HOW ITS MADE:
Your Cheri Bridesmaid Dress is a designer original sewn from super soft cotton jersey spandex stretch knit and is handmade just for you by Boss Lady Claire at her Los Angeles studio. Never factory produced, you will be proud to wear this American original created just for you in the size, style and color you choose (see photos for details). Every cut and curve of this stunning dress evokes the glamour of the 1950s updated for today's pin up! Fall in love with it's hourglass silhouette that is built for speed and designed to turn heads.

BUY A FABRIC SWATCH:
Hardley Dangerous Couture always recommends first purchasing a fabric swatch before placing your final dress order at my studio. I do not guarantee fabric color or texture over the internet. Click on the photo to purchase swatches:

FABRIC CONTENT: 95% cotton, 5% lycra

** If you need to order more than 1 dress set, please set up a Bridesmaid Order with Claire to receive your group discount! Please read the following details on how to arrange for your Bridesmaid Dresses:

1. Event Date. How soon do you need to have your dresses made? Group orders require a minimum of 8 weeks for our studio to complete.

3. Size, Style and Color: We need First & Last Name of each Bridesmaid or Guest along with their Size, Style, Color, Fabric and Dress Length in order to set up your reserved listing. Providing this in advance will give you a much more accurate quote as pricing varies by Style, Fabric, Size and Length at our studio. ** Cherrybomb Velvet dresses will cost more than Cherrybomb Ponte de Roma Dresses and are a completely different price from The CHERI casual cotton jersey dress. Floor Length Maxi dresses will cost more than a Knee Length Swing dress.

DESIGN YOUR DRESS:

**************************************************************************

♠️✂️❤️ HOW TO MEASURE ❤️✂️♠️
You will need the following measurements to determine your size at HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE:

BUST: Measure around the fullest part of bust (preferably with the bra you plan on wearing underneath your dress)

WAIST: You are buying a high waist style of dress and will need to measure 2” above your belly button to determine your waist measurement.

UPPER BODICE: Measure from top of shoulder to 14” down. This is generally where this stretch knit dress will fall at your waist.

FULL BUST or PLUS SIZES: If you have a very full bust or are a plus sized gal: you may request at no additional charge to have Claire add length through the torso to offset the otherwise Empire Waist effect that sometimes occurs based on your individual body shape and size. Please measure down 14" from top of shoulder to waist to see if this falls in line with your natural waist. Write her a message to seller during checkout if you need additional length added through the torso. NOTE: this customization will make your dress a final sale item with no Returns or Exchanges made possible as it will no longer be considered a Standard Size at HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE. Please double check all measurements for accuracy before submitting them with your order.
