We aim to offer our clients exactly what is ordered, but due to certain conditions, there may be variations from what you see on our website and what you see in person.
The fabric colors you see on our website can vary in person due to the color variations of each photograph and each computer screen. Multiple factors can affect color display, none of which we have any control of.
Also, most of our garments are hand dyed so there may be slight variations in color because of these fabric dying processes.
Lastly, we only stock a limited amount of fabric for each piece to keep exclusivity, so if the same fabric is no longer available, we will email you with any changes before finalizing the order.
Thank you for your understanding of these small technicalities, we promise to provide you with well-made, beautiful outfits.
The neck measurement is taken around the base of the neck with the tape resting on your shoulders. You should put one finger between the tape and the neck if you want to allow for some extra room.
- Dart Point
Measure from the nape to the center of your one bust.
- Above Bust
Measure around the body above your bust
Measure the circumference around the fullest part of the bust. Make sure the tape measure doesn't drop at the back.
- Under Bust
Measure the circumference directly under the bust.
- High Waist
Measure the circumference of your waist. Use the tape to circle your waist (sort of like a belt would) at your natural waistline, which is located above your belly button and below your rib cage. (If you bend to the side, the crease that forms is your natural waistline.) Don't suck in your stomach, or you'll get a false measurement.
- Low Waist
Measure the circumference around your upper hips, approx. 4 inches below the natural waist ribbon on top of your hip bones.
The hip measurement is taken as a circumference measurement around your hips at the widest part.
Measure the circumference of the fullest part of your thigh. Wrap the tape measure around your thigh from front to back and then around to the front.
Measure the circumference of knee at the fullest point by bending the knee a little bit
Measure the circumference around your calf at its widest point
Wrap the tape measure horizontally around the narrowest part of the ankle. The tape measure should be snug but not too tight or too loose.
- Front Neck Depth
For the neck, start from the top of the shoulder, that is your neck joint, and measure till your cleavage, to the point where you want your blouse neck to end
- Back Neck Depth
For the back, measure from the neck joint to the center of your back and choose how deep you would like the back neck drop to be.
Think of a line going from your armpit straight upwards to your shoulder. Measure between those two points and hold the tape measure straight.
- Extended Sleeves
With arm relaxed at your side, place your measuring tape, begin at the middle of the upper back, slightly below the nape of your neck. Measure the length from the middle of the upper back to the stitching located at the shoulder to the desired sleeve length. It is approximately 2-3 inches from the shoulder point.
- Short Sleeves
With arm relaxed at your side, measure from the end of your shoulder at the top of your arm to approximately 4-6 inches or where you would like the sleeve to end.
- Half Sleeves
With arm relaxed at your side, measure from the end of your shoulder at the top of your arm to just above the elbow (approx. 2 inches) or where you would like the sleeve to end. Always bend the elbow when measuring.
- Three Quarter Sleeves
With arm relaxed at your side, measure from the end of your shoulder at the top of your arm to just below the elbow (approx. 5 inches) or where you would like the sleeve to end. Always bend the elbow when measuring.
- Full Sleeves
With arm relaxed at your side, measure from the end of your shoulder at the top of your arm to just before the wrist bone or where you would like the sleeve to end. Always bend the elbow when measuring.
This is the distance from the uppermost inner part of your thigh to the bottom of your ankle
- Pant/Churidaar Length
With standing straight, measure in a straight line along the outside of your leg from your pant waist to your ankle for churidaar & till the floor/ desired length for pants.
- Lehenga Length
With standing straight, measure in a straight line along the center front from your lehenga waist to the desired length. This waist point should be lower (below the navel) than the side waist point in the front.
Measure from the top of the shoulder, down the front of the shoulder, under the armpit, and up the back of the shoulder.
