The whole experience of buying from this seller was a pleasure! I asked for some specific changes and she was more than happy to help and make the amendments I asked for. She gave me plenty of warning that she was terribly busy and that I wouldn't get the parcel until mid November, and even included an adorable little note apologising for the delay! I am a U.K. size 18, and the skirt fits beautifully... it's even a little big! But she has added a little corset detail at the back so you can tighten it by a few cms. It's longer than I was expecting, but sits at a very flattering length just about at knee level. Overall, I cannot recommend buying from her enough!! Thank you so much for a fantastic experience! xx

Botticelli's "Primavera" is one of the most popular prints we have available. Choose the longer version for added elegance!
The detail in the first print is amazing. Not only you can see the tiny paint cracks over it, but the tiny brush strokes, too. Love tge details in this painting..

About

Stories to be sewn

Hello!
My name is Lauma and I'm the driving force behind Eat Me Ink Me since 2008! I've had passion for clothing for as long as I remember and I always wanted to make unusual things, but I couldn't possibly wear them all, so I figured I'd try and offer them to others!

I was inspired by Scarlet O'Hara character from the movie "Gone with the Wind" with her strong female personality and "I will get through this" mindset. I explicitly remember it showing in the episode, where she made a full Victorian outfit from green velvet curtains to make sure she looked her best.

I used to make one of a kind items only as I love the creative process behind each piece - I never had a strict plan, maybe just a general idea, that the end product would be "this shape" dress or skirt or something along the lines. It often started with a fabric, that often was a vintage piece I've found or was lucky enough to be given, that contained a "story" as I liked to refer it to. Hence the tagline - "stories waiting to be sewn". I see each printed fabric as unwritten story.

As more people started noticing what I make, they often asked for particular designs to be remade, so I started offering "standard" designs. They still had many variations offered in colors and finishing details, so each client could put together a design, that fit their personality and vision.

I am very thankful for being introduced to the lolita fashion as it has helped Eat Me Ink Me to grow in size and quality, as the lolita community takes nothing less than the best!
With many ideas floating behind my eyeballs, I can only hope to expand, get even more creative with the designs and get more helping hands, so I can make more new items out faster and with even better quality than before.

I always put my customer's interest first. I make the pieces best quality i possibly can, photograph in as many angles possible, give the most detailed descriptions, wrap the items in best possible way (I also often use recycled packaging!), look for the safest shipping method and make sure the customer is notified about everything. I highly suggest the customer to notify me when they receive the item, so I know everything is ok. Honest reviews are more than welcome! I also always encourage you to ask questions about anything you might need. :)

♥ ♥ ♥

All pieces have been made with love and care and if treated so will outlast us all!

SHIPPING TIMES (as practice has shown, note that these are not official post service times):
♥ EU: ~7 working days (I highly suggest French buyers to buy insurance, please reffer to "insurance" noted lower in the policies)
♥ US and Canada: ~10 working days For US buyers - if you add second part of your zip code, it might shave off a day from shipping (it sometimes works for faster shipping)
♥ Everywhere else: ~10-20 working days


EXPRESS SHIPPING
●I also offer express shipping, that starts at 21 Euros and goes up, depending on item size and weight.
●The express shipping guarantees the parcel to reach you within a specific time frame (please see here to see timing for your country: http://www.expresspasts.lv/lv/pakalpojumi/pasaule/ekonomisks/cenas.html (first section is the country name and last one is day count). For most popular countries express shipping times are as follows:
-- USA 6-8 days

-- France 4-5 days

EXPRESS DHL SHIPPING
If you have an urgent order you need within couple of days - contact me.

● Shipping rates with insurance start at 21 euros;
● If you wish to add insurance to your parcel, please let me know before placing order (s) (Sadly Express shipping cannot be insured, you can contact me for DHL option)
● I am not responsible for the parcel once it leaves my hands, if you want to make sure it reaches you, please contact me about insurance.
► FRANCE! If your shipping address is in France, I highly suggest to add insurance, the French postal service has proved itself flawed (I've had only 2 parcels lost ever in my 200+ shipping items history and both were in France).


