FAQS Just for you! 

There is noting like stating the obvious in a blog post but I do get asked these question  and if you haven’t read my FAQ page then I thought I would iron out the answers for you. 

Grab a cuppa and lets get stuck in. 

I’VE FOUND MY PERFECT DRESS; DO YOU DO REPLICA’S?

I do NOT make direct copies and this is something that I am not comfortable with doing. I know it sounds harsh but I’ve spent years and sleepless nights! (at uni) developing my skills and learning my craft. However, I am happy to take ideas and elements as inspiration to help me design your dress or outfit. 

HOW LONG DOES A BESPOKE GARMENT TAKE?

Handmade leather jacket:

If you are looking at a personalised jacket please allow 6 weeks to get in touch but it can be made within 3 to 4 weeks, depending on design.

Jackets that are ready to buy from my shop can take 2 to 4 weeks depending how busy I am.

Bespoke clothing:

The process of a made to measure outfit can take 6 to 8 weeks (depending on the garment been made) with a final fitting required to ensure the perfect fit and finish.

Wedding dress / Bridesmaids:

A custom wedding dress takes time and skill and can be completed in 5 months but if you were looking for a lot of detailing I would recommend 8 to 9 months as this process cannot be rushed.

HOW MUCH IS A BESPOKE DRESS/ OUTFIT?

It’s hard to give you a exact price when it comes to bespoke as prices can differ depending on style, fabrics and design details.

As a guide price:

bespoke garments from £300

leather jackets from £218

wedding dresses: from £800

I take 50% deposits after the quote has been finalised and I do offer payments plans for the final payments. This can be discussed in the consultation 

I offer a free consultation where all of the above will be discussed.

DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?

Yes, all my bespoke work is by appointment only.  You can contact me here to arrange a free hour consultation. 

WHEN WILL MY ORDER BE READY?

I aim to have your dress or outfit ready 2 weeks before, if you have a specific date please state this in the consultation.

HOW MANY FITTINGS WILL I NEED?

It all depends on the design and style of the dress, but as a guide it can take 2 to 4 fittings.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN’T MAKE MY APPOINTMENT?

Please let me know if you cannot make you appointment and we can reschedule.

Please arrive on time for your appointment so we have plenty of time to go through everything, if you are running late please contact me ASAP as we may have to reschedule.

DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS?

As all my garments are individually made to measure, I do not offer refunds on dresses or deposits.

 

I hope this has helped give you an outline of any questions you may have but as always please drop me a messgae if there is anything I haven’t mentioned.
