Announcement    We moved our shop to mariahellerdesigns.com! The items still left in our Etsy shop cost 10% more to make up for the very high Etsy fees. Please visit our new website to buy!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are constantly striving to make the shopping experience better for our customers so from now on we offer free shipping on all the items in our shop. Also, updates have been made to both our shipping times and our image as a brand, so expect your orders to arrive much sooner than before!

From now on we will be keeping a small stock of the most popular capes. Once they run out of stock, they will be not available for a while, until be build the stocks back up.
We are just a team of 2, so building a small stock of capes can take a while.
Custom colors and designs are not affected by stock, so if you want something different just drop us a line and we will discuss further.

Thank you all for visiting!

SHIPPING

Some of our items are available on stock, ready to ship. Those items will be shipped the next day after you placed the order and will arrive to you in 7 working days max, anywhere in the world. All our orders are shipped internationally with a private courier, express shipping by air. Each order is tracked.

However, the majority our items are 'made to order'! Those will have a processing time - meaning we'll start making your item after you placed the order, and making it can take between 1 to 8 weeks! Please check the processing time of the item you want before ordering! Most of our 'made to order' items are custom made on specific measurements, or colors, to fit you and make you happy! We are also always open for custom orders and one of a kind or bespoke items. With such orders there is always a wait time. Items typically take between 1 to 8 weeks to be made, depending on complexity, and depending on how many orders we currently have open. If you need an item made for an event or a specific time please message us BEFORE ordering to ensure that your order will arrive to you on time! We DO NOT offer refunds for items that didn't arrive on time unless we guarantee the arrival date before ordering!

Because our items are custom we do not accept returns and exchanges, as we cannot resell customized items.

IMPORTANT! Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply.

Have e nice day! Thank you for visiting!

About MariaHellerDesigns

Sales 165
On Etsy since 2016

I'm a self taught designer, pattern maker and seamstress.
I studied traditional art (oil painting and graphic art) in high school and college and I always had a passion for art history.
Inspired by renaissance art and some history drama shows I loved, I started making renaissance inspired dresses for myself. Many people loved my gowns so I decided to take commission.
Everything I create is handmade: I create the patterns, cut out the fabrics, and sew everything together. My partner helps me by working at the sewing machine, while I do all the hand sewing myself. Everything that is embellished or smocked is done by me.
I don't follow standard sizes, but create patterns on the specific measurements of the buyer. I create a new pattern for each new buyer, which ensures a good fit. My items are truly handmade, created with love and care.
I'm always open for custom orders.

Production:
We use quality fabrics for all our items. We buy all our fabrics locally and we strive to produce as little waste as possible. We use as much of the fabric as we can. We always use the leftover fabric to create smaller items or parts. For example all our little capelets are made from the fabric that is left from making a big cape (fabric that would be otherwise just thrown away), we also use the leftovers to make the hoods, collars, sleeves or other small parts. We are a team of two, and we work from home. We only have one sewing machine so our production is truly small and handmade. Many parts of our items are hand sewn and we make each item with care and with much attention to detail.

Fair warning:
We have a cat. We lint roll everything very carefully before packing it but maybe a few little cat hairs escape our notice. So that's just a heads up for people with allergies.

    I create the designs, make the patterns, draft them, cut the fabrics and I do all the pleating and hand sewing. I'm also usually the one picking and buying the fabric. I am the one that answers all the questions through Etsy conversations.

    Helps me with various things, from checking with suppliers and purchasing the fabrics to sewing some parts together at the sewing machine or embellishing by hand certain items. She sometimes ships the orders and helps with photos.
