Handmade For Your Special Day!

Each dress is important in a woman's life and I'd want the same for my daughter!

Artistic ~ Created one at a time not mass produced.

Fiber Artist ~ I spend a lot of time creating and hand sewing embellishments to make these very special.

Handmade in USA!

Photos clearly shown on ALL sizes

2013 ~ Due to high volume of orders in my other shops, etc I will only create a limited amount of custom size garments so book ahead! At times I may have to turn work away to be sure I am not rushed on those counting on me.
*All at different lengths for different ages/heights and occasions.

*Cool cotton for lovely summer weather!

*May fit her for several years due to adjustable ties!

*Toddlers on up!

It's not "how long it takes to make a dress" It's what weeks am I not booked up on within your timeframe so let me know first:
*Where you are located
*Date of your event
I'll get back to you quickly to let you know.

If approved via above it's about a week or more (2 weeks for wedding/bridal) to actually create the dress depending on what it is but convo me for timing letting me know your date needed by and where you are located. If I let you know I can squeeze you in, you need to order within 24 hours to hold your place.

Welcome to Etsy and my shop! Things may be new for you or at least ordering an important dress is ~ so I want to make it as easy for you as possible.

There seems to be a misconception about Paypal. Don't assume Paypal is money you need to have in your account. They take credit cards, deferred payments of 90 days or more and have buyer and seller protection for both of us.

If you are late looking for a dress, convo me BUT if I can fit you into my very full schedule you'll need to pay via Paypal right away. I need at least a down payment to secure your spot so if you need payment divided up just ask.

A lot of girls are waiting too late and very disappointed. There are not materials sitting waiting for you. They have to be ordered and suppliers can be on vacation, may be out of stock or send the wrong thing and then shipment is slow from them. A lot to realize! I'm always ahead a little bit on most things but if high demand it's tricky so just ask and I'll let you know where I have any open spots and possibilities.

Especially if you have a figure you are not finding available for you in stores or elsewhere, you've come to the right place but grab your spot!

I don't want to charge rush fees or rush shipping unless last option for your sake.
Hoping for a great experience for you!

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by!
I work in a smoke and pet free studio ~ Not open to the public for my safety.
Creating custom made to fit tattered, dreamy, romantic, old world, frocks and tops for every day and special occasions.

For Best Experience ~ It is your responsibility to READ size, length info and my policies. I cannot make anyone do that and am also not responsible for your failure to do so. Ask questions now before I create your item. I am happy to help!

Feedback ~ Unfortunately we as shop owners are not able to respond on the negative feedback we receive. I do want to say custom garments take care and planning on your part too. Information missing I do what I can to obtain but I also make sure you get your item within your timeframe.

These are not mass-produced and from some store where they pump out thousands. These I've spent hours creating for you and expect you'd understand I can only come up with what you've provided to me.

If you do not communicate to me prior to receiving there is not a do over button. Normally there isn't time to do over but if there is that is not on me because you forgot to mention things that were crucial to me knowing.

If the bride or anyone is not involved to begin with why have her involved after you receive not what she wanted? These are obvious breakdowns in communication and because many are buying too close to their events and in a rush there certainly may be disappointment. I don't know the law of averages on success rate on that but due to the care I take fortunately I am able to provide what I can that is humanly possible.

If you don't pay until 3 days before your event and expect me to get it to you early I do not do that.

If your hotel does not give you a package or you don't check for it during a four day bachelorette party thru wedding that is out of my hands.

Copying feedback from what earlier people left is not original even though you also bought the cheapest dress possible but expect it to be as dazzling as a thousand dollar dress in your mind.

If you choose a different shoe height, add a push up bra, put Spanx on after you gave me measurements after receiving the dress, yes the length/size will now be off of what you told me.

If you gain an extraordinary amount of weight in the last two weeks prior to a wedding or lose a lot it will change things so of course I am not responsible for the dress to now fit you obviously nor can do anything so late in the game so you will need Spanx or whatever and if lost weight the ribbons will just cinch it in closer. You need to remain same body mass from time of dress creation onward for optimal results and that is why I do not create more than a month in advance normally. If you want that, the fit will be your responsibility to fix later.

