Request a custom order and have something made just for you.
You have asked, and I have answered! I have had many requests over the years to do custom orders for these shirred dresses, and now I am offering this service in my Etsy shop!

Custom orders are made using material supplied by the customer, or myself. New or used materials may be used to make your dress. We will work together to decide what will be best for you.

PLEASE NOTE: The price of this custom item does not reflect the cost of material if you want me to go and buy it. If you are NOT supplying your own material, message me first, and I will alter the price of your purchase accordingly. I am willing to go material shopping for you, at your expense. Once payment for materials has been made, I will make your dress.

Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery of your dress. Making your dress takes time, and so does mailing it. If you are supplying your own material, please give me five to ten days from the time the material arrives to get it back in the mail to you. All customers will be kept up to date on where I am in the process with Etsy convos and emailed pictures.

Local orders ( Sooke, BC) must also be paid for through this shop, but we can take measurements in person if you so choose. No shipping charges will apply.


Measure your bust, hips, waist, and the length from the top of your shoulder, to where you want the top hem of your dress to sit on your bust. (for strap length.) If you have any other measurements that you think would be helpful for dressing your body type, measure that as well. Decide how long you want the dress to be, and measure yourself from where you want the top hem on your chest, to your desired bottom hem. Enter these measurements in the "note to AbigailRoad" section at checkout.

Decide if you want thick or thin straps, straps that tie up at the shoulder, or a halter top, or strapless. ( see photos for ideas)

If you are supplying your own material, make sure that you are supplying me with enough fabric to finish the project. A couple extra yards of material than what you think you need is always a safe bet. I will return any extra material if you like.

If you want me to purchase you material, or choose my own, have ideas ready for colours, patterns, type of material, etc. Email me pictures if possible. I will not promise to find you EXACTLY what you are looking for, but I will do my best. Remember that you are responsible for payment, so the type of material is totally up to you, and your budget. I will forward all receipts for material purchases to you with the final product.

Read my shop policy section for return policies,etc.

If you have any other questions, send me a convo! Thanks!
