Measurement Chart for our Custom Historical Clothing 


You may either write your measurements in the "Measurements and General Information section" during the check-out process from our shopping cart, or print (Right Click on your mouse and choose Print) this page and fax or mail it to us.

It is best to use a cloth or tailors measuring tape and it's easier if you have someone assist you.

For the best fit you should wear the under garments that you will be wearing under your period clothing.
Not all measurements are necessary for each clothing item, however please try to choose the relevant ones. If in doubt please fill in all measurements.
