This was a gorgeous re-make of my "vintage" wedding gown. I have already received rave reviews on the dress and I haven't even worn it yet. You're a creative genius and I just love my new dress!

Refunds and Exchanges
I am commited in making a quality handcrafted item. There is more then one way to create a garment or a handcrafted item. If you have question or preference for seam finish, garment construction or other construction preferences, these must be communicated to me in writting prior to the production of your special order. Otherwise your garment or handcrafted item will be constructed based upon my creative seamstress techniques, and the professional techniques I have learned over the years.
Alterations, changes and adjustments are your responsibility, similar as if you would have purchased from a retail bridal shop. I will use your measurements to determine the size that will be of best fit.
Because your purchase is a custom purchase, one of kind, based upon your preferences, fabric selection and measurements, I do not issue refunds or exchanges on these speciality orders.
Please take care in ordering and making your final selection. If you are ordering this for someone else, please consult with that person to ensure they are completely happy with your decision and the preferences you have indicated. It is best to be proactive and share your custom order decision with anyone who has a stake in your selection and purchase, prior to purchasing!
It is your responsiblity to consult with others who may persuade you in the purchase of your custom order. In the end, you are the customer, and I will do my very best to understand your custom preferences! Once the item is shipped and receieved I am unable to adjust or alter based upon others who may voice a preference that you may have not been aware of. I am creating this custom order for you my paying customer.
I find great satisfaction in sharing my talent with others who are interested in sharing in the creation of something specially designed just for them! One of a kind! With any custom order open and honest communication is the key to a successful happy transaction!

Your dress will be made in your dress size.
--- Alterations ---
As with all wedding gowns, your dress might require minor alterations when it arrives. Unless you live in the Omaha, Nebraska area, these should be done locally by your preferred seamstress. If you live in or are willing travel to Omaha, Nebraska I will be happy to schedule fittings and take care of any necessary alterations personally.
Bust - With your arms relaxed at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest. Try to wear the same bra you will wear with your dress.
Waist - Measure around your natural waist, usually about a 1” above your navel. If you place the measuring tape around your mid-section and slightly bend from side to side, it will naturally move to your natural waist.
Hips - Measure around the fullest point of your hips, generally 7-9” below your waist.
Length (from Empire Waist) - Measure from under your bust (empire waist line) to where you want the bottom hem to fall. Try to wear the same shoes you will wear for the ceremony. If you don’t have the shoes yet, wear shoes of a similar height (barefoot, flats, heels, etc).
Length (Hollow to Hem) - Take this measurement on the front of your body. Start the tape at the hollow at the base of your neck (feel for a small dip between your collar bones, just above your sternum) and measure down to where you want the hem. Try to wear the same shoes you will wear for the ceremony. If you don’t have the shoes yet, wear shoes of a similar height (barefoot, flats, heels, etc).
**Get someone to help you with your measurements, stand straight, keep your arms relaxed at your sides & breathe naturally. Lay the tape measure flat against the skin; don't pull it tight (it should not dig into your skin), or let it droop. The tape measure should be parallel with the floor for bust, waist and hip measurements
