Please take measurements carefully because I can only make the dress to these measurements without your daughter trying it on.  I will be happy to make adjustments after you receive the dress by you sending me pictures of your daughter in the dress and shipping the dress back to me.  But to conserve time please measure accurately.  When completed, print and mail along with your signed Pageant Attire Contract and Deposit to Exclusively Christy Merchant, PO Box 776, Sulligent, AL  35586, or copy and paste to your email Program, fill in the blanks and email to  Let me know if you need any assistance or have any questions.
When taking measurements, do not allow for growing room.  I allow for that myself.  Fit the tape measure snug but not cutting into your daughter's body.   
(If you are unsure about any of these measurements listed, feel free to contact me and I will help you.  Some of my customers use the assistance of a family member or friend who is familiar with sewing to assist in taking the measurements.)
