How to Take Custom Measurements – the Video Saga
One of the most common inquiries I get, comes from customers who want to know how to determine what size Cici Bianca Jacket they need to order. For the longest time I have wanted to post some videos on YouTube on how to take custom measurements for my jackets but could never seem to get to it.
I honestly had no idea how to go about this other than realizing I needed to get a video camera (better than my phone) to accomplish my mission. I took a chance on an Internet shopping site, WOOT that was offering a great price on a JVC video recorder. Now granted this is not some fabulous electronic device but considering I didn’t have a clue what I was doing I figured it would suffice.
I convinced my sister Nancy to be my model for one of the videos and enlisted the help of her daughter Sara to be our quasi videographer. I had two different scenarios I wanted to do and it took us 27 takes to get them right! Of course if I could have figured out how to do some editing I wouldn’t have had to try for that “perfect” video.
So here is the first one. Sorry, I cannot figure out how to make a bigger picture… For sure I am doing something wrong. It should be larger with a “play arrow” in the center instead of a link below - it cannot be that difficult but for the moment it is beyond me.
Oh wait a second! I think I’ve got it – No, forget it …
Here is the link.
This is the second video.
Hey, they’re not great but at least I’ve managed to get something posted. I have to figure out this player situation and then I need to get them on the website!
