I ordered this dress for my elopement. Sara made the dress to my measurements for no additional charge, since I was worried it would be a bit too loose. It turned out perfectly! Sara also suggested that she sew in a cream-coloured ribbon (since it was bridal) that I could later remove. She had also sewn black ribbon underneath. Such a thoughtful idea and it looked great! Thank you Sara :)

Sara was incredible. She customized this piece per my numerous requests, it got to me in time for the event I wore it to, and it was a HIT! It fit wonderfully and will be something I treasure forever more. I will definitely be shopping here again!

About

Hand made in Italy

Ciao! Mi chiamo Sara, ho 33 anni e lavoro come stilista nel distretto di Firenze/Prato.

Quando avevo 19 anni, ho lasciato la Puglia per andare a studiare Fashion design a Firenze, dove mi sono laureata nel 2006. Per 7 anni ho lavorato come stilista presso varie aziende del settore dell'abbigliamento nel distretto di Prato e allo stesso tempo ho continuato a studiare duramente per imparare i segreti dello stile e le tecniche sartoriali.
Durante tutti questi anni ho imparato moltissimo sui metodi di produzione industriali, i tessuti, le tecniche di stampa. Ma le ho sempre usate per altri. Ho imparato molto anche del mondo della moda, e ho capito che non mi piace la moda veloce - il cosiddetto pronto moda - per i suoi ritmi frenetici, le sue regole, la fretta con cui getta sul mercato una grande quantità di prodotti di bassa qualità.

Nell'agosto 2014, durante le mie vacanze estive in Puglia, ho deciso di creare con le mie mani un capo che potesse essere un pezzo unico, speciale, realizzato con metodi sartoriali, rifiniture finissime, tessuti italiani di alta qualità e soprattutto la lentezza che serve quando si curano con attenzione i dettagli. Così è nato il cappottino "Bisanzio", un soprabito sfoderato elegante caratterizzato da tagli semplici e tessuto dalla fantasia particolarissima.
Quello è stato il primo pezzo della prima collezione Sara Gambarelli Handmade in Italy, che ho scelto di vendere sul web direttamente alle mie clienti per abbattere i costi e permettere a tutte di vestire dei capi di alta qualità fatti a mano e di personalizzare i loro acquisti.

In definitiva, amo lo stile, la moda, ma soprattutto amo il lavoro sartoriale. Mi piace trasformare un semplice pezzo di stoffa in qualcosa di speciale.
Ogni capo presente nello shop è fatto totalmente con le mie mani, dall'idea fino alla realizzazione esecutiva. Per voi!

Write me a message on Etsy, specifying in the object: RETURN REQUEST and the order code number (released at the moment of purchase) and arguing why you would return the goods and get a refund, better if the request is accompanied by photographic material.

Shipping
Sara Gambarelli Handmade in Italy ships worldwide.

SHIPPING TIME
Most of items are made to order, so the production time can vary.
Shipments are normally processed on time estimated in the table you can find in the description of each product, unless otherwise agreed with the buyer.
During periods of increasing demand (as december, for exemple), these times can be longer, so be sure to order the goods in advance so that I can make a good work.

SHIPPING COSTS
Shipping costs can change depending to the item and to your location.
Regarding this, please check the shipping cost table in the product page by selecting the destination country.

CUSTOM CHARGES
If you're a buyer from outside EU, at the moment you'll receive the package you could find an extra charge to pay directly to the courier (he'll anticipate the amount for you when the package will pass through the custom).
The amount is determined by the importing Country and they could vary widely depending on the product imported. That's why I can't estimate the custom charge when I sell a product.
Custom charges are responsibility of the buyer.

DELIVERY
All shipments are carried out with Poste Italiane, which itself relies on external couriers. I have no power to decide which courier makes the delivery.
Deliveries are processed according to the times below:
Italy
- 1 working day for orders equal or superior to 20€;
- 5-7 working days for orders of less than 20€
Rest of the world:
- 5-7 working days for orders equal or superior to 60€;
- 15-20 working days for orders of less than 60€.
These times are estimated in normal conditions according to the guarantees of the courier and in my personal experience as seller. I do not assume responsibility for non-delivery or delayed delivery due to the absence of the recipient during the delivery, to failures of the courier and errors of the the customer or any other cause that is not dependent by my direct responsibility.
To be sure of a safe delivery, please indicate a valid garrisoned address.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: For shipments outside Italy the courier requests a phone number. Please include it in the notes at the moment of the order.
