Is there a specific way to measure your torso before making clothing? Also your legs and arms?

Actually, I have a different approach. I get out the best fitting article (shirt, skirt, pants, etc.) I have. then I sit down and measure that to make a pattern.

For the body measurements:
Arm=from under arm or shoulder seam to bones that stick out on either side of the wrist at the end of the forearm
Leg inseam=from middle of crotch or garment crotch to length desired, since different types of pants have different lengths
Crotch length=In the midline, front and back to the crotch
Waist=at the natural waist
Hips=at the widest part of the hips
Chest=with bra on, at the widest part of the chest.
Front length=length from neck line to waist.
Back length=length from neck line to waist.

Here's the best reference handy.
