The Tailors Tape is a simple but essential tool for sewing, crafts, and other general purposes; it never hurts to have an extra one handy as they are used so frequently. This particular unit features non-stretch, soft and flexible fibreglass fabric tape with contrasting increments in red. The vivid red colour of the measurements provides a great contrast against the white background to ensure that you're getting the most accurate measurement possible. The lightweight plastic case is just 5.1cm in diameter. Push the red button to retract the tape back into it's case. Measurements are in inches on one side and uses the metric system on the other.
