed within a few smidgin's (a smidgin is just about 1/30 of an inch).
So it's accurate.
It's a nice soft tape, with metal ends. On end "starts" at 0 inches and begins measuring. There's maybe 2 inches of blank tape after 60 inches, and then the tape ends. The tape is printed on both sides. One side features standard inches only, in bigger print. The other side measures both inches and centimeters in smaller print.
Both sides start measuring at the same end. This means that the tape isn't "always ready," but with my luck I'd have the wrong side up, so no real problem there.
I'd like it if this product was 72 inches long instead of 60 - I've got big shoulders, and they're getting bigger. But this does what it's supposed to, and I can always buy another one and tie them together! :-)
Anyhoo, until such time that clothing manufacturers get their stitch together, this little tape measure makes shopping much easier. At home I measure a garment that fits me well - for instance, lay a pair of jeans down and measure *flat* across the waist. When I'm in the store I can use that number and hold up a pair of jeans, measuring the same across and tell without having to go to a fitting room if it's worth it to try on or not. This saves me so much time and aggravation!
Pleased with this purchase and highly recommended.
I took the metal clips off mine as they got in the way of very precise (mm) measurements, and snipped off the excess ends.
An advantage to my old one is how the metric side also has inces, which comes in very handy.
A solid tape measure, -1 star for build quality.
