About the custom chiffon robes I make:
Chiffon robes are perfect for wedding morning photographs as they convey dreamy, gauzy, light hearted beauty like no other fabric. They are an absolute curve-skimming delight to receive as gifts & poetry to photograph.

They combine beautifully with satin belts & can be paired with a variety of satin colors. Chiffon robes are lined in a soft polyester fabric of matching color. The chiffon itself is 100% polyester.

For girls who prefer the feel of satin next to their skin, I recommend a satin collar trim. This will run all along the front of the robe and also looks very elegant.

Chiffon robes are not recommended for weddings without air conditioning or weddings in very hot weather.

Chiffon robes are cross-over dressing gowns with loose sleeves, lined body & need either exact body measurements or US/UK/Aus dress size information (4, 8, 12 etc) and heights. All robes are sewn with ease so that they are a little roomy. 
For the most accurate fit, please provide exact body measurements & the length you need ( measuring from the top of the shoulder).
Exact body measurements include-
-Bust at the fullest (actual bust, NOT bra size)
-Waist at the narrowest
-Hips at the widest

I sew robes around 34" long for heights between 5'1" to 5'3",  36" long for heights between 5'4" and 5'5" , 38" long for girls 5'6" to 5'8" and 40" to 42" long for taller girls (or any other length you specify). These lengths sit above the knee at the lower thigh level. Custom lengths up to 42" are possible free of charge. 

I am also happy to make custom robes for children & will need their standard sizes.

Please also be sure to mention it if someone needs more room around the bust, shoulders or hip area (or if they are unusually "high" or "low" waisted) as we are all made differently.

All chiffon robes are lined in the body area, leaving the sleeves unlined.

Please take the time to make a list of everyone in your bridal party who needs a robes (including flower girls). Adding to an order at a later date can increase processing times greatly.

I've tried to represent the fabric colors as accurately as possible, however they may vary slightly based on your monitor. Print (motif) placement on the final garment may vary slightly from what is seen in the photos. If this is unacceptable, Singing Slowly robes may not be for you.
