If you would like your garment made to measure please take a look at the following measurement guide - it tells you where & how to measure yourself. Please leave instructions at the checkout that you like you garment made to measure & we send you out a form to fill in - Thank you!
To get the perfect fit for your custom made garment - we will need to know a few measurements from you. It would be advised if you could get someone else to measure you. Remember to stand up straight when taking measurements.
REMEMBER NEVER TO PULL THE TAPE MEASURE TO TIGHT - THIS IS NOT A COMFORTABLE MEASUREMENT AND WILL MAKE GARMENTS TOO TIGHT.
Tools you need:
A Tape Measure
- ABOVE THE BUST: measure under arms & across the widest part of the back (remember keep the tape measure straight as possible)
- OVER THE BUST: measure around the fullest part of the bust, keeping the tape measure straight
- WAIST: let the tape measure fall naturally around the waist to give a true measurement - keeping the tape secure but loose enough so it can move around the waist
- HIPS: this measurement is usually 18 to 23cms below the waist. Measure around the fullest part - remember not to pull to tight
- LENGTH: This depend on how long you would like the skirt on your dress - if you measure from your waist to a comfortable measurement (such as to just above the knee or below)
Other measurements you may need:
- SHOULDER WIDTH: if a garment has sleeves/arm holes - we will need the width of your shoulder : from nape of neck to shoulder bone.
- ARM HOLE CIRCUMRENCE: if a garment has sleeves/arm holes - we will need the measurement from your shoulder bone to under the armpit (this needs to be a comfortable fit) if your not sure how to do this measurement - measure the armhole of a garment you already wear
