How to Measure Yourself

  • Qs: How does made to measure work? 
L&L: We make all of our pieces to your own measurements to improve on overall fit! We will ask you give us specific measurements so we can have the pieces made in your own proportions and take into consideration your height for dress and skirt lengths.

  • Qs: Will I still need alterations if the pieces are made to my own measurements? 
L&L: Sometimes brides may need small alteration after receiving the pieces to achieve the perfect fit, however we don’t expect any hefty alterations at all. For example you may need a small tuck in or let out on the waistband or on the top however something such as the length of the skirt will be perfect as it will be made to your own height + taking heel height into considerations. 
We do not provide any alteration services. Any experienced local tailor will be able to help with alterations if any needed. Refer to our Returns & Alteration section for more information.