I look forward to working with those who can communicate, involve the bride right away if warranted and send me photos of colors, elements to exactly describe what you want. For example saying you want bell or cap sleeves without a photo of what you think they'd look like probably won't get the results you had in mind as from different periods of time were all unique so be specific so we can be on the same page.

When receiving your item:
Please try on with a clean face and neck. Makeup stains will cause the item to be considered "worn" voiding your ability to return for a refund.

Custom items: This may be a new experience for you! So glad you want to have something made with you and your specifics in mind not mass produced! As I cannot be there to take your specifics and see you in person, be sure to let me know specific information that is not only useful but vital to insure your experience is a good one.
i.e. Long or short torso, large bust (larger than C), tall, short, petite, etc are all important pieces of info I need to create the best fit for you. If these things are not shared with me, I cannot (of course) be responsible for a less than great fit. Convo and we can usually fix it but you'll need to pay minimal charges for postage back to you and alterations. Some of my customers send me a photo! That can be very helpful especially in a group shot and even with children. This gives me a good reference.

Business hours: Monday thru Friday but I do answer convos each day.
Allow about 7-10 days for me to create items in your custom sizing but I ship priority 2-3 days in the US to get it to you quickly! If any change, add on, etc, in addition to original creation, it will take longer to create and may be a pricing change. You cannot purchase then add on all kinds of upgrades for free. Depends on materials and hours to create but also I don't deviate much from my designs so may not even be possible. Please ask first.

One of a kind (one off/already made) are ready to ship on my next shipping date - now Tuesdays and Fridays.

~My Wonderland Dress was featured in the UK's ALICE MAGAZINE February 2010 issue "Alice's Fantasy"!!! Mine was the only wearable dress featured!

When I measure, I always leave ample room! If I say up to 40" bust then there is at least another inch or two ample room so not a skin tight fit.

Please keep in mind these may be hand sewn, tattered, etc as stated up front. They are not faulty, do not fall apart nor poorly made!

My garments are clean, pet and smoke free.

Sorry no trades, or free goods for bloggers due to high volume of requests and that is against Etsy's rules to contact anyone regarding that. Thank you.
Photographers ~ Due to extremely high volume of requests ~ Please contact me only if you have a Fashion Design Portfolio (weddings and sittings are not comparable (unprofessional models with arms in the air like in surprise throughout is not wanted) and I just don't have time to pour thru them) so please put the garments shots together in one place when trying to market yourself in that area. *Remember though contacting on Etsy regarding this is against the rules unless you are buying.

Like any customer, payment is due up front as I do not lend or ship things as my time is limited and most of the few fashions on hand (they're not made up sitting anywhere) and those I do have must remain on hand to be sold, UNWORN and/or shipped right out to magazines, boutiques and Artist Galleries my work is featured in immediately following their appearance on Etsy.

They're not available to borrow (I don't know you after all) and it's not feasible for me to have shot somewhere away from my studio especially in another state as design changes frequently and they'd already be outdated while I await their "hopeful" return some day!

I sell garments which are a lot to ask for only getting images for one dress back and comparable to someone asking to send your camera for 3 months which may or may not be returned and in other that new condition! We all know persperation in hot, humid weather I couldn't possibly resell the garment as my sensitive customers must have unworn and trust that from me.

Also, as your trained eye has noticed, if I have a few items done this way the rest won't sell. This way my items always look better upon receiving them as my photography is sub par I know! lol The few photos I do use are from satisfied customers as their happiness shows through to my demographic and to retain the overall look and continuity of my shop on purpose. What good would 1 dress with professionally shot items do? Incohesive!
Bloggers ~ Unless you have a following of 20,000 or more and the same genre and demographic as my style, please do not ask for my participation. I haven't got time left to create free items.

