    Short: between cap and elbow

    Three quarters: about 5 cm/2 inches above wrist
    Long: wrist length

    ★ Two tones
    If you want sleeves in a different colour or print from the body of the leotard, please purchase this option. At this point, please keep both sleeves to the same colour or the print.

    ★ Sylvie (boat neck) and Isabelle (tank/wide U neck) style leotards can be customised by purchasing an add-on from this listing.

    ★ Ombre tones can be captured better by longer sleeves.

    ★ Full front lining: Use this listing to add a full front lining for any leotards. Please note that a full front lining may make a leotard less stretchy, and that all leotards come with inner bust panel linings.

    ★ Neckline adjustment
    I am happy to adjust the neckline and back. Please contact me in advance. The back of the Nicola racerback style cannot be customised.

    ★ Sizing surcharge
    If you are in XL or larger, please purchase sizing surcharge from the separate listing. You have to purchase three items in one order, a base leotard + sleeves + sizing surcharge.

    ★All custom leotards sales are final due to the nature of the product. So, ask me any questions in advance. I am happy to help!

    For XL and larger, please purchase from the separate listing, Surcharge for plus size ballet skirts and leotards

    Waist size, customisation, surcharge

    My skirts are made according to your waist measurements with very occasional exceptions due to fabric widths.
    Sales for skirts for waist measurements of 75cm/30 inches and larger, and all custom leotards are FINAL.

    Surcharges
    Waist measurements of 85 cm/33 inches inclusive and larger incur a surcharge.

    Wrap skirts
    Wrap skirts are made based on waist measurement x 1.5 to give a hip-to-hip front over cross.

    Pull-on skirt
    Custom pull-on skirts are made slightly smaller than actual waist measurements as they are made of very stretchy material.

    Following are considered as personalised items.
    Skirts and leotards made with surcharges

    Contrasting ribbons and hems
    Specified lengths
    XL and larger sizes
    Other one-off requests

    Wholesale availability

    Contact me for wholesale and bulk orders. Production waiting time is typically 4-6 weeks but it may take longer depending on products and quantity.
    Please note wholesale and bulk orders cannot be cancelled. They are also non-returnable and non-refundable.

    Style and materials, productions

    All skirts are hand-made by me in London.
    Leotards are made by a small manufacturer in Italy or a seamstress in Japan. This will be clearly indicated in each product detail section.

    Skirts are made of chiffon, georgette or mesh fabrics with elastic waist ribbons. These are typically made of either 100% polyester or 97-98% polyester and 2-3% spandex, unless otherwise noted.

    Waists are finished with 1.5 cm-wide elastic ribbons for wrap and pull on skirts. For wrap skirts, loose parts of the ribbons are left unsewn to keep the elasticity intact. Elasticity makes it easier to handle and helps secure skirts on waist while dancing.

    Leotards are made of lycra and stretch mesh.

    Once the product is shipped, shipping cost is no longer refundable and you have to cover the return shipment.

    Signature Cut

    Not built according to the typical ballerina physique specs, I tried to cut many skirt patterns, which could make my legs look nicer with a longer, leaner and more athletic line.

    After many failed attempts, I finally came up with the Signature Cut. Still, you have to turn out and work hard!

    Signature Cut is 35 cm in front and 50 cm in back. It drapes nicely but not too much.

    If you do not like the gold fish frill look of the Signature cut but the look of the front, my mid length skirt is designed with the same front cut and a rounder, shorter back than Signature Cut.

    Signature Cut skirts can be worn for classes, auditions and rehearsals.

    Packaging: minimal and minimal plastic

    I use the minimal possible packaging materials with minimal possible plastic to keep waste as little as possible. So skirts will arrive in very unglamorous packaging.

    This also helps overall prices as low as possible.

    Production and processing time

    The average production and processing time for all made-to-order items are 3 weeks plus shipping although it may take up to 5-6 weeks.
    If you order a ready-to-wear and made-to-order items together, please allow for the longer processing time.
    If you need to know better estimates or need skirts more urgently, please message me. I will try to meet your needs as much as possible.
