Thank you for shopping with us. Please submit your measurements for Custom-Size and Made-to-Order dress below (Ready-to-Wear standard size dress are NOT custom made available). Please notes:

  • Processing time: It normally take 7-35 days to make the dress. Please Contact Us to request the processing time or visit this page to learn about order process.
  • FREE Alterations: Normally 1-4 fittings are required by any tailor shop, before the garment is completed. We offer to make free adjustment for custom made dress. However the customer is responsible for the shipping cost. Also, if the custom made garment measurements matches the measurements customer provided, but smaller than the actually body measurements of customer, we may not be able to make the dress larger to fit the customer’s need.
  • Standard Fit: Bust + 3 cm, Waist + 2 cm, Hip + 3 cm (Model in modern fabric buttons closure dresses)
  • Loose Fit: Bust + 6-9 cm, Waist + 5-8 cm, Hip + 6-9 cm (Traditional looks. It’s often seen in the old fashion fabric button closure cheongsam, but it’s not often being used to make the modern zipper closure qipao)
  • Tight Fit: Bust + 1 cm, Waist + 1 cm, Hip + 1 cm (Model in modern zipper closure dress. It’s HIGHLY NOT recommended for the first fitting. Remember it’s always easy to trim down a dress than make it larger, especial for 100% silk, brocade dresses, which it’s easy for the fabric to be torn apart. Also, it’s not a good idea to use a such fit for craftsmanship dresses with the fabric button closure instead the zipper closure. )
  • Average Measurement Error Range: 2-3cm. Custom made dress needs to have at least two fitting to fit perfectly by any tailor shop. Especially when the dress is made by one tailor after the measurements taken by different person.
  • Dress length, sleeve length, collar height and neck grid etc. are not required and/or suggested. When the measurements are not specified by customers, our tailors use the standard size base on the customer’s height and weight.
