Create and manage profiles

A profile can have multiple sets of measurements for any category of clothing. And the share feature allows you to send measurements to your tailors and customers as links. The recipient of your measurement link can view your measurements even if they do not have Tailor Village installed.

 

  1. To add a new set of measurements for a profile, select the profile from the profile list, tap +, give the set of measurements a name and select its clothing category. Tailor Village gives suggestions of clothing categories as you type but you can just type in any custom category.

  2. Tap Continue. If you are yet to customize the set of measurements for the clothing category, you will be taken to the clothing categories settings screen to do so (see Customise measurements for clothing categories below). 

  3. Now you can record your measurements by either sliding the tape at the bottom or directly typing the number using your keypad. If you are adding extra allowance to the measurements, toggle the Ease switch on.

  4. Save the measurements by tapping the tick icon at the top right of the screen.

  5. To edit a profile’s measurement, go to the profile, select the measurement  from the drop-down list, and tap edit icon to update. Use the bin icon to permanently delete the selected set of measurements.

  6. To share a measurement, select it from the drop-down list and tap the share icon. You can copy the link or share it via any of your installed apps.

While Tailor Village has a list of many body measurements, you may not need all of them for a particular clothing category. For example, you will most likely not need thigh measurements for shirts. You can customize, one-off, the set of measurements required for a clothing category.

  1. Tap the menu icon to open the navigation pane, go to Settings, and tap the clothing categoriesicon. 

  2. Use the + button at the top right and type in the clothing category you want to customize. Don’t worry if your clothing category is not among the suggestions given. Tap Continue.

  3. Tap Measurements to expand the complete list and select those required for the clothing category. 

  4. Click  the tick icon on the top right corner to save. Now these set of measurements will be selected when you create a new profile measurements of this clothing category.

Please contact us if we are missing a measurement you need.
