Hardly worth $30 and it took so long to get here. So long that I had forgotten about it and had an appointment with a dressmaker.

So sorry that your swatches took so long to arrive! Unfortunately, this is typically the case when shipping to Australia. We are happy to hear you found a local dressmaker so you don't have to worry about shipping delays! Best of luck and have a beautiful wedding!

Can't wait to share a professional photo later from my wedding. This skirt is to die for!! The craftsmanship is impeccable. Along w the design & work put in, Caroline herself was also readily available for any questions I had from the moment I ordered til after it arrived. She was so kind & happy to answer anything I was wondering. She customized everything as I asked & helped advise me on what I wanted also. The black dip dye is so incredibly unique & fascinating. I feel like a dream wearing this & cant wait to get married in it!

Sizing

Our pieces are available in our standard size 00-20. You can view our sizing chart on each listing, as well as below.

Skirt Lengths – This measurement is from the natural waist* to the floor, down center front, including a 2” waistband.

Petite – 43”
Regular – 48”
Long – 53”

Sleeve Lengths - From the top of the shoulder* to the lowest depth of the scalloped edge.

Petite - 22”
Regular – 24”
Long – 26”

Crop Lengths – This measurement is from hallow* to the lowest depth of the scalloped edge.

Petite – 13”
Regular - 14”
Long - 15”

How to measure –
Bust – around the fullest part of your chest, through the nipple
Waist – around your natural waist, the smallest part of your body. This is typically 1-2” above your belly button, just below your rib cage
Hip – around the widest part of your hips, through the buttocks with feet shoulder width apart
Bicep – around the fullest part of your upper arm
Sleeve Length – from the top of your shoulder, about 2” over from where a strap would sit, to the top of your hand.
Bodice Length – hallow to bodice hem measurement. Your hallow is the indent on the front of your neck, between your collar bones. Be sure to add slack for your bust.
Skirt Length – from natural waist to the floor.

To avoid inaccurate measurements, we strongly recommend getting measured by a professional seamstress. If you are in between sizes, order the large size – it is always easier to take a garment in than it is to let it out. Because our pieces are all made from a standard size chart, please allow room in your budget for alterations to achieve a perfect fit.

Color Matching

Due to the variation of computer monitors, we strongly recommend ordering a swatch if you are attempting to match any of our pieces to another skirt, top, accessories, etc. We are not able to confirm or match colors for you via email.

Customization

We do not offer custom design services or customizations, but we love that separates allow brides to mix and match to achieve a custom look. Due to our production demands, we do not offer custom sizing.
