It is through personal experience that I’ve realized, that only those clothes that are custom-made for you would make you feel the most confident. As someone of a less than average height, ready-to-wear clothes never fit me right until I learned to make those dresses myself to my own measurements.
But not everyone might wish to, or have the patience or time to do it, and in fact, they shouldn’t have to. There are professionals who are there to do the job for you, and it’s very common for Sri Lankan parents to have a dressmaker make the uniforms for their school-going kids. And it is the same case with formal attire, party and wedding dresses, if not more so.
