Sizing & Measurements:


Measurements are taken with the garment laid flat.  Please note that you will need to add room for fit between the garment measurement and your own measurements.

It is recommended that you measure a similar item that you already own and that fits you well and compare those measurements to the ones given to insure the best fit.

Shoulders are measured from shoulder seam to shoulder seam.  If there is not a seam at the shoulder then the measurement is taken at the natural shoulder.

Sleeves are measured from shoulder seam to cuff.  If there is not a shoulder seam then the measurement is taken from cuff to collar and will be noted that way.

Waist measurements are taken at the narrowest part of the waist as shown.

Hips are measured at the fullest part of the bottom.    Full skirts are noted as hips-full.

Length is measured from shoulder to hem.  Sometimes bodice measurements are given and they are taken shoulder to waistline.  Skirts are measured waistline to hem.

Other measurements sometimes given are pant length which is waist to hem and inseam which is crotch to hem.
