About

Contrast and Comfort for Lost Souls and Wise Witches

I love contrast; the contrast between light and dark, the contrast between hard and soft. I like style that's distinctive, that has an identity, that has something to say. I like carefully curated looks and meticulously composed images.
Unfortunately, I also very much like comfort.
And so getting dressed has become a constant game of give and take for me, as I found that the styles I loved were often anathema to comfort.
I started Lygophilim with the mindset that I would find that balance between aesthetics that have something to say and wearable clothes that were reasonably comfortable.
I've made a conscious choice to use quality fabrics and to buy from Fair Trade and Cruelty Free sources, rather than hunt the cheapest price at any cost.
I draw inspiration from classically dark sources like gothic architecture and literature, but also from my love of mythology, folklore, history, nature and pop culture.

Lygophilim is my heart of darkness, my pull of the moon. It's the Lost Soul that wanders the forest, the Wise Witch that sees through the veil and the eternal renewal of the New Generations.

Frequently asked questions
Why don't you ship right away when I order?

Every piece that you buy is made by my hands after you order it. This enables me to adjust hems and sleeves if you are shorter or taller than average and even to do small sizing adjustments if you fall between 2 sizes! (Just send me a message before you order)

I process orders in the order I receive them, and so, 10 business days (2 weeks) of processing time represents the time it takes for me to reach your order and make it from scratch!

Can I get things shipped faster?

Everything in the shop can be shipped with faster shipping options as offered at checkout, but this DOES NOT SHORTEN THE PROCESSING TIME.
If 2 weeks of processing time is just too long and you're REALLY in a hurry, please contact me BEFORE ordering. I will do my best to accommodate your time frame, although during busy months, that might require a small extra fee.

I've seen comparable pieces for much less. Why do yours cost more?

I am very careful about the materials I choose and only buy quality materials from reputable distributors. I do my best to avoid any materials that could possibly have been made in unethical environments. I skip the lower cost materials because I cannot ascertain their origin.

I also have to factor in cost of electricity and use, maintenance and replacement of tools, as well as Etsy and Banking fees.

I believe my skills and time is worth more than minimum wage, as I have spent time and money gaining the training and developing the ideas that enable me to create Lygophilim products.

As a point of reference, most of the Lygophilim pieces use at least 15$ of materials (some use up to 80$) and take anywhere from 1h30 to 6h to make.

Custom and personalised orders

I will gladly do custom sized versions of any of my pieces as well as make any of them in any of the fabrics already in use in the shop, although I might require a small extra if the fabric is more expensive than the original, or the sizing requires extra patterning work.

For a fee, I will gladly do small modifications to my existing models, such as changing the length of a shirt, the type of sleeve or the shape of the neck or collar.
Most of my pieces can also be converted for a masculine silhouette. Enquire BEFORE buying!

I WILL NOT:
- Act as a seamstress for someone else's design
- Copy someone else's design
- Make pieces in a fabric I do not have on hand
- Modify my designs in a way that no longer fits with my general aesthetic.

Sizing details

WARNING: Standard sizing varies greatly between continents and countries.

Every piece in the store is accompanied with a Lygophilim sizing chart. This chart is indicative of BODY measurements, NOT garment measurements. Please take the time to verify your measurements very carefully.

If you fall between sizes, consider sending me your exact body measurements so I can ensure a perfect fit!

3X and 4X sizing is available on ALL pieces. Consult the intro message on the shop front page for exact measurements.

If you are unsure how to take your body measurements, please contact me, I will gladly help you! ^-^

Care instructions

All care instructions are written in each product's description page, as well as on a care label, sewn inside the garment. Please consult it carefully.

When in doubt, pieces should be washed in cold water only and laid flat to dry. Velvet, mesh, cotton jersey and lace will all last longer if they are washed with similar fabrics and kept away from the tumble dryer.

Chiffon and delicate lace pieces should be hand washed or washed in the delicate cycle if your machine has one and separate from any clothes that have zippers, hooks, buckles or anything else that could snag.

Wholesale availability

Lygophilim pieces can be ordered as wholesale.
