Helpful Tips

It is important to take your measurements as accurately as possible to ensure that your garments fit properly. Please use these helpful tips. We are not liable for custom made garments that do not fit because of inaccurately taken measurements. Our Designs are geared towards petite women so if you are tall & or have a long torso please email us so we can be sure to make you the perfect size.

It is best to have someone take your measurements for you if possible.

While your measurements are being taken, stand straight, keeping your head up and looking forward. Keep your body relaxed with natural breath.

Measure over the undergarments and with the shoes you will be wearing.

Keep the measuring tape straight and snug, not tight.

The measurements listed on our site are in inches. If you are ordering outside the USA please visit the conversion charts listed below.

If you are ordering a garment which is fitted and customized, like a Ghawazee Coat, it can be helpful to send us an email if there are any particulars regarding your frame and body type. For example, if you have broad shoulders, a long torso, large arms or are petite or very tall.
