castleseamstress' Shop Announcement


TURN AROUND (revised April 12 2015) most need by dates can be met on one appliqué items. I will need a minimum of one week before it ships. Special color shirts take longer since they need to be ordered and shipped to me first. Orders with Multiple applique can take as long as 4-5 weeks to complete.

DISCOUNTS : Free shipping is given to those who order 4+ items. Please convo me for the code before purchasing. I do not go back and credit shipping once it is purchased. I am happy to combine everything into one Custom order.

PETTIS: As for Pettis, There is an absolutely wonderful site called Chasing Fireflies. They rock Halloween costumes. They always have them. Other places I have seen them if you have a mall near you is TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Dillards, Macys, and if you have time...zulilly. For Zulilly, order now since they usually take weeks to ship to you. You can even try e_ay (can't spell it out since it is a big no no on here). They are on there and you have enough time if you order today for the super fluffy ones from China. This way is by far the cheapest.

Welcome to my shop! Please see turnaround times BEFORE purchasing:) When purchasing, please always include size and "need by" date. You are welcome to provide measurements such as waist and shoulder to hem (where you want the dress to fall). I will use these measurements to get the dress around those numbers BUT I will not remake a dress over them. I am not China. These items are ALL handmade by me. Please do not email me telling me that the item is too big if you have not given me measurements to check the item with before it leaves. I do not take returns, give cash refunds or refund return shipping for alterations. I have a 300+ positive rating for a reason-I know what I am doing and I am easy to work with. I take pride in every piece I make. The day I stop caring will be the day I stop sewing.

I am so grateful that you have taken the time to look at my shop! I really take pride in all that I do:) I am a mother/wife first of four boys and one girl and a seamstress second. I learned to sew from my mother when I was in the 5th grade. I started on Barbie clothes and went from there. Our daughter is already in the works to passing the tradition on. I have helped several young friends find this passion. I love what I do and love a challenge. I do this as a hobby to release my artsy side. That being said - when I reach my limit of too many orders or lots of family activities, I will put my shop on vacation so do not order too close to your need by time or you might find me closed. I shut down every year around Christmas and also from May to July for time with my family. I love being a Mom and doing all those Martha Stewart things (except jail:)). Let me know if there is something you want that you aren't finding and I will try and help.

****I DO NOT sell my appliques by themselves. Please do not convo me about heat bond appliques or picture exchanges. All other inquiries are welcome... If there is something you want and you need a more immediate response, please email at swimsres [!at]
