Please be advised, that nearly every tulle, lace or chiffon color (with very few exceptions, such as whites) is a hand dyed one. Therefore every garment is unique and slightly different. For example, if you ordered a "Baby Pink" color skirt before, and would ask us to make another, that would match the first one by 100%, we could not guarantee that. If you need more than one skirt in exactly matching tonal shades, you need to order them all at once, for example, for a bridesmaids party. In that case we are able to make them exactly identical in color. The color chart is a general and a pretty good idea of a color you'd be getting, but it shows the color in a "swirl of tulle", and every skirt does still come out unique in a way, when lining and waistband is added. For some specific and exact color, photo references are always welcome and we do successfully recreate colors of it to major extent. For an exact color match, please mail us a sample and we will make sure your new item will match the rest of your outfit.
They are made to your measurements. We have extensive video tutorials showing how and where to measure - and you can also simply take our measurement list from the video description to any tailor if you do not wish to attempt measurements at home with a help of a friend. Many do it at home though and it turns out just fine - we usually spot an error if any occurs.

Due to our crafting queue, we do not need your measurements at the time of the order - you can purchase the listing to reserve the timeline and fabrics, and provide them within couple of weeks or even more, depending on your own deadline (we need 3-5 weeks post measurements, depending on the volume of the order). If you have them ready though, you can simply paste them in the "Notes to seller" section, you will find this in your cart when checking out. Alternatively you can just message Inge on Etsy and give her the list of measurements at any time you wish.
We cannot be sure of that, as there can be many reasons to discontinue a product, most important of which is - fabric supplier discontinues a certain fabric. Therefore we strongly advise and encourage placing your order early to reserve the fabrics we have in stock, as well as the timeline, for when you are ready to provide your measurements. We can wait as long as you need, just leave us 3-5 (depending on the volume of order) weeks to make the garments after you provide your measurements.
Most likely, yes, but please do write to us and send a color reference photo along with your inquiry. Simply naming the color (e.g. "blush") is not enough, because there can be dozens of blush shades, and you and I can imagine different ones. We want you to have just the shade you love and want to wear. Most materials we hand dye - tulle, lace, chiffon - therefore multiple color variations are available, as well as ombre and layered effects.
We do, if we are able to. Please message us with your deadline and location and we will be able to tell you right away if we can meet it. We do not charge anything extra for rush orders - we are either able to schedule it in or we are not, and we already use DHL Express Worldwide shipping for your garments and it takes mere days to be delivered, so there is nothing to upgrade in that regard.
