Description

So... You find the perfect dress. You love the fabric, you love the general shape, you cannot believe how right the price is. . . .B U T. But perhaps it's several sizes too large! Or the petticoat is too, too "tutu"! Or the straps won't stay in place!

Well, that gown might truly be the Perfect Dress! I can change it from a 14 to a 2, as I did in the case of the wedding gown you see in this listing. I can re-design that petticoat crinoline. I have magic by which I can cure those straps. I love to remodel "perfect" dresses to make them just right. I can create the ideal bustle. I can repair any areas of the dress that may have been damaged at some point.

The cost of transformation can vary considerably, depending on many factors. The price I am listing here is simply a wild guess. If you have a gown that requires re-sizing, remodeling, and various magical techniques, contact me and let's discuss your Perfect Dress's needs. Sometimes I need to do in-person fittings in order to remodel clothing. Sometimes, however, I am able to do the project without having in-person access to the bride. I sometimes work from measurements only or from well-fitting garments loaned to me by the bride. When in-person fittings are not possible, the bride and I consult together via written correspondence, phone conversations, skype conversations, or even youtube videos.

Please contact me if I might be able to transform a dress for you! The whole process can take several weeks or even up to many months, so don't delay.

Thank you to beautiful Greta Bucher for sharing these photographs that show her remodeled wedding gown! The photographs were created by James Souder.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept PayPal, check, or other payment methods that you and I may negotiate.

Returns & exchanges

All sales are final, unless you and I have agreed to some sort of trial arrangement BEFORE your purchase. With custom-made garments, particularly custom garments that are created from a distance (without on-the-body fittings), there is always at least some chance that you may desire some sort of alteration after you actually try on your finished garment. If, after you try on your custom-made garment, you decide that you'd like it to be longer or shorter or looser or tighter (or ANY other change!), you will have to have your local dry cleaner or alterationist make that alteration for you.

I do want you to LOVE your KathleenTemple, Tailor garments, of course. I invite you to bring ANY concerns or dissatisfaction regarding your KathleenTemple, Tailor purchase to me at any time. If you are not happy with our transaction, I will want to make it right with you!

Shipping policies

I will ship your KathleenTemple, Tailor purchase by USPostalService, priority mail, with delivery confirmation and insurance. I will usually be able to ship your custom order to you within a few weeks; let's talk about your timing needs. I would certainly contact you if I foresee any delay as I am working on your custom garment(s).

If you are ordering an item that is already created, not a custom item, I can usually ship within one day! I have some garments ready to ship in my other etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/kathleenmeetsmorgan

Additional policies

I welcome collaboration, trades, and bartering with other etsy-ers. I would LOVE it!
