A letter from Maria…
I understand the problems that you face when you’re petite – and it’s definitely not just that the hem is too long!
The fit problems start with the shoulders which are probably too wide, the bust point that is too low and the waist that hits in completely the wrong place. Moving down the distance to the hip is too long and the the skirt shaping wont be flattering. Lastly, yes, the hem will be too long.
Every Client at Maria Morris Couture is treated as an individual and has a unique bespoke pattern created especially for them.
This process starts with taking measurements to ensure a perfect petite fit. These include measurements such as shoulder to waist, and from the waist to the point of your hip which are crucial to ensuring a flattering finish.
Gorgeous Joanne chose an adaptation of our Tiffany dress for a special party. You can see the dress here (top) on our model, Zoe, who is a willowy 5ft 10ins tall. If you look at the middle picture of Joanne in her version you’ll see that it fits her stunning curves beautifully – but it’s only when you look at the bottom picture that you can see how petite she really is!
Whether you are a petite Bride, a petite Mother of the Bride (or Groom) or just in need of someone to really understand and celebrate the fact that good things come in small packages then I can help!
