About the custom robes I make:
These look gorgeous, dreamy & elegant in getting ready (wedding morning) photos. And they make the loveliest gifts!

Robes are cross-over dressing gowns with loose sleeves & 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. 

My robes are not a 'one-size-fits-all'.

For the most accurate fit, please provide exact body measurements. This is in your best interest as I do not provide alterations.

Exact body measurements include-

-Edge of shoulder to edge of shoulder (these can vary from 13.5 inches to 17"). Only measure from edge to edge (do not go any further).
-Bust at the fullest (actual bust, NOT bra size)
-Waist at the narrowest
-Hips at the widest
-Length from top of shoulder to narrowest part of waist (where the belt will sit).
-Your height 
Please double check the measurements before you send them to me.

I highly recommend that brides give me their actual body measurements.


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 & heights.


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.


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.
