Note from shop owner It is summer and time for play with my grand kids. #2 and #3 grandsons are graduating and going off to college; the six and eight year olds are ready to bake and go swimming with Nana and our long awaited granddaughter will soon be here.

About

Every bride is different and her wedding should be too.

As a child of four I first discovered the joys of beautiful satins, silks and laces when I visited my aunts who were professional seamstresses. When my parents could not find me, they knew to look in the workroom where I would be happily playing with fabric scraps!

I made my first wedding dress over 45 years ago; Since then, my gift to the bride for friends and family was the wedding gown.

Dressing the littlest members of the party is one of my special pleasures now that my seven grandkids are growing up. When I make a christening gown or romper, I picture the sweet little baby that will wear it and add another gradbaby to my circle.

I believe that each bride is special. If you are searching for the perfect gown with elements from different dresses you have seen or have fitting problems with ready-to-wear clothing, let me create a custom fit gown just for you.

Combining details from several different gowns into your dream dress is one of my specialties. Also I have many years' experience sewing for the full figured woman and know how to achieve a perfectly fitted bodice, which I will make up in cotton and send to your for a fitting before starting on your actual dress. By assuring that the cotton mockup fits, this practically eliminates the need for alterations later on the finished gown.

For custom gowns, I create custom listings so that a payment schedule can be arranged. Fabric samples will be sent so you can see and feel what will be used to make your gown (unlike most of the low price Chinese gowns out there). Once you approve the materials and we are sure the bodice mockup fits correctly, I will quote the final price of your gown.

Payment
Credit cards, and PayPal are accepted through Etsy's Direct Checkout. Check and money orders may be mailed directly to me. Georgia state sales tax will be collected on all sales originating from that state. Buyer may cancel order any time in the first three days.
Shipping
Shipment in the US is by Priority Mail or UPS depending on size of item. Insurance will be provided for all shipments over $200. International shipments are made via international Priority Mail, which takes 10 - 15 business days so please consider delivery time when placing orders.
Refunds and Exchanges
Generally, clothing items are cut and made to the measurements supplied by the buyer. If there are any questions on how to take the measurements, please contact me. If a measurement seems out of the 'normal' range, I will ask for a recheck before making your garment. No refunds will be given on clothing. Exchanges will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Restocking fees for 'one-size' items like veils and ties are 50% of the purchase price, excluding shipping costs which are NOT refundable.

Because each item is hand cut and sewn one at a time, please do not expect multiple items to be exact duplicates, especially when made from different fabrics.
Additional policies and FAQs
I also create custom Christening Gowns, made from new fabrics or the Mother's, Grandmother's or even Great-Grandmother's wedding gown, or a combination of all three!
