Blended Thai Silk set in the Wedding style of Northern Thailand. The skirt has extra fabric that wraps around the waist which gives you the option to increase or decrease the waist measurement.
Genuine silk is derived from the silk worm (or another silk producing creature), it is an exquisite material that is difficult to care for, tears and wrinkles easily, and is expensive to buy. This item is a synthetic Thai silk, with its fabric being a mix of other materials such as polyester or rayon, resulting in a much stronger easier to care for fabric with a good sheen at an affordable price. Please see the Silk and eBay, Understanding Synthetic & Genuine Silks guide for more information.
- 1 inch (1") = 2.54cm.
- The given sizes are approximations only, exact measurements may vary.
- The items label may not match the advertised size, Asian labeling can be non-standard and we will often market an item according to European standards.
- To compare sizes take a similar item of your own that fits well and lay it flat, smooth it out and make sure it is buttoned or zipped if applicable. Use a tape measure to measure straight across, making sure the tape measure is tight.
- You may need to leave extra room for bulky items or for movement.
- We generally use the bust measurement to assess a shirts advertised size, but please check all measurements as Asian clothing sometimes does not conform to European norms.
- BAck height is from the highest point on the shoulder (not including collar if applicable) to the bottom hem.
- SLeeve length is from the top edge of the shoulder (normally at the seam) to the end of the arm.
- Yoke is from the top edge of each shoulder (normally at the seam) across the top of the shoulders and back of the neck. The Yoke is not straight across the shirt, it rises up at the back of the neck, passing the prominent neck bone.
- A common way of measuring sleeve length is from the prominent neck bone, across the shoulder and down to the end of the arm. This can be calculated from our measurements by adding half the Yoke to the SLeeve length.
- EMpire waist is the measurement directly below the wearers bust.
- Suitable for a range of sizing, we will give the range we judge this shirt can be worn by for Bust, EMpire waist and Waist measurements.
