Custom Clothing Terms To Know  

For most people one of their biggest concerns in choosing custom clothing as an option is a fear of not knowing what to expect when you begin your custom clothing adventure. In order to get the most out of your custom clothing experience, it is important to understand some basic custom clothing terminology.


Bespoke clothing is an English term used to describe clothes that are made to order.


Term used to describe the upper part of a garment that covers the breast. The term is most commonly used in reference to a dress.


Term used to describe the end part of the sleeve where the material of the sleeve is turned back or a separate band is sewn on.

Term used to describe the edge of a piece of clothing that has been turned under and sewn.

Made to Measure

As you set out to begin creating your custom wardrobe, it is important to understand what terms will be used during the design process. These terms will be used during the fitting where you are measured for your garment and also again during the alterations process once the garment begins the completion process.
