"Anything hand crafted is far more valuable than anything made by a machine. A hand crafted item contains not only the base ingredients but a part of someone's life, their psyche and their dreams."

Summer / Fall 2017: I am running at least 12 weeks on new orders, please be patient as I work hard to catch up. More details on my ordering page!

 

Adding a Shopping Cart!

I am currently adding a shopping cart! This will take some time as I have to generate a unique button (with many options in some cases) for each and every item here, so many items don't have buttons yet so bear with me! For all ordering details, visit my standard ordering page here.

Sizing

This section is still being organized and tailored for our needs. Be sure to include any particular sizing information with your order. Questions? Contact me! 

  • Arm and Wrist pieces - measurements should be taken of your wrist, and of your forearm about 2/3 up from wrist, usually the largest part of your forearm.

  • Leg and Ankle pieces - measurements should be taken of your ankle, and your calf at it largest point. Also take kneecap to ankle length.

  • Belts - I use your actual measurement and make that the center hole. This usually won't match the waist size of your pants. Clothing manufacturers actually practice something called "Vanity Sizing" which is designed to make you feel better about what 'pant size' you wear. Therefore if I make a belt that matches your pant size, it won't fit. It's best to actually measure your waist over the clothing you will wear the belt with. Use a tape measure, make it snug, and give me that actual number! More details Here.

  • Women's tops - measurements of bust, chest, and waist, where applicable. Cup size also.

  • Women's bottoms - measurements of waist and hips. Also waist to knee and waist to ankle where applicable.

  • Neck pieces - measurement of neck. Chokers come in 18" and 22" sizes, measured to largest setting. 18" chokers fit from 14" to 18" necks, and 22" chokers fit from 18" to 22" necks. 

  • Headwear - Helms and Headbands are adjustable for most, but measure your head and contact us to be sure.

 

 

How to measure yourself

Remember to keep the measuring tape comfortably loose, and it's best to not measure yourself. We all tend to "encourage" the tape to show numbers we like, so have a helper measure you! Since leather doesn't stretch much, true accuracy is important!

Bust: (Women) Measure around your body, under your arms and over the fullest part of your bust.

Chest: (Women) Measure around your ribcage, right under your breasts. (Men) The fullest part of your chest.

Waist: Hold measuring tape at your natural waist line, about 1-2 inches above your navel.

Hips: We like to have two measurements here; the first being around your hips at the hip bone, usually about 8" below your waist. For petites, 7" below. The second is the actual widest part, usually a little lower than the hips. This can greatly determine how a skirt or skirt like piece will really hang.

Match the measurements to the chart below

 

Ladies Measurement Chart

Ladies, if I've asked you to provide me with particular measurements from a chart, this is the one to use. Notes: if providing line 2, you should also include your cup size.

 

These charts below are just for an interesting reference. I prefer to work from actual measurements as opposed to these charts, but you may find them useful for other things.
