Get pants custom made to fit you, in a style you select, in a fabric you love.

Hi, I'm Jane Mahoney. For years I struggled to find pants that fit me. In my younger days, I was an athlete. Pants that fit in the waist were too tight in the thighs. In later years as my body changed the challenge continued. Perhaps you find pants shopping frustrating, too. Maybe you find one pair that fits in the hips, but is too big in the waist. You try the curvy style and then the very curvy style and then you move on to another brand. Do you wonder who designed these ready-to-wear (RTW) pants? Certainly no one who has ever given birth or been through menopause.

Six years ago I launched a woman's custom tailoring business with the goal of helping women feel attractive and comfortable in their pants. Now I have the satisfaction of offering pants custom made to fit you in a style you select, in a fabric you love. To get free samples of our beautiful fabrics click here.

It occurred to me that men have taken advantage of custom clothing for years. Why not women? Why shouldn't women have the choice of custom clothing? Not only does custom clothing fit and flatter you, but it helps you compete with men and also stand out as a professional in the business casual office.

Your pants will be made by seamstresses who learned the trade from their mothers who learned from their mothers before them. Yes, custom clothing costs a little more, but I am committed to paying a fair and sustainable wage to these skilled women. I launched To Your Measure in 2011 with the goal of making custom pants (and now skirts) available to everyone regardless of where they lived. While I couldn't create a store front in every city, I was able to create a great tool to make measuring yourself really easy.

Here's how the fit process works:

bullet If you live in the Rochester area, call for a personal fit appointment at 585-473-6023. You can stop in and see our fabric samples and pants styles. If you choose to place an order, we will take your measurements for you. If you live out of the area, take your measurements using our measuring gizmo. The gizmo is a series of belts that measure your torso. This will be mailed to you upon placement of your order. Learn more about the gizmo here on the measurements page.

bullet We will use your measurements to make a muslin. A muslin is a "first draft" of your pants made of cotton. The muslin will be mailed to you for you to try on. You will then correct the fit by pinning the muslin in the area(s) that do not fit to your satisfaction.

When we receive the muslin back from you, we alter the pattern according to your requested changes. We then use the modified pattern to cut your pants. The pattern is kept in our files for your future orders.

bullet If you would like to make changes to the style you select, i.e. add or delete pockets, move zippers, raise or lower the waistline, these changes can be incorporated into your pattern.

bullet If you are not 100% satisfied with the fit of your custom made pants, we will alter them to your satisfaction or your money will be refunded to you.