No sales tax in NH!
All sales are final. Sale or items on special are final sale.
Deposits for wedding or any items are non-refundable.
Not responsible if you've provided incorrect addres on Etsy or Paypal.

Custom made items are not added to my production schedule until payment is received/cleared per my bank and all sizing information has been received. I do convo you for that info if you forget to add to order.
USA - If you need it faster or different carrier, please contact me to make arrangements. (You will simply pay difference of charges).

Orders/payments reaching me Friday evening or throughout the weekend, will be processed beginning Monday.

Outside the USA can take weeks and is beyond my control and you are responsible for customs charges in your country.

I also use confirmation shipping in the USA which I can track, verify and prove delivery. If it shows it was delivered, you should check with neighbors, family, etc. I cannot be responsible for shipping to unsecured locations so will be happy to ship elsewhere for you like to your place of work, etc.

Non-custom items I ship USPS first class or priority if I run behind. Please convo me with any questions or requests for other carrier before I ship your order.

One of a kind are ready to ship and ship about 2 days after purchase/payment or my next trip to the post office.

Custom (made for you in your size) - take about a week or less to create but I then usually ship priority (in a box) in the US to reach you 2-3 days after that.

If damaged in transit, contact the delivery company (USPS) to file a claim as they are responsible and will refund you as you'll have the item and packing to show them. This is why I ship all items carefully packaged so the garment and it's ornamentation is protected as much as possible. I will help in any way I can.

*If after receiving, you have any questions or issues, please contact me and give me the chance to answer and/or correct. Thank you.
**There is only a minimal charge to correct sizing, etc if you miscalculated. I want you to be able to wear and enjoy it!
***Need tracking info? Just ask!
Refunds and Exchanges
Custom made: As normal in the industry and Paypal who protects artisans, items custom (made in your size), one of a kind, or limited therefore commissioned goods for you only, have no refunds/returns as an Artisan puts in hours of work on your behalf. You don't commission a painting then not pay or expect a refund right? Nor wear it for a wedding and expect to return it used?!

Any negative feedback you see is due to customer not giving proper sizing info and then not admitting that or giving me a chance to help!

These custom pieces will not work for anyone else and are commissioned unique pieces created just for you.
However, I work closely with my customers and can usually fix sizing, etc for a minimal fee if your error.
Please check measurements and have someone else measure you.
Allow for heels you may wear with the dress too otherwise it'll be too short. Reminders for measurements are repeated throughout my process i.e. in listing you purchase, email from Etsy verifying order, so I urge you to answer correctly and help make this a wonderful experience for yourself.

This way my items are always brand new for everyone and not something tried, worn and/or returned by someone else. This protects you! So please convo me with questions when purchasing and measure for a good fit especially length and I'm happy to answer additional questions you may have.

Hats, headbands and all headwear cannot be returned for hygenic reasons and everyone's protection.

Ready to Wear - Notify me within 3 days of receiving and return must be approved by me first to be postmarked within 7 days of receiving. Packaged in plastic bag to protect from elements and boxed to protect ornamentation or same way you received. Must be in same condition I sent as in folded carefully as well.
***RESTOCKING FEE of 20% due to my time and packaging, as well as Paypal and Etsy fee charges for approved returns/exchanges.

SALE or Items on Special - As is - no returns - there are no defects in these items.

Please contact me if anything is incorrect as I can sometimes make alterations. There will only be a small fee to make changes (if possible) or no change if my fault and shipping back to you but please contact me with questions beforehand or ask after receiving as I want you to be able to wear your lovely item!

If for any reason in workmanship or fit that is not right, due to an error on my part, please contact me as soon as possible or within 7 days of receiving or answer my convos and emails so I can make a garment adjustment but please give me the chance to correct. Of course if incorrect size info is provided to me or vague info like "ginormous needed" or instructed to just ship it in your haste, etc I obviously cannot compare that to anything to best fit you and you are setting yourself up for a less than optimal experience which is out of my control obviously.

