If you have already ordered or own a made to measure skirt then I have your measurements on file. Please select “refer to my measurements on file” in the size selection when you order. You can always contact me to confirm this and check I have sufficient fabric on site, before you make a payment. There is no additional cost for the made to measure service when I have your measurements on file.

If this is your first MADE TO MEASURE order you will need to contact me. I will explain the measurements I need listed below to complete your order. You can then pay by internet banking or by phone me with your credit card details. There is an additional one-off charge of $30 for this service.

     Waist – this is the smallest horizontal measurement about half way between your bust and your hips. If you are not sure where this is, tie a ribbon tightly around your waist and it will work its way to the correct place. Your skirt will be made to this measurement so do not make it too tight – just comfortable. 

      Hip – this is another horizontal measurement about 20 cm /8 ” below your waist. It covers the fullness of your bottom. If you are above or below average height of 5’6” (168 cm) then your hip line will be fractionally higher or lower than this. All skirts are cut 1-2 cm larger than your hipline measurement so the fabric does not cling to your bottom. 

   Length – this is taken from your waist down your outside leg to the length you require your skirt to finish. 

If you know a dressmaker, they could help you take these measurements or you could phone me and I could talk you through how to take your body measurements and help you select a flared or straight shape.
