Measure length of curved path

In AI, there is a way to select the path between two points, and AI tells you the exact length of that line/path in your chosen unit. This would be an enormous time saver for seamstresses. I use vector software to create printable sewing patterns, where the measurements must be precise for two pieces of fabric to line up correctly. One tricky example is the rounded armhole. I need to know the length of a curved armhole, and then the top of the sleeve must be the same length for the sleeve to match the armhole of a shirt. Currently, I have to create a 1/2-inch line and duplicate it over and over around the curve to estimate its length. It takes SO LONG to do this. Being able to simply select a curve and be told its length would be a major time saver.
