What is a custom made garment?
Custom Made is something that is made specifically for you with your body measurements. A Pattern is crafted from your measurements, then a toile or sample garment is made to ensure proper fit. Once proper fit is established, we cut out of the real fabric that the garment is to be made in, and voila, you have a custom made garment that only you can wear.
How long does it take to make a custom garment?
Times vary depending on the complexity of the design and the materials. We can make garments as soon as the day before you need them, we just need a day in between for shipping. We do prefer to have plenty of notice, so try to plan to have your ideals sent to us between 2-3 months prior to when you need the garment, and for bridal 5-6 months. If you are in need of something rushed, we can do rushed orders as well for an additional fee.
Do you have ready made collections?
Yes, We have a ready to wear collection made of the softest jersey and spandex fabric made for everyday wear. It consist of shrugs, cardigans, pants, shorts, tops, long and short dresses, and swimwear.
