~ Custom Tailoring Service ~
We are happy to tailor our clothing to fit your specific measurements! We now offer this service as an
upgraded option on most all of our clothing.
The upgraded option can be found on each individual item page as it's own purchase button, it has the
additional fee for the tailoring service added. Just add it to your cart as you would any of our items and
put your measurements in the comments field at checkout.
Unfortunately, this charge only applies for basic alterations within the size range indicated on the chart
for that item, and up to 5" past our largest standard size. If your requirements fall out of those
specifications please contact us prior to purchase and we will arrange the details with you, as often a
new pattern must be drafted and there is an additional charge for the time required.
Many of our items are available in a range of colors at no additional charge! You can see swatches of
our fabric options here. If you would like something made in a color not offered please don't hesitate
to contact us, as we would be happy to help!
Please Note: Custom alterations take time, generally we can have your order adjusted and mailed
within 14 days but it can take longer during our busy seasons (Halloween/Xmas) and the more complex
the alterations the more time may be needed. For exact delays for customizing please contact us.
You can reach us via email anytime!
~ Sizing ~
The measurements you see posted in the listings are specific to each design, which is why a small in
one style may be slightly different than a small in another. You'll find most of our designs are available
in xsmall to xxlarge; these sizes are fairly standard through the catalogue.
We post individual measurements (rather than rely on umbrella sizing) because depending on the
fabrics and the cut of the piece the size may vary slightly from garment to garment- as is the case with
all hand made clothing.
We want you to have as much information on the creations as possible prior to purchase.
~ Determining Your Size ~
If you are ever unsure of a size or garment please email us, we are always happy to send you any
additional measurements or answer any questions you may have. We answer all inquiries within 24
hours. There are a couple ways of determining the best size for your figure:
The first is to find a similar garment in your current wardrobe, of a similar fabric (i.e. non-stretch or
stretch) lay it flat on the floor or a table. Use a flexible sewing measuring tape to measure from armpit
to armpit (if a top/dress/coat), the length -from shoulder seam or strap to bottom, and the
waist/under-bust if necessary. Double all these measurements (i.e. an 18' inch bust on a top = a 36 bust
circumference) and you'll be able to compare those to the ones posted in our listings.
The second way requires a little more finesse, you'll need a flexible sewing measuring tape or a piece of
string (and something to measure the string with).
Bust- Wrap the measuring tape or string around your bust while wearing your favorite bra, at the
WIDEST point- this is not the same place on everyone. Make sure it sits comfortably, you don't want it
to be too tight or the garment won't fit properly.
Waist- Measure your NATURAL waist, which is usually situated around your navel where skirts and
dresses may hang. If you prefer to wear skirts lower on your hips measure that area. Again, ensure the
tape/string is loose enough to be comfortable.
Length for a garment is best found by measuring an existing piece of the appropriate length within
your own wardrobe.
~ Fit Issues? ~
We are happy to exchange and unworn item for another of a different size if need be! This is not
possible, for obvious reasons, for custom sizing and altered items- please double and triple check your
measurements to be sure.
We do not offer refunds on our items, only exchange on unworn tagged merchandise.
Please don't hesitate to contact us for further information or with any questions!
