Description

Turn tradition inside out in this stunningly seductive Gothic wedding dress. It’s sculpted to enhance your curves and trim your waist to perfection. The peekaboo neckline swoops low enough to reveal a steel boned corset beneath.

This design makes your legs look like they go on for days. In front is a micro-miniskirt trimmed in 8 inches of decadent Venice Lace. The back of the dress is ooh-la-la long - a full bustled back with a slight train. You can’t walk while wearing this dress. You’ll be strutting instead!

Are you bold enough to become a Victorian Vixen?

This custom made gown includes the following items:

(1) Steel Boned Corset ~ for a beautiful hourglass silhouette
(2) Velvet Venise Miniskirt ~ to accent and adorn your hips
(3) Victorian Dress Jacket ~ for that feeling of drop-dead decadence

Auralynne was a delight to work with. I ordered this for a wedding gown, but in plum & black. Her communication was great, as I requested several alterations to the design, and she was very patient with all of my questions. Absolutely beautiful when it arrived -- her instructions with regard to supplying measurements were clear, and it fits perfectly. Very happy customer!!! :-)

Auralynne has knocked it out of the park again!
I ordered these shorts with custom measurements because I have a smaller waist and larger hips/butt. Often fitted, stretchy shorts & pants dip unattractively low in the back to accommodate my backside. I convo’d Auralynne with my measurements, shared my concerns about fit, and included photos of myself. She got back to me promptly and assured me she could adjust the pattern so that the waist of the shorts fall at the right height in front and back.
And... the shorts fit PERFECTLY! Thanks sooo much, Auralynne!!

Custom Made Items
- (`¯`•.,_.^._,.•`¯`) -

I'm afraid that I cannot offer returns on custom made items. The caveat is this, however: If I make a mistake, I will consider it fully my responsibility, and fix it. Thanks to a level of perfectionism bordering on neurotic, I've been sewing things via online orders since 2006, and can count the total number of mistake related returns, on one hand, and have fingers left over. I've even caught a good number of customer mistakes (incorrect measurements) because of my policy to ask for a re-measurement when a number seems off.

My patterns and my designs are at least partially adjustible, with elastic waistbands in all skirts, waists that can be loosened or tightened with ties or corset lacing, and pattern shapes that are designed to fit multiple styles of figures. If you have concerns about fit because of an unusual body shape, please contact me before placing your order. I may want to tweak my pattern to be sure your gown fits properly.

If you receive a custom made item from me and are not pleased with the fit, my next step is to try to determine what went wrong. I'll ask you to re-measure yourself, and put the item on and take pictures. If I determine that I made a mistake, I will fix it. If we find that it was caused by incorrect measurements or a mistake on your part, I'll feel terrible, but I will have to insist that it be your responsibility.

Please be sure to measure yourself properly - and get a friend to help if at all possible. Be sure you are reading the tape from the right end, and double check if something seems off (I.E., a waist measurement larger than bust or hips).

Also, if you are measuring yourself to determine your size, my sizes run about a half to a whole size large. Sometimes a Medium in store will be a Small in my sizes, and so on.

Cancellations
(`¯`•.,_.^._,.•`¯`)

I accept cancellations on any in-stock order that hasn't shipped yet. If I'm making you something, I can accept a cancellation as long as I haven't ordered anything yet, or started sewing your order.

Shipping policies

I ship all orders via USPS. When you check out, you’ll choose between First Class Mail (if the item is a light enough weight), Priority Mail, and Priority Express Mail.

I do not ship via UPS or Fedex.

- (,_,.•`¯`v`¯`•.,_,) -
Domestic (US) Orders
- (`¯`•.,_.^._,.•`¯`) -

First Class Mail: 2-5 days
Priority Mail: 2-3 days
Express Mail: 1-2 days

I'm in Rhode Island, so if you live in or near New England, your shipping time should be near to the lower numbers listed.

- (,_,.•`¯`v`¯`•.,_,) -
International Orders
- (`¯`•.,_.^._,.•`¯`) -

First Class Mail International: Average of 2 weeks, up to 8 weeks if held up by customs
Priority Mail International: 6-10 days if not held up by customs
Priority Express International: 3-5 days if not held up by customs

International shipping times can vary greatly, and none of the above services guarantee on-time delivery. My personal experience with each of the services, is the following:

First Class International packages get delivered within 21 days, about 99% of the time.
I haven't yet seen a Priority Mail International package run later than 10 days - but I have heard that it can happen, and late packages are usually delivered only a day or so past the schedule.
I've only shipped Priority Mail Express a couple times - but I believe it should be just that much more secure than regular Priority.

I do insure ALL international packages against loss, and that insurance is included in the shipping total.

International customers please note: I am afraid that I cannot falsify customs forms. Etsy automatically marks the customs with "merchandise" when I print labels, and since I insure all packages worth over $100, I cannot declare a value other than the insured value of the package.

FAQs

I can’t take on any order that would require drafting a custom pattern. I’m afraid that I stay too busy with orders from my own designs!

If you aren't dead set on an exact design, and think that your concept could be made using my existing patterns, feel free to contact me. I have a fair number of pretty patterns already drafted. The range of them can be seen in my online portfolio:
http://www.auralynne.com/portfolio
In-stock skirts and tops are priced at a 15% discount, so a version made from your choice of fabric/trim will cost about 18% additional. “Photoshoot Special” skirts and tops are priced at a 20% discount, so a version made from your choice of fabric/trim will cost about 25% additional.

Custom gowns and outfits are a bit more complicated. The custom made items will cost extra, but your corset, and underpinnings (bustle/underskirt/etc) will be at the same price. Typically the price difference works out to about 10-20% additional for a custom version of a photoshoot special gown, and 5-15% additional on a custom version of an in-stock costume.
To start the custom order process, please send me a message containing the following information:

1. Your measurements - bust/waist/hips, and height.

2. What you wish to order.

3. When you need the item by - and if you are not in the US, your location.

4. Your budget, if applicable.
If you are purchasing an item that is in stock (check the listing title for "Ready to Ship" or similar) - then I will ship within 10 days time - almost always within 2 business days. The 10 day window gives me extra time to re-stock bundled items like underskirts and bustles, if needed.

My turnaround time for custom orders is 6 to 8 weeks plus shipping.
Yes I do, when possible. Rush orders add on 15% to the cost of the item, to cover my overtime hours. Often, however, I even book all possible overtime hours, so when possible, please allow plenty of time to receive your custom made order!
I’m afraid that I do not usually send order updates. I haven’t yet found a way to automate the process - and you would be surprised how much time correspondence can take when my shop is busy! So I prioritize sewing over order updates, to be sure I do not run late on my custom orders.
I offer split payments - 50% down, then 50% plus shipping. The terms for split payments are as follows:
$300 minimum order amount.
I add on a $2 fee for this service.
I send an invoice via Paypal for the total, which allows a half payment.
The first payment is due when you place your order. When I receive it, I'll reserve your space in my schedule.
The final payment is due before I'm scheduled to start on your order.

If you need a specific amount of time to be able to make the final payment, just let me know, and I'll be happy to schedule your order accordingly.
