hiii and welcome to Garden Party!

the name garden party comes from the nursery rhyme "mary, mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow?" the rhyme goes on to name different things, all of which dont seem to go into the cultivating of a garden. my belief is that creativity comes from all places, and art is born from all things brought together through single prism of inspiration. garden party is my philosophy, i guess =} the comingling of different means to create a single object, the act of sewing is like a party! the growth of art and clothing like a garden in partial bloom. my ode to inspiration without which i would have no drive to create anything.

ughh ok i'll talk like a normal person now. but thanks for listening! and enjoy my clothes, they're my loves =}

C A R E !
please please please take tender, purringly soft and delicate care of these clothes. as always, when buying handmade handwash or dry clean only. i make all the items exclusively and try to create as polished of a product as i can but just keep into consideration the fragile nature of them.

( r e s i z i n g )
i also dont resize something that is already finished and ready to be sold. i've had to do this a couple of times in the past, and when i'm asked to resize something before shipping it out it ruins the piece a little bit. so if you see something available in shop and want to purchase it but its not the right measurements, ask me to do a custom instead (when im accepting orders) so that way the whole bit of it is perfect!

( c u s t o m s )
i no longer accept custom orders. i use to in the past, but i found that it really curbed my designing time a significant amount. i love doing them, its just that i would love to spend more time on coming out with new items. thanks for understanding!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
no refunds, only store credit. redeemable within 30 days of item return.
so this has been a bit of an issue. in the past I've allowed people to purchase some of my items and pay me later. but I've decided to no longer allow this. so if you do want to purchase something from me but don't have the money at the moment you can ask me to HOLD the item for you, but i will only hold the item for THREE days. after the third day, if i still haven't received a payment, i'll take your name off the holding and sell to the general customer.

i accept payments through paypal. i havent had any trouble with this as of yet, but if any one doesnt have a paypal account and would rather pay me by some other means just let me know. cookies/creme brulee are a great substitute for money.. mmm :p
Additional policies and FAQs
make sure the clothes will fit you before you purchase it. i post all proper measurements, in inches and not size, for each garment into the description so you can know if it will fit you exactly. it helps to know how to measure yourself and have a tape measure handy. i would hate for you to feel like the item of clothing wasn't the item that you thought you were receiving.

im about 5'4'' and my clothes have measurements 33, 26, 37 inches(bust, waist, hips) so that you can compare how the garment will fit you.