If you need to return for size correction or any reason I've approved, it must be sealed in plastic like I sent to protect against the elements and in a box if that is also how you received it from me to protect it's ornamentation.

If not my error, and an exchange/store credit is warranted, I will recoup my shipping (within a dollar) when figuring what is due you as I do have to pay to get it to you to begin with plus Etsy and Paypal fees.

If it was a rush order (custom created in less than 7 business days or due to your request (especially if I also had to wait for your payment which took more than 24 hrs and took away from the time I need to create, there is a $20 deduction from any refund/exchange/store credit to begin with (if you did not pay that up front with order) and in all fairness you wouldn't wait for a payment, drop your schedule then work a whole day for free either of course. No one should be expected to drop their schedule and also sew for free and as all customers are important.

If you change your mind, you have 24 hrs to request a partial refund as long as item is not in production phase and has not shipped. I do retain 25% of purchase for my time, efforts, PLUS all costs of materials if I will not be able to resell and Etsy and Paypal fees. Items are not shipped until after this 24 hr period is over. You do not have the right to cancel because you found something else, or after the initial 24 hr period is over.

If you do not provide size or other information neccessary for creation process and do not answer then request a refund, a 25% administration fee will be deducted and the balance as a store credit only. My time and holding up my schedule waiting is valuable time lost.

If late to you and you didn't provide your exact day of deadline, I cannot be held responsible. You are asked a number of times thru the process for that vital information for me to worth within.

If lost due to shipping (USPS or other carrier paid and requested), I have to file a claim to recoup cost of item(s) and may need info from you to do so. It takes about 30 days for file to be paid back to me therefore, to you.

Please contact and give me a chance to correct/adjust before leaving feedback in all fairness. If you don't give me a chance to make things right, I can't be of much help obviously. Anyone whom has ever contacted me has been provided free adjustments if my error. Thank you.

See "Additional Information" below.

I'm sure by my feedback of many satisfied customers, you can see I am honest and want only the best possible fit for you! They also appreciate that no one else wore the garment then returned it especially with all the health risks now prevalent. Your safety is my concern.
Additional policies and FAQs
I reserve the right to cancel a transaction if in the best interest of my shop. Many stressful situations can arise but if I am being badgered, bullied or uncomfortable with demanding people and whom I feel by tone and convos will be unhappy no matter what I do, I will cancel the order. I must maintain a positive and forward workflow for other customers whose time for their garments is being affected because of.

Wedding orders - I do not usually ship months ahead of wedding due to weight gains or losses (stressful time for many) then being asked to correct as that is not included in pricing. But I do try to ship well in advance (2-3weeks) so you can receive in plenty of time if alteration was necessary. This is for your sake. If you demand your dress, it will not be covered for such issues. Thank you!

International customers are responsible for all customs charges and duties, and any other fees levied upon delivery.

Out of the USA will take longer to receive so please keep that in mind and that is out of my control. Usually two weeks to Canada, UK and AU. Elsewhere can be over a month thus why I removed shipping to elsewhere as I can't be responsible for their postal issues any longer.

OOAK (one of a kind) items cannot be reserved.

If you haven't had custom clothing made for you before, please know they are not mass-produced in the store and being made to fit only you.

Please convo me with any questions and make an informed purchase by reading as I state everything up front.

Change of heart - If you cancel your order at any time after payment and 24 hr grace period during it's creation (prior to shipping), I do retain 25% of purchase for my time, efforts PLUS all costs of materials if I will not be able to resell.

Not responsible for natural disasters while en route with the postal service.

Rush Orders as of 5/1/11- $20 fee minimum or 20% of total order if I rushed this for you.
*A rush order is considered a custom item(s) created and shipped in 3 business days or less per your request.

I reserve the right to cancel any order for fraudulent reasons, buying something reserved for someone else, etc.

*If after receiving, you have any questions or issues, please contact me and give me the chance to answer and/or correct. Thank you.
**There is only a minimal charge to correct sizing, etc if you miscalculated. I want you to be able to wear and enjoy it!
***Need tracking info? Just ask!
