Made to Order
Jessica Silk Spandex Shirt Dress
We recommend measuring yourself to check which Tahlo size is best for you before ordering.
- Measure yourself without clothes on for accuracy.
- Consider the fit of the garment. We include detailed fit information on the product page specific for each garment.
- Review the Product Style Information for our main styles, which will give you more detailed information on the measurements and customisations of a specific style. It will also rate the fabric for stretch and ease of wear.
Our General Sizing (Australian)

Our Fit Types
When considering how our clothes fit in real life, we take into account wearing and design ease.
Generally, our different fit types have a different amount of ‘room’ in them above the exact measurements to make wear comfortable, and achieve the design aesthetic of the garment. This is variable due to fabric and design specifics, but we have provided a generic range below of how much room to expect (in cm) to help those who are interested in this level of detail.
Note: This is an indicative guide only.
^ Waist measurements are too variable per designs to include in a general guide, based on fit, belting, tie waists, etc.
*Depends on specific characteristics of the fabric, but may be less than the measurement to fit tightly especially if in stretch fabric.
DELIVERYWe have two ranges: ‘Made to Order’ and ‘Ready to Ship’. They have different delivery windows, explained below.
Ready to Ship Range
Items in our Ready to Ship range are at hand and ready to send to you. If you make your order before 6pm your orders will be picked, packed and sent the next business day.
Made to Order RangeThe great thing about having your garment to order is that you can customise options to suit you, and choose from a wider range of figure flattering shapes and fabrics than would otherwise be possible. It also means you may just be the only woman in the world with that exact item, especially if you’ve chosen a limited edition, exclusive Tahlo print!

We aimed to design a shirt dress that would look great in the boardroom and be easy to wear everyday. Professionalism and comfort were top of mind in our design: we used a mao collar for easier care, stopped the buttons at the waist to avoid the risk of gaping when sitting down in meetings and used a cuffed sleeve for a tailored edge.
Made from a luxurious but breathable silk cotton blend to keep you comfortable all day while looking luxe, this dress can be machine washed (gentle cycle).
- Fabric: 95% Silk, 5% Spandex.
- Fabric look & feel: Lightweight woven fabric with subtle one-way stretch across the body.
- Lined: No.
- Functional buttons on torso so you can reveal more or less. Buttons are fabric covered.
- Sleeves: Cuffed sleeve to fall below the elbow (other sleeves options available in the Jessica Shirt Dress).
- Hem: Dolphin or straight hem.
- Extras: Includes sash belt in the same fabric. This dress has been designed with no belt loops so it suits different shoulder-to-hip lengths and can be worn with or without the sash.
- Relaxed fit - this garment is not designed to be tightly fitted but can be belted to flatter your shape.
- Length options: Knee length in short, standard, tall or a custom length of your choice. Changing the length does not change other dimensions of the dress.
- Suitable for Breastfeeding? While not designed for breastfeeding, this shirt dress has functional buttons at the chest which could be used for breastfeeding.
Care: Machine washable on hand wash / gentle cycle.
Model details: Our model is 174cm or 5”8 and a half, and wears a size 10.
