How do I measure myself for a dress
Customly sewn dresses always fit better then standardized ones. That’s why it’s so important not only to know your own size but to take all the right measurements. Please ask your relatives or friends to help you. Following the instructions they will easily get done with this task. To take the measurements you will need a measure tape and an elastic band. Measurements must be taken in exactly the same underwear you’re going to wear with your future dress. That means not only a bra, but fitting underwear and tights as well.
If you`ve chosen a dress with open back and you are not going to wear a bra with this dress consequently the measurements should be taken without bra.
Please make a photo of your figure taken en face, profile and full face so that we can verify your measurements with your outward appearance. Please specify the height. Before taking the measurements please tie the waist with an elastic band, which should be at the narrowest point of the waist – it is important! All constructive calculations will be carried out from this line.
20. Skirt length
It is measured vertically across the side seam, from waist till the floor.
This value will be your dress length from waistline.
We recommend you to take take this measurement with the shoes, your going to wear with this dress, on.
In case with no shoes, just add the supposed heels height to the already measured skirt length.
