Thank you, the seller shipped promptly and the item is adorable. I may get it shortened though, since it looks too long on me. But it does fit me perfectly, so that is a plus! I highly recommend this seller!

Words cannot express the quality of the dresses. They were well worth the wait and the fit is just beyond belief. These have become my new favorite dresses!!!! Will definitely buy some more!

welcome! all clothing sold by bear & co. is 100% designed and sewn from start to finish with my own two hands :) I'd love to create one of a kind custom dresses with you - want something in your mind made reality? or wish that dress in the store was just a little bit different, or fit you just a little better? Send me a message and we'll see what we can come up with!

Since the reopening of my store my schedule has become a lot more crowded; I'm in school and sadly can't spend as much time on Etsy orders anymore. So, I will be implementing a sort of waiting list for orders. I think I will be able to accommodate one or two custom orders per month, aside from what is currently listed in the store. This will allow me to spend a lot of time carefully making a high-quality piece of clothing for you. I have yet to figure out the logistics of this, but just send me a convo with your inquiries/ideas and we'll figure it out! Dress requests will tentatively begin at $100, to give you an idea of price range. If you have purchased from me before, you will receive a 20% discount off your final quote :)

Payment
COUPON CODES
- Don't want pockets in your skirt or dress? Use code 'NOPOCKETS' at checkout for a 5% discount.

I accept major credit cards and Paypal in USD. I will ship your item after payment is made in full and cleared.

You do not need a Paypal account to pay for your items through Paypal:

Choose 'checkout with PayPal'. On the PayPal page, you will see an option that says 'Don't have a PayPal account?' where you can use a credit or debit card to complete your order, without making a PayPal account.
Shipping
DOMESTIC SHIPPING:

Your handmade dresses and other clothing are generally shipped by insured USPS Priority Mail in a padded mailer. Clothing is made to order and generally ships 4-6 weeks after purchase, although it may be much sooner depending on how my schedule looks.

Jewelry is packaged in a small box and a padded mailer for security, and shipped by USPS 1st class mail (Priority Mail for certain heavier items/orders), and is not insured (insurance is available upon request though). Jewelry ships within 3 business days after the payment is cleared.

You will receive a tracking number for domestic shipments.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

Due to price hikes by the USPS, Priority Mail international shipping prices have become a little unreasonable, so I am now offering insured First Class International shipping for all of my international customers. Priority Mail will be available upon request (estimated $10 extra).

The difference: First Class International shipping takes a little longer. It varies by destination but averages 7-21 days. Priority Mail averages 5-10 business days. Both services will have tracking information telling you when the item leaves the US. With Priority Mail, tracking information may be available in your country (your mileage may vary, sorry!) If you are waiting for your package, please contact customs in your country first, it is most likely there!

Please note that there may be VAT OR CUSTOMS CHARGES that may apply upon receipt of the order which the customer is solely responsible for. Please see https://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2010/shipping-how-to-custom-forms-duties-and-taxes/ for a brief description of what you may expect. I CANNOT mark items as a 'gift' - this is against the law!

I will ship to the address of the Etsy account used to make the payment, so please make sure your address is updated and correct!

GIFTS: International buyers: If you are shipping an item to someone as a gift, be aware that international packages require a customs form that will display the cost and a brief description of the item on the outside!
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your order for any reason please contact me within FIVE business days of receiving your package, I'll do my best to work with you to resolve the problem quickly. Each return is handled on a case by case basis.

Unfortunately at this time bear & co. cannot offer returns or exchanges on custom order items that are made to your specifications and would be difficult to resell, or on items that you have changed your mind on. However, I do offer alterations if needed on custom fit items. Even though the items are made to the buyer's specifications, I understand that the fit still might have issues due to individual body shape/height/preferences. I will gladly adjust the item after I receive it back, with the understanding that the buyer will be responsible for the cost of shipping both ways and an alteration fee.

So, please measure carefully and shop thoughtfully! :)

EASE:

The dress styles in my shop are fairly close-fitting, but there is wearing ease in the dress, which means a little extra room for moving/eating/breathing, in the amount of 1.5" at the bust and .5"-1" at the waist. So for example, a size S dress (34" bust, 26" waist) would measure 35.5" and 26.5"-27", respectively. This may vary with style, contact me if you would like to know the exact measurements of your dress.