TAXES
● I'm not responsible for taxes in your country, you should look into that before buying.


LOST PACKAGES

► If your order doesn't arrive within 30 working days for any type of shipping - please contact me, so I can try finding out the reasons (PO service doesn't check before 30 days) or I can recall the parcel for an extra fee (usually I cover it).
► Please refer to "insurance" above to avoid lost packages
► Sorry, can't provide refunds for lost packages. Please be sure to choose your shipping option carefully!
Refunds and Exchanges
● If you have any issues with me or with my items - please contact me BEFORE leaving bad feedback. If you leave bad feedback I can choose to stop replying and sorting out the issue. If you feel I hadn't provided a 5-star service, please let me know the reasons (either in the review or by contacting me), so I know how I can impruve.

● For regular items (non-custom) you can get a full (item price + shipping) refund 14 days after you receive the parcel, if you ship the item back to me (for your cost). But please contact me if there's something wrong with it and you're unhappy. For custom order see below under "commissions".

● Exchanges are negotiable, but just in case of shipping damage (note: I will never send out a damaged item!), not lost packages. Please save the box/envelope it was shipped in and contact me. We'll negotiate exchange item (or I'll mend the broken one if it's possible) after I receive the damaged item. (You pay for shipping it back to me and I pay for re-shipping it.)

● Please read all the information on size and materials before buying. I can't negotiate exchange because you misinterpret the description. If something's unclear - I'm more than willing to answer all questions and, perhaps, make a custom item if you're not happy with anything in the current listings.

►Colors might be slightly different due to monitor settings!

► I'm not responsible for missing packages (I do try and help to find them), no refund. If you're not willing to take any risks - please refer to "insurance" section on top.
Additional policies and FAQs
RUSH ORDERS

I don't usually ask for any extra fees for making a rush order on custom listings, but please contact me before making an order and take shipping/processing times into consideration, if you have a specific deadline for the item you want. If I can - I will try to fit your rushed order before others I might have, but please - let me know! I cannot make things in one day and promise unreasonable shipping times.

COMMISSIONS

● If you want something made just for you, message me with the idea and reference pictures and we'll sort everything out c:
● For any commission work I take half or full payment before (whichever is more comfortable to you) I make the item. If there's a second payment, I receive it before I ship the finished product out.
● Shipping prices might be different for commissioned work than listed items.
● For custom printed items - you can't cancel the order once the fabric has been printed, so please make sure you pick the right one.
● I retain rights to keep parts of the payment, if you fall back on the order (change you mind, don't like it etc) to cover material and/or labor costs.


MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION / COLORS

♥ Care instructions for most items can be found here: https://eatmeinkme.com/2016/09/28/care-instructions/
● If you're unsure if the item fits you, please refer to the size guide to make sure your dress size falls into the measurements of the item: http://www.trendyboutiquelv.com/images/womens-size-chart.jpg
● I often use vintage and/or recycled materials (I usually put a tag: recycled, upcycled, vintage materials, eco-friendly etc in the listing), so some items might have minimal defects (also usually note that in the listings). These are usually one of a kind and cannot be remade, but contact me, if you see something that has been sold and you might want it - I keep a little stock on the vinatge materials, if I don't have that exact material, I might have something similar.
● Custom printed fabrics (like Alberta print) are printed locally (not spoonflower). Usually on 100% polyester (or a poly mix material). The colors are vivid and are not prone to fading or washing out.
● I don't own a serger/overlock, so inner seams are zigzagged
● Most clothing pieces are handwash or can be washed on low washing-machine settings. If unsure - contact me c:
● Jewelery and accessories should not be soaked.
● Colors might vary from your monitor settings, if you're unsure of the colors - convo me and I'll describe them to best of my abilities :)
● Petticoats and other items are not included in the listings unless stated specifically


ALERGIES

● All pieces are made in smoke-free environment. But we have two cats, so beware if you have allergies

Most solid colored items are safe to machine wash, as are custom printed polyersters, for velvet and handpainted items - it's best to handwash and avoid rubbing at the print and disstressing of the flock of the velvet. If you're unsure about the care - be sure to drop me a line!
