I'm very excited to share my designs with you! I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

I love the vintage look. Here you will find a lot of Retro Style with a Modern Edge. I am vintage inspired but you will see some modern looks as well. Though I tend to shy from the trendy looks. I've never been a trendy girl! I prefer to create timeless pieces that you will enjoy for decades to come. Being an award winning and published artist I have an eye for detail.

I do not out source my dresses. I personally create each dress from start to finish! My name goes behind every order and that is very important to me! Because I am only one person I am limited in how many I can accomplish so I am offering a small amount of custom orders. It is best to order early so I can add you to my schedule.
Returns and exchanges
I want you to be completely happy with your purchase, the fit, the feel and how you look in it. So if you are not happy with your item please contact me within 48 hours of delivery.

A refund will be issued minus 35% of the list price to cover material costs. Refunds do not include shipping. Buyer is responsible for the costs of shipping the item back to me.

Made to size orders are hard to resale. Most sellers do not offer any refunds for made to size orders. I am trying to be as fair as possible.

Refunds are not honored after an event. You must notify me prior to the date of your event. The postmark of the return merchandise must be prior to the date of the event.

I accept refunds of in stock dresses minus shipping costs. Buyer is responsible for costs to ship the item back to me.

After you contact me I will send you the return address. A refund will be issued after the item is receive in the condition that it was shipped.
I accept Pay Pal, personal checks (will delay shipping), and money orders. Payments are due within 48 hours of purchase. If item is not purchased or I am not contacted within 7 days the sale will be cancelled.

Depending on my work load custom orders can take 1-8 weeks. If you need an item expedited please convo me in advance to make sure that I can meet the deadline.

If you want a listing reserved for you I ask that you pay for the reserved item within 2 weeks. This also applies to custom orders. I do offer payment installments see below.

Payment installments:

With this tough economical time I will accept payment installments. I prefer 50% down and remainder upon completions. If you need other terms feel free to convo me and we can work something out.

If you decide to cancel a sale and I have already purchased the fabric you are responsible for the costs of any materials I purchased. If I can I will return the material but most places charge a restocking fee plus do not refund shipping costs for the shipped item or the return of the item.

Please do not order unless you intend to purchase!
If you need your item expedited please contact me in advance and I will provide you with the additional shipping charges. I cannot guarantee shipping! After I ship the item it is out of my control. If you live in a rural area overnight shipping may not be available with USPS. It may or may not be with UPS or FedEx.

I use Pay Pal to ship your orders. Please make sure the correct shipping address is on your Pay Pal account!
Additional policies and FAQs
I'm very happy to do custom orders. If you are in need of a special item or if you have a color preference let me know.

Ordering a custom dress online can be a scary process for you and for me. I own three dress forms to accommodate all sizes. Dress forms are designed to provide the closest measurements and re-create the model without having them present. I dial in the measurements that my clients provide, but just like if you were to purchase a dress at a boutique there maybe times that small alterations need to be done. A dress form does not replace a body, but it is the closest thing I can use to recreate your body.

I will send you a picture with instructions on how to measure yourself. It is very important that the measurements are accurate.

Upper Bust: Under your armpits above your natural bust. Very important for strapless
Bust: The bust is the fullest part of your breasts
Waist: Your natural waist line usually above the belly button.
Hip: Widest part, hold the measuring tape around your hip and pull it down to find the widest part.
Torso: From shoulder to natural right below belly button this is how I determine how long your bodice will be.
Inseam: From natural waist to where you want the hem to end.

If you are ordering a top or dress with sleeves I will need your arm circumference. Where to measure would depend on the sleeve.

If possible have someone help you or have your measurements taken professionally.

Please if you have any suggestions or questions don't hesitate to contact me. If you would like to talk to me in person please convo me and I will send you my phone number.

If you want to see my work in action please go to my blog. I post some of my custom orders or projects I'm doing for myself.
