Custom handmade Vintage Bridal Couture!

Hi I'm Claire Marshall and I am the designer, owner and maker of all things HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE. I founded my shop back in the year 2013 and have been personally making each and every dress you see here at MOONBOOT STUDIOS since that day! I make everything by hand, along with my 6 semi-industrial sewing machines in my Los Angeles area studio. It takes 3 sewing machines to produce 1 swing dress or pin up top from my studio and knitwear is my speciality.

What started out as a few tops, then dresses has turned into a vision of what my HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE is all about. In just a few short years and thousands of dresses later, I am living my dream and I truly love creating my dresses for you!

HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE is Rock n Roll knitwear for today's Pin Up! Proudly handmade in the USA!

Sizing details

Due to the handmade nature of my designs, no refunds are issued due to "fitting issues". All items are hand cut and hand sewn to order in the size you select at time of purchase. Precise measurements are given in each listing (including dress length) for you the buyer to confirm all measurements before placing your custom order with HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE.

Return Policy Details

RETURN POLICY: All Sales Final. Your custom handmade dress, top or skirt are each individually handmade to order. That means Claire special orders the fabric, cuts the pattern, and creates each stunning item just for you. Your item goes into production immediately after each order is placed at her studio. Therefore all sales are final and there are no returns, cancellations or refunds issued. Any requests or demands made to cancel your order after completing your purchase will be re-directed to read my shop policies and then politely ignored.

Exchange Policy Details

Hardley Dangerous Couture accepts exchanges on a case by case basis only and within 7 days of having received your unworn dress. Any new replacement dress exchange will require 10-12. weeks to complete as I am otherwise fully booked. Buyer pays both shipping fees to and from our studio and will be invoiced directly via PayPal to cover all costs associated with shipping your new replacement item(s) before it will be released for delivery.

Custom Screenprinted Party Dresses such as High Roller, Queen of Hearts and all other Specialty Party Dresses require 14-16 weeks minimum time to fulfill on any exchange.

Multiple Order Bridesmaid Dresses (Group Orders) require 16+ weeks to complete on an exchange basis.

Refused Package/Non Deliverable Package

I do not accept refused packages at my studio. If you refuse delivery of your custom handmade item(s) it is basically like giving your items away for free and you will not be reimbursed by HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE. If you provided a Non-Deliverable address: you may contact the Post Office directly to resolve this situation. It is the buyers responsibility to provide a correct shipping address and HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE is not held liable for any address the post office can not deliver your items to.

Why do I need to order all of my Bridesmaid Dresses at the same time?

It is ideal to have your entire bridal party place their dress orders together at HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE. We recommend this because we will submit your entire order together with our fabric supplier to ensure that all dresses will be made from the same cut of cloth.  That way color and texture will be consistent. Dye lot variances can occur when you purchase your dresses separately. The difference will not be drastic, but there may be a slight shading difference.

What if my wedding is less than 3 months away?

Yes, it is possible that we can still make your Wedding Party dresses for you, but please understand that you will need to pay Rush Order fee’s to ensure that the dresses arrive in time. A Rush Order fee for one swing dress is $36.50 per dress, and if opting for our Dress with Petticoat Set, a flat rate $50.00 discounted fee is applied to all Dress with Tulle Petticoat sets. Floor Length Dresses and Gowns require a $50.00+ Rush Order fee depending on the complexity of the design this may vary in price.
