For all custom made garments, please send measurements using the guide below.

Feel free to contact me if your are unsure which measurements are needed for your made-to-order garment and I’ll gladly help you out.


Make sure you take the measurements correctly as the fit of your garment depends on it. Never take measurements too tightly : it is easy to take in the garment, but it is impossible to add on material which has been cut away.

Place a tape measure firmly round the waist and see that the person to be measured stands straight.
