What we ask

- We ask for all the measurements listed below in the Step-By-Step Guide, including hollow to hem, shoulder to hem, bust, waist, hips, shoulder to shoulder, shoulder to waist, shoulder to bust, armhole, and neck.
- Depending on the design of your dress, we may also ask for collar height, sleeve length, bicep circumference, preferred slit length, and length of top portion for A-line designs.
- How to submit:
- After you order, we'll send you your unique link to submit your general info, photos, and specific measurements via email.
- Important reminder:
- Our custom sizing options should provide you with a good fit (especially for the many of you who are between sizes). However, you should anticipate needing some local alterations to get the perfect fit for you. For that reason, we offer a free local tailoring credit up to $50 if your dress needs some final adjustments to get it just right.
