About TheMeasuringTape

Sales 165
On Etsy since 2007

Just make it!

The Measuring Tape is a small home-based enterprise, specializing in hand-made corsets and bespoke clothing for special events. I am a work-at-home-mom-one-woman operation. But I could not do this without the support of my family, friends and loyal customers from all over the world.

I have always been the sort to try my hand at making (and maybe improving) something I want rather than just going out to buy it. This includes food, furniture, toys for my kid when she was little, and all manner of sewn and knitted goods. It's the process of discovery which I enjoy more than anything else, and also the great satisfaction at accomplishing something that works.

To that end, I've also started teaching drafting and sewing because I want to commune with like-minded souls. If you're so inclined, I offer an online course on drafting here:
https://mymeasuringtape.teachable.com

So happy making and don't worry about the end result. Enjoy the process (of discovery) instead and you'll find that you can do more than you thought possible.

Thank you for considering a purchase from The Measuring Tape. Be assured that I conduct my business with integrity and honesty. I will answer all correspondences as promptly as possible and hopefully will never give cause for uncertainty or anxiety towards my customers.

Turnaround time on a custom corset order is 2 weeks from date of confirmation. Confirmation must include payment and return of the order and measurement form. I have a limit of only accepting 2 custom orders per month.

I cannot accept returns on corsets as they are an intimate garment. If there is serious damage to or loss of the item during transit, please let me know and I will start the process to claim from the insurance and keep you updated. Only when the claim is successfully made, can you receive a partial or full refund, dependent on the monetary outcome of the claim.

While every care will be taken to ensure secure packaging of the item for postage, The Measuring Tape is NOT responsible for any damages to or loss of the item WHILE IN TRANSIT.

I offer free insurance on all purchases.

You are responsible for any custom charges incurred at your port of entry. Please be apprised of the custom regulations of your country.

All parcels will be marked as 'merchandise' as I run a licensed business and would like to keep things above board.

Once your item has been sent, I will email you with a tracking number.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you want to add to or change something(anything!) from the description of the listing, please convo me first to discuss it...or else I must cancel the sale and you will be refunded according to my cancellation policy (please see above).

I take great pains and effort in building you a quality corset and creating a pattern. Please:

1. DO NOT RESELL them commercially without my permission. I welcome wholesale enquiries and provide a discount for bulk orders.

2. DO NOT RETAG with your own label and sell them as such.

3. DO NOT USE pictures of the corsets/patterns posted on my shop without due reference to THE MEASURING TAPE and/or modify the pictures in any way to pass them off as your own.

Many of us who sell on ETSY are small home-based businesses. It would be appreciated if you do not exploit that.

THANK YOU and HAPPY SHOPPING!
