(See picture 2 for how to measure information and read measuring instructions in the description below). Accurate measurements is one of the key components to achieving a good fit. It is easiest and most accurate to have a friend measure you, if one is not available, you can measure yourself standing in front of a full length mirror. Always take measurements over the undergarments and anything else you plan on wearing with the dress.Stand comfortably and straight with your feet directly underneath your shoulders. Measurements should be redone if you have lost or gained 7 lbs or more.
Please send actual measurements, wearing ease will be added when the dress is made. Wearing ease will be added when your dress is made. Neck -- Measure all the way around the base of the neck for a comfortable neckline. The best way to do this is place a small chain around the base of your neck, and then measure the chain.
(NOTE: The following measurements, 2, 3, & 4 on image 1& 2 are the same measurement, not two separate measurements) 2. (This is not your bra size) With arms initially outstretched, place measuring tape around your back shoulder blades and parallel with the floor. Bring tape around to front over fullest part of the bust. The tape may expand slightly and will allow for back expansion.
Waist -- Tie a piece of string or elastic around your natural waist. Bend from side to side to settle the elastic in your natural waist position. Measure around your waist at this position.
IF your dress is empire waist, please measure around the body where you want the empire waistline to be and submit that measurement as well. Hips -- Start at the fullest point of your hips. This could be between 2"-9" below the waistline. Measure around the fullest part of your hips keeping the tape parallel to the floor.Shoulder length -- With tape at the base of the neck, measure along the natural shoulder seam line to the top of the arm 6. Back Shoulders -- Measure from sleeve seam to sleeve seam across the back shoulder blades. Sleeve Opening -- Measure from the top of the arm down through the armpit and back around to the top. Sleeve Length -- With arm outstretched, measure about 1 away from the body starting in the armpit along the arm to the desired sleeve length. Sleeve Ends -- Measure all the way around the arm at the end of your desired sleeve length. Back Bodice Length -- Start at the top in the center of the shoulder seam where the bodice front and back are joined and measure down the back over your shoulder blades to your waistline. IF your dress has an empire waist, please stop the tape where you want the waistline of your dress to be. (Please note #10 and #11 are measured the same way) 11. Front Bodice Length -- Start at the top in the center of the shoulder seam where the bodice front and back are joined and measure down the front over the fullest part of the bust to the waistline. Again, if your dress has an empire waist stop the tape where you want the waistline to be. This measurement should end completely level with the back measurement. If you have a full bust this measurement will be longer than the back. Skirt Length -- Start at the end of the desired bodice length and measure down the leg to the desired skirt length. Back waist to Crotch -- With tape measure between your legs, begin the tape at the back waist level and measure down to the center of the crotch. Front Waist to Crotch -- With tape measure between your legs, begin the tape at the front waist level and measure down to the center of the crotch. (#13 and #14 are measured the same way) 15.

A light steam from the iron or hanging in a steamy bathroom may help. Most dresses are machine washable in cool water on gentle cycle with mild soap. Always hang dry - Never dry in the dryer as the heat destroys delicate lace and trims and fades the fabric.
When in doubt, dry cleaning is recommended. Although all sales are final, I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee by offering a replacement of unsatisfactory items that we may have made a mistake on. The replacement offer does not cover buyers remorse.Because this is a custom made item, please allow 1-4 weeks to complete your order. Saturday and Sunday times may vary. On our custom made dresses, you are required to send your basic measurements in order for us to make the dress to fit you. The mandatory measurements are the chest and waist measurements. If you do not provide measurements for the length of the bodice, sleeves, or skirts, we reserve the right to make your dress using our best judgement. This is because you will be giving us different measurements from those we used for the dress in the photos. You may request shorter or longer skirts, sleeves, and bodices, which will change the look of the dress slightly. Your chest and waist measurements may be larger or smaller, and again will change the look of your dress. Monitor's also display colors differently, so be sure to read the item description to make sure you understand what colors your dress will be.
Also please remember that lace and trims may vary from those shown in the photo. We also use mannequins and props to display our dresses. This dress is displayed over a mannequin with a hoop skirt, and the sleeves are filled with stuffing for the photos. Thank you for shopping at Leanne's Pretty Dresses.
