Sizing: (This chart is used as a guide. We can usually alter the pattern to make smaller or bigger sizes. For sizes outside of the chart, we will need the measurements listed below the chart. Email us for more information)
Size Chart (inches):
| Back Waist Length
For a more custom fit, you can send us your measurements. Here are some guides for where to measure:
1. Measure from top of shoulder to underneath the arm
2. Across shoulders
3. Bust (all the way around and just from under arm to under arm
4. Waist (around the waist)
5. Length from shoulder to where you want the dress to stop
6. Shoulder to shoulder on back
7. Under arm to under arm (on back)
8. From neck to waist
Also, if you could send us your height, that would be great too.
Measure around the waist or hips (depending on where you want to wear the skirt) and, measure from waist (or hips) to where you want the skirt to stop.
Note: If you do not have a tape measure, you can look at a sizing chart online at a store that sells a dress or skirt that fits you well. For example, if there is a dress/shirt/skirt you recently bought at Old Navy that fits you perfectly, go to the website and find the item or a similar item and look at your size on the sizing chart and get those measurements. It might not have all we need, but it will give us something to work with.
If you plan to send your own fabric to us, here is the yardage chart to explain how many yards of fabric we will need.
