About

Personal service and direct comunication are my priorities.

Hello,
I am so happy you have found my shop. I love making convertible dresses.
I have been sewing since I was a little girl, so for about 53 years! Starting out I made things for myself and was a 4-H member, my mom was the teacher. I married a dairy farmer when I was 27. We built our farm and milked cows in west Michigan for 15 years. During time I started sewing polar fleece socks, hats and mittens and selling them at art shows. I did very well with that for about 16 years. When my daughter got married, she asked me to make the convertible dress for her bridesmaids, which I did. They were a big hit so I started making more and taking them to my shows. Business boomed and I went full time making dresses.
I am sole proprietor doing all the managing of the business and sewing on my own, all out of my home.
I love communicating with my buyers or "my girls" and want every dress to turn out just right and look beautiful on the girls. If I am unsure about measurements you give me, I will ask to be sure we both understand everything. These dresses are variable in sizing, which makes it is possible to sell online without personal fittings. However, there are measurements needed to make the dress fit perfectly for each body type, including pregnant ladies!
I'll be happy to work with you to custom make one dress or a group of dresses.
I have a few dresses for sale in my shop, don't forget to check those out.

I look forward to working with you, Peggy Straathof

Shop policies

Last updated on November 16, 2016
If you are interested in ordering a custom made dress or a group of dresses, please contact me through Etsy messaging. Be sure you have your Etsy settings so you will be notified through email of any messages I send through Etsy.

If you are shopping for BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES, in your first message to me please include your wedding date, how many dresses you might need, what length you want. I will send you information on the ordering process including measuring instructions.

Free COLOR SAMPLES are usually sent within 24 hours of me getting your address and a list of the colors you want so see. Please check out my color chart listing for more info.

To place your ORDER I need ONE LIST of a few measurements of each girl. Please do not have your girls contact me individually. It is a more efficient process if all communication is handled through the person placing the order. All the fabric has to be ordered at the same time to be sure it comes from the same dye lot.

TRIAL DRESSES are offered with a $5 handling fee. We will discuss fabric, length and size. Color isn’t an option, although I'll match your color the best I can. If you'd like a trail dress, talk to me about it first, then you will purchase a dress from my shop at regular price including postage. A 7 day trail period is allowed. When the dress is returned, you will be refunded the cost of the dress minus the $5 handling fee. A $5 charge will be deducted from your refund for each day over the 7 day trial period.

PAYMENTS can be made by the individual girls or by one person. I will set up a reserved listing in my Etsy shop for anyone making a payment.
The fabric isn't ordered until all payments are made.

SHIPPING: The dresses can be shipped all in one box, individually or divided as to your needs. Shipping costs will be charged accordingly.

No returns on custom made dresses unless the fault was mine. I will do everything I can to remedy the situation.

Be sure to order color samples before placing your order to be sure there are no color issues.
I will supply you with detailed measuring instructions. Please read and follow them carefully and there shouldn’t be any sizing problems.
If something is wrong that was my error, it will be taken care of.

CANCELLATIONS: If you cancel your dress order after payments have been made but before the fabric is ordered, some refund will be available. This depends on how much work has been put into the order up to that point. If you have to cancel your order after the fabric is purchased, there is a 50% cancellation fee.
