About

I love to play with my clothes and have a say in how they look and feel...how about you??

Consider the Lilies Custom Clothing is the result of encouragement and requests from family and friends to make clothing for them that they admired on me. I learned to sew from Mother and Grandmother, have always loved beautiful fabrics and simple, elegant lines in clothing. Eight years ago, I began sewing with the new knit fabrics that were flooding the market and loved the results. Over the ensuing years, I have made hundreds of pieces for hundreds of women. Many of my clients were unable to walk into a store and find clothing that fit and flattered them due to unique figure needs. A number of these gals who absolutely hated going shopping because of the frustration discovered through working with me that they loved having clothing that was designed and fit just for them -- and they discovered a previously unknown creativity when allowed to choose colors, prints, design features, and styles. Who knew????? One of my first clients announced the first day I worked with her that she would never wear anything but black, would not ever consider a skirt, and hated having to think about clothing. After working together for 2 years, she bought a pair of red shoes, was wearing all kinds of colors, and even bought and wore a skirt!!! Clothing can and should be fun, and it should be an expression of who you are. Another client brought me a pair of chartreuse boots she had bought because she absolutely loved them . . . but she had nothing to wear with them. I found a great graphic print with that exact color and made her a reversible hoodie that she was thrilled with! It looked great with her sassy little boots!!! My favorite part of my business is of course the sewing and putting fabric and design together -- but I also love helping women solve problems so they can look and feel their best!

    I absolutely love sewing beautiful, elegant, simple, affordable clothing in knits for women who want to look great, feel great. My clients can choose from items I have created . . . or they can express themselves and participate in the design process with me. Custom clothing allows you to express yourself in a unique and wonderful way. I am very familiar with all the new knit fabrics, as well as the original "travel" fabrics introduced several years ago. I am constantly searching for unique and beautiful fabrics from both New York and California. If this describes you, you should definitely Consider the Lilies!!!

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Ready-to-ship items may be returned for a refund of the item price within 10 days of delivery. The customer is responsible for shipment costs both ways. The item must be returned unworn and in original condition. Please contact me for return shipment address. Replacement items will be sent or a refund will be issued only after I receive the items to be replaced or refunded.

Custom items may be returned, depending upon the degree of customization. For example, pants with a 38" inseam cannot be returned -- tough to resell:) Convo me and we will "have a little chat" (to quote Heidi Klum!)
Payment
Consider the Lilies accepts Credit Card payment or Paypal.
Shipping
All ready-made items (as designated in individual listings) will ship within 48 hours unless otherwise notified. Please allow 10 days to 2 weeks for custom orders, unless otherwise notified by e-mail.

All items are shipped either USPS flat rate priority mail or UPS ground with tracking information. I will use flat rate shipping to be certain clothing is protected during shipping and arrives in a timely manner and in perfect condition.

To keep costs down with international shipping, I will use First Class International Mail for Canada and International customers. This usually takes less than 2 weeks, but can take over a month. The upside is the price. Contact me if you prefer another option and are willing to pay for it. Unfortunately First Class does not include tracking or insurance. I am not able to mark international orders as "Gift".

International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside the U.S. may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.

Tips for taking your measurements:
Bust: Circle at center of nipples around back
Waist: Circle at the smallest point of the waist
Hips: Circle with tape against the fullest point of hips and bum
Upper Hips: Circle with tape against the upper hip, 1 inch below navel
Upper Arm circumference: Circle tape around fullest part of biceps
Sleeve length: Measure from edge of shoulder to desired sleeve length
Inseam length: Measure from crotch to ankle or desired pant length. I tend to want to error longer rather than shorter
Jacket or top length: Measure from shoulder to desired length at waist or hips.

I am not responsible for incorrect measurements. If in doubt, do not hesitate to contact me. I am here to help you customize your clothing, and I have had experiences with many different figures and can usually work pretty well from a good set of measurements. Do not hesitate to contact me with questions about specific lengths, measurements of ready-made items.

All Lilies clothing goes in the washer and dryer - warm/cool setting. All fabric has been washed and dried before I work on it so I can ensure no shrinkage or bleeding.
