Please have your measurements taken by a qualified seamstress before selecting your dress size.

  • Never measure yourself. Always have another person take your measurements, preferably an experienced tailor.
  • Never refer to sizing for other clothing pieces. A consistent guide does not exist between manufacturers, as many manufacturers often use "vanity sizing" as a psychological tool. Vanity sizing is both inaccurate and inappropriate for items that will require custom tailoring. Use physical measurements only per these instructions.
  • Keep the tape firm but not tight.
  • Make sure the tape is level around the area you are measuring.
  • Take measurements in inches to determine correct sizing


**PLEASE note: Measurements are approximate, as garments are hand-sewn. As such, please allow +/- 1 inch in length variance.
