Processing time is typically 4 weeks after design has been finalised and the payment has been made. However, it can be up to 8 weeks depending on the quantity and design. The earlier you speak to me, the better.

My skirts can be made according to your waist measurements with very occasional exceptions limited by fabric widths.
Waist measurement x 1.5 = hip-to-hip front over cross
Without personalisation, wrap skirt waists are 90-100 cm/35-39 inches in the straight line.
Waist lengths longer than 120 cm/47 inches for extra-long and high-low, and 130 cm/51 inches for other lengths incur a surcharge. This is the flat line of the wrap skirt, NOT your waist measurement.
Waist measurements including and larger than 80 cm/31 inches incur a surcharge.
Following are considered as personalised items.
Contrasting ribbons and hems
XL and larger sizes
Other one-off requests
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.
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.
Contact me within 14 days. Please cover the return postage. I will make a refund once I have received the return an item/s and confirmed they are in the original condition. Original and return shipping costs are not refundable.

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.
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.
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.
