RUSH ORDER: Want it made fast? We can absolutely make your MARILYN Fairytale Ballgown in as little as 30 business days with a paid Rush Order! Our Rush Order fee is 50% of the retail price of a Claire Helene original design. This accounts for her extra time and labor needed to complete your dress in addition to moving your custom order ahead of our existing queue. Please select your delivery time via the dropdown menu at checkout.
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
