Ordering your wedding dress:
Please ask ahead of time for a custom made dress as getting details set takes time as well as ordering fabric, making the dress and last but not least shipping it. For a wedding dress I'd recommend about 3-4 month prior to your wedding. I will not need all that time for making it but you want your mind free of worries for your wedding dress in the last weeks before your actual wedding.
I can make dresses for bridesmaids, too. Either the same dress in different colors or a certain color and/or fabric for different dresses. I cannot give discounts, though. But I can coordinate shipping like shipping more than one dress in one parcel which will safe quite a bit.

About

What you can expect from Gewandfantasien

Gewandfantasien is about unique wedding dresses, historical dresses and fantasy costumes made just for you.

I remember, as a child I always nicked my mum's and dad's hankies to make pretty gowns for my dolls. That kind of never stopped, only now it is real fabric and real humans. But I still love to make the pretty gowns. ;) Even though I am almost 40 now, married and with a small boy working from my home studio.

As a costumer myself I strive to make beautiful and at the same time fully functional dresses and costumes. You are supposed to feel great wearing them and at the same time kind of forget you wear them at all. They are made to dressmaking standard, not just some cheap costume. And as I struggle with weight for all my life, I know all the little pitfalls of making a dress for a real body. So if you have any questions about your dream gown, just feel free to ask. I will advise you with all my knowledge from almost 20 years of dressmaking on which dress will be exactly what you look for.

Making dresses for other people is really special, the more if it is a wedding dress. The best part about a dress made for you: you can decide how you want your dress to look like! This includes fabric, color, trim and even changes to the pattern like a different kind of sleeve or neckline. If you have a special dress in mind, we can work something out just for you, you are in no way limited to the dresses you see in my shop on etsy.

I know you can't try them on, you can't really see what the fabric and the color is like. I will try to describe everything as best I can and if there is enough time we can talk about sending swatches of fabric for a custom made dress. You will get a chart with pictures where and how to take the right measurements, too. And yes, your custom made wedding dress would probably cost less than one bought in a wedding studio. Cause I don't charge 50% extra only because it is your wedding.

If you want to indulge in beautiful pictures of my costumes and get information about new and special offers, please join me on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Gewandfantasien/

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I offer many dresses and costumes which will be custom made for you. You pick the fabric and the color and I will make the costume to your true measurements.

Basic line costumes have a limited range of fabric and color to choose from and you can't alter the cut of the costume.

Ready made items can be adjusted to your length but the design and everything else is fixed.

I am happy to take custom orders based on your own design as well. Just send me a message asking for a custom order.

Sizing details

READY MADE
For ready made items the sizing is stated in the listing. Dresses and other costume items can be adjusted in length and some can be adjusted for a smaller size. If you want me to adjust the item, it turns into a custom made one which cannot be returned.

BASIC LINE
For any costume which belongs to the basic line, you find a sizing chart in your listing. Please pick your size.

CUSTOM SIZING
For any custom made item, sizing is done based on your true measurements. You get a list with measurements and sketches on how to take them. It is easier and more accurate if you have a second person to help you.

If you have any questions regarding your measurements, please ask right away.

Rush order and express shipping

For ready made items, there is always the option to choose express shipping at checkout.

For any costume I make for you, you can add express shipping. Please ask me before you order the costume and I will add the option. This will only reduce the time for shipping, not the time for making the item.

If you need something urgent, please look at the basic line. For this, I have the fabrics at hand and can make them on short notice. If you want to be sure to get your item in time, please ask before you order if I can make it.

Customs Duty and Tax

Your order is shipped to you from Hamburg, Germany. You may have to pay tax or custom duties for it. I do not know in advance if this applies to your order as I do not know all rules for custom duty for every country. Please check with your tax agency before ordering the item yourself if this poses a problem.

Buyers in the EU do not have to pay custom duty!

Payment Plan

I am happy to offer you a payment plan for orders over 300 EUR.

Please contact me about it before buying.
We will discuss payments and credit period and set them up according to what you can afford. I do not charge any extra for this, neither interest nor processing fee. We can lower or rise your payments according to your needs, just talk to me about it before a payment is due.
Payments can be made per PayPal or per bank transfer (EU ONLY!)

You will get the garment once the whole price is paid.

For custom made items, I do keep 50% of the price if you cancel your order as I buy the fabric and start making your order before you have the whole sum paid.

Ordering your wedding dress

Please ask ahead of time for a custom made dress as getting details set takes time as well as ordering fabric, making the dress and last but not least shipping it.

For a wedding dress I'd recommend about 4 month prior to your wedding. I will not need all that time for making it but you want your mind free of worries for your wedding dress in the last weeks before your actual wedding.

I can make dresses for bridesmaids, too. Either the same dress in different colors or a certain color and/or fabric for different dresses. I cannot give discounts, though. But I can coordinate shipping like shipping more than one dress in one parcel which will safe quite a bit.
