I ordered this lovely dress to my measurements and the result is more than I could wish for. Beautifully made & finished, fitted perfectly and was received by me within a few weeks of placing the order! Wonderful customer service from the House of Recollections. Thank you, from a very satisfied customer.

Une performance vous dis-je! Vraiment. J'avais besoin de cette robe sous...3 semaines, pour jouer dans une pièce de théâtre amateur. Fabriquée et expédiée sous 3 jours. Je l'ai eu sous 15 jours à mon bureau de poste. Qualité et taille (sur mesure) extra. RIEN A REDIRE. Je vais aller chiner sur le site , sûre que je trouverai autre choses à me faire faire sur mesure. Merci Thongbai

This turned out super-cute! I had them make it to measure, and it fit perfectly! It'll be great for an upcoming Art Deco weekend. The shop was also extremely helpful, custom-making a matching hat according to my specifications. I definitely plan to order from them again in future. The only downside of the dress is that the fabric wrinkles very easily, so it needs an ironing every time immediately before wearing. But it's worth it to look so fabulous.

We create high end 20s-inspired clothing just for you

My name is Thongbai, a self-taught designer and certified dress maker. I lead our team of 6 people in a pet-and-smoke-free sewing studio in Bangkok, Thailand, specializing in handmade 1920s-inspired clothing. Our goal is to create high quality vintage-inspired garments for 'real world' wardrobes at the same time helping party goers of 1920s-themed parties meet their needs for great party outfits that are not only well made but are also comfortable and body flattering.

We are a small team and take pride in our work, skills, services, and our contribution to help keep the Roaring Twenties alive in the 21st century. We enjoy every step of it from designing, making patterns, selecting materials, cutting, sewing, photographing, selling and packing the products to be shipped to great parties around the world. It is our great honor to create a dress for someone for their special 20s-themed event, organized not only to celebrate the present situation but also to appreciate our past, the value and culture of the Roaring Twenties.

Though there are limits to what we can do, we invite you to contact us to discuss your needs and wishes. Let’s work together to achieve our mutual goal, that is to get you an outfit that you will love and enjoy wearing at your next 1920s-themed party.

You can refuse it by not signing to accept it. The package would be returned to us in Thailand automatically, which save you from paying for the postage to send it back.

Q: I like this style of dress but not the fabric/color. Can you use a different fabric/color to make me this dress?
A: Absolutely yes, if we have the fabric in our studio. Feel free to browse through our shop and select the fabrics or colors that we use for other dresses. We will consider if it is suitable for the style that you choose. If so, we will use it for your dress. If not, we will suggest a different one.

Q: The timing is rather tight. Could you rush my order?
A: Let us know where you live and when your event is. Then we can advise regarding the timing. Most of the time we are able to prioritize rush orders. This is our special service and there are no extra fees.

A: Yes, we can ship your order with express shipping operated by the post office. The fee and timing depends where you live and the weight of the package. Contact us for the quotation.

* * Colors of products may appear differently on your screen * *

Please note that the colors of the products that appear on your screen may be different from the real colors. This is because different computers/cell phones have different color settings. We have two computers and one cell phone in the shop and they all show different colors of the same dress. So please read the product details of the true color of each item. If you are not sure whether it is the color you want, you can ask us to send new pictures of the item or the fabrics. We can also give you a more detailed description of the real color. If you are not in a hurry to use your clothes, order fabric swatches to see and feel the fabrics in real.
