Measurement Form

To provide a correct fit, you will want someone else to take your measurements for you and have them take your measurements at least twice. This will make the measurements more accurate. Consistency is important. When taking your measurements, please wear the appropriate undergarments and the shoes you plan on wearing with your gown. Appropriate undergarments include: a chemise, corset, hoopskirt (or cage crinoline, whichever you may have) or corded petticoat. I do not make any of the undergarments to sell. You may contact me and I can give you a list of reputable makers. E-mail measurements to
