HOW TO TAKE YOUR BODY MEASUREMENTS
We’ve been at this handmade clothing game for quite a while now and time and again customers have the same dilemma: they are a different size in every place they shop.
Are you a size 12 in one shop and a size 18 in another? It is super tricky.
This is where the beauty of tailoring comes in.
With our ‘Design your own’ service you get to pick from our garment designs + gallery of vintage + dead-stock fabrics for clothing made to your measurements.
Love the idea but unconfident about having to take and send us your measurements? No problem! Simply grab a friend and follow the steps in our easy ‘How to take your body measurements’ guide:
WHAT KIND OF GARMENT ARE YOU INTERESTED IN?
Some of our wonderful customers like us to have all their measurements on file so they can shop across the collection in the knowledge we’ll adjust garments where needed to make sure they get that perfect fit.
If that’s you then follow the each video and record all the measurements. Please do not add any extra to any of your measurements – we need your actual body measurements which we will then add ease to!
