I love the quality of this item! ProjectU did a custom order for me, & it is exactly what I wanted. The Champagne Organza Bridal Sash with pearls is even more beautiful in person, than in the picture. I'm thrilled with this item & can't wait to wear it on my big day.
How I got my start
I started Project U in beautiful San Luis Obispo, California using thrift store finds, old prom dresses, and un-finished projects. Re-using old fabrics and re-purposing them into beautiful creations that brides and bridesmaids can wear on their special day is such an exciting way of letting my creative side play.
Ever the adventurer, Project U moved to St. Helena, California--thrifting and re-purposing along the way. Now located in East Sacramento, Project U has even more resources to create beautiful, handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces.
Looking forward, I hope to put my creative mind to work and re-purpose more items to encompass a broader range of unique items. I will always stay true to my roots and use unique and thrify finds to create my handmade pieces!
Around the web
I love creating custom orders, however due to my busy schedule I am only able to accept a limited number of orders.
If you might be interested in a special order, please convo me with the details of your request and I will respond. Special orders are accepted on the basis of color(s) and supplies availability and, of course, time availability. General turn around time for special orders would need to be at least 2 weeks from the purchase date, not including shipping time. I typically finish special orders in 3 days, I just like to say 2 weeks so no one waits til the last minute.
If you are unsure of whether I will be able to accept your special order request, convo me anyways and I will let you know.

Refunds and Exchanges
Why not?! Because I make each item by hand for you. A lot of time and love goes into each piece. And I wouldn't want to take back an item and give a pre-worn sash to someone else. I do not mass produce my items, nor do I have a warehouse inventory to "restock" items.
Please make sure your PayPal address is correct--I am not responsible if you accidentally have me ship it to your old address.
