Length using tape measure vs string/paper
I don’t have a tailor tape or ruler. When I use a tape measure it comes only 4.5 inches but when I use a piece of paper or string I get 5.5-6 inches.. The paper I just flatten on top of it and then measure the imprint using the tape measure/same thing with a non stretchy string
Without a tailors tape or ruler which method is the most accurate out of these?
