HOW TO MEASURE

measurements for most garments are taken seam to seam flat across the item on an even surface. 

shoulder: shoulder seam to shoulder seam (for coats or garments with thicker fabrics, measurements will be taken from interior)

bust: underarm seam to underarm seam 

sleeves: shoulder seam to end of cuff

waist: side to side and doubled across for full waist measurement

 

hips: measured approximately 8 to 9" below waist (fullest part of garment)

 

length: top of shoulder to bottom hem

sweep (for gowns // full maxi skirts): side to side of bottom hem



please keep in mind there might be a discrepancy of 1 to 2" depending on thickness of fabric.
