If you were to do that, it would be impossible to tighten your cinch because it would wrap all the way around. The way that I do it, I measure from the highest hole on the right, around the horse's heart girth to where it's elbow ties into it's body. This way, I have ample room to create a snug fit when I tighten the girth, but can easily let it down a notch or two if my horse gains weight or it looks too short.
There may be a better way, but that's always how I've done it.
