How to Special Order

Siri has many styles available for immediate shipping shown on our website: In Stock. However, due to the enormous selection of styles, fabrics, colors and sizes that Siri offers, your selected garment(s) may not be in stock and may need to be special ordered.  Please view our listing of a Siri Retailer located near you to special order.  If there is not a Siri Retail Store in your area, you can special order directly from Siri.

Begin by selecting the garment style, fabric and color and then proceed with the following steps.

Measurements and Sizing
Siri dresses are not customized for the individual body. The fit of each Siri garment is based on the Standard Size Chart showing measurements of the bust, ribcage (empire line), waist,  high hip and thigh/bottom.  These measurements are of the body not the dress. You can have your measurements taken by a professional tailor or you can measure yourself following the video and the instructions on the Standard Size Chart page

Compare your measurements to the Standard Size Chart and choose the size that is the largest of your five measurements. An exception is that A-line skirt styles can accommodate larger thigh/bottom (not high-hip) measurements.  If you have any doubt of what size to select, a Siri consultant can help you determine the size to order.  Lengths on tea and knee length dresses vary by style.  Please see the style’s detail page for that style’s specific length.  Because dresses are standard sizes per the measurement chart, you may need additional alterations to achieve a custom fit.

All garments are produced in sizes 2 through 20. If the garment is not produced in size 0, 22 or 24 or if your measurements are smaller or larger than the standard size chart, Siri can make a custom pattern for you.  The charge is determined by the style and measurements.  Please visit your nearest Siri Retail Store or the Siri Boutique to order a special size. If you are unable to visit a Siri retailer for a custom pattern order, please email for a special pattern form and for pricing.  The customer is responsible for the accurate measurements of the body and should expect that a fitting and alterations will  most likely be needed to be done by a local seamstress.

Siri offers a variety of fabrics for most styles.  If you are ordering dresses made from silk Duppioni, silk Shantung or silk Taffeta, they may show some irregularities.  These irregularities are characteristic of these silk yarns, are unavoidable and often enhance the natural beauty of the fabrics. They are not defects.  Also, slight changes to fabric dyeing may occur at the fabric mill, resulting in different dye-lots and which may vary from the swatch on the retailer’s color card and/or swatch you received. Colors on the website give only an idea of the color and should not be considered for the actual color. Photography and monitors usually cannot depict the actual color.

The detail page of each style lists the fabrics which can be produced for the style. The price of each garment depends on the fabric and size. Please email or call (650) 872-1100 for prices.

Additional length up to 5”, straps and extra sashes can be ordered. Please email for pricing.
All special orders have a 12-week lead-time. If the garment is needed earlier than 12 weeks, Siri can rush the production to be shipped in 8 weeks, 6 weeks, 4 weeks or 2 weeks for a fee.  The fee is determined by the style and rush time.

Siri ships via UPS.  Each Order form indicates the ground shipping charges. Expedited shipping is available: 3-Day, 2-Day or Overnight via UPS.  The charge depends on the destination and will be determined at the time of order. For international shipping, Siri ships via DHL to many countries around the world; the receiver is responsible for the custom details and broker charges. Shipping costs begin at $45 for Canada and begin at $75 for all countries.
