Come view my Fall/Winter Dress collection over here on Your Summer Picnic
Custom orders are also available through my contact page. The custom order dresses are highly recommended if you are under 5’3″, or over 5’9″, or if you find that the standard measurements for Bust/Waist/Hips need some tweaking to fit you best – a lot of people fall into these categories!
However, if you are happy with the measurements that I offer on my premade dresses, please go for them instead!
Scroll down for detailed information on some of the styles that I offer, or click on the pic below to browse my Etsy page!

My dresses require a properly measured bust and waist, and upper bust is required for the Summer Picnic style. The waistline of the dresses is intended to fall at your natural waist, which is usually found at the narrowest point of your waist, just above your belly button (longer torsos might find it a couple inches above the belly button).
Take a tape measure and measure around your natural waist, making sure that you are standing up straight, and don’t suck in your stomach. Measure it, preferably in inches (please specify if you’re measuring in inches or cm), and be as specific as possible!
To measure your bust, take the tape measure and go around the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape horizontal (parallel to the floor). Again, stand up straight, don’t suck anything in or push anything out.
To measure your upper bust, take the tape measure and wrap it around your torso, immediately above your bust, under your armpits.
Side seam measurement is the distance between your bust and waist along your side (where the side seam would be found on your garment).
If you prefer, you can just follow my general size chart.
Dress sizes are usually as follows:
S Bust 35-36″/Waist 26-28″
M Bust 37-38″/Waist 29-30″
L Bust 39-41/Waist 31-33″
