Everything was perfect! This tunic is so light and beautiful and the owner of the shop is quiet professional and so reliable. Many thanks!
Making for the sake of making.
I love making things with my hands, and I enjoy the idea that some one out there will enjoy what I made.
I like the feeling of accomplishment that follows the completion of an entirely new, unique project, the creation of something from scratch, that will live it's own life, will be lived in, will be appreciated.
What I like about making clothes is that it's a fast process, there is an immediate gratification as I witness my creation rapidly grow under my fingers, following a direction that is a blend of my own ideas and what the garment it's self seems to have in mind.
I am a one-woman company, curating each fase of my work, and want to stay this way, growing and deepening my artistic capacities and understanding of the human body and it's beauty.
My name is Lucia Squillari, I'm 29 years old. I work and live in a little town in the north of Italy, Peveragno, where I have my atelier and showroom
I have been sewing full time since 2007 and have made thousands of garments over these rapidly rushing years! I mostly sell here on Etsy but I also enjoy selling in person at festivals and craft fairs in the area, together with my friend Stefania of LoreTree.etsy.com

Frequently asked questions
Where are you located?
I work and live in the beautiful and sunny Italy. Here I have my studio, but Larimeloom was born online and the vast majority of my customers are spread all over the world.
How do you manage custom tailored garments from afar?
I design with this purpose in mind, strategically balancing my designs to ensure a stress free, painless experience, and a flattering comfortable fit.
And so with accurate measurements and few photos of the person I am able to create a well fitting garment, made specifically for you.
Instead of fitting you inside a pre-conceived size, I fit the dress around you!So much better.
A standard size (which is what the fashion industry revolves around) is just a set of measurements in to which we are made to fit. By swapping those with your ACTUAL measurements, the result is much more accurate, flattering and comfortable.
How does sizing work?
Wedding dresses, unless they are one of a kind or samples, are all made to measure.This means I cannot make the dress until I have your accurate measurements and photos of you. I will email you a list of measurements I need to make your dress.
For ready to wear, I can work with generic sizes but if you prefer a custom fit, you can simply provide the measurements needed, and I will cut it proportioned for you.
If you can’t send me the measurements for whatever reason, choose the size closest to your body, and include a picture of yourself. Pictures help me proportion things well and are very useful!
If you cannot or do not wish to send me measurements, here is my standard size chart.
Extra Small (XS)
Bust 30-32” / 78-82 cm
Waist 25-26” / 63-67 cm
Hips 33-34” / 84-87 cm

Hips 38-40” / 95-100 cm
Bust 39-42” / 99-106 cm

Hips 45-47” / 114-119 cm
It is only valid for ready to wear as I will need your measurements for custom making a wedding dress.
How far from my wedding should I order my dress and how long will it take?
For a custom made wedding dress it is ideal to order about 3-4 months before the wedding.
I can work with less time, up to a minimum of 4 weeks.
Rush orders are available but fees may be involved, so do inquire before hand.
To optimise my time, I organise my work around the wedding dates, not the dates of order.
I will need to know the exact date of your wedding and will deliver your dress with about 4 weeks advance minimum, often more. If you feel more comfortable with more time, just let me know and I will work my schedule around that.
I usually also have a selection of sample or one of a kind dresses in a few sizes that can be shipped out immediately provided that they fit you.
And how long does it take for ready to wear?
All custom ready to wear garments will typically be made and shipped within 10 workdays. Everything ships expedite so you would typically receive your garment within 10 workdays from date of order.
Do inquire about rush order options.
Can I customise or alter any of your designs?
Yes! I love custom work and love to mix and match elements of my designs, so ask away!
I do not do copies of other people’s designs, but feel free to send me reference images as inspiration as well. There is no fee involved, the price will be calculated as for all my designs, based on material and complexity and time involved in the making of it.
Can you help me with alterations?
Sometimes it is best to have certain things done locally (perfecting the length of a dress, shortening a strap, etc), but I am always available for advice and am willing to do alterations on your Larimeloom garment, usually free of charge, provided you pay for shipping back and forth. The best thing is to get in touch so we can discuss the issue.
