About LaVieDelight

On Etsy since 2013

We create high end 20s-inspired clothing just for you

Hello. My name is Thongbai, a self-taught designer and certified dressmaker. I lead our team of 8 people in a pet-and-smoke-free sewing studio in Bangkok, Thailand, specializing in handmade 1920s-inspired clothing. Our goal is to create high quality vintage-inspired garments for 'real world' wardrobes, as well as to help party goers of 1920s-themed parties meet their needs for great party outfits that are not only well made but are also comfortable and body flattering.

What we mean by ‘real world’ wardrobes is that because our clothes are not costumey, and the materials used are quite modern (ie durable), the clothes can therefore be worn in different occasions, or even to work. It is also for a sustainable reason that our clothes are well made with high quality materials. They can be used many times, and not just once to a party and then put away for good. Most importantly, 95% of our clothes are made to order. This means that they are made only when they are truly needed. Customers have a choice to have their clothes customized based on their needs and preferences. We do not contribute to the overproduction of clothes, which is killing our planet at this moment!

We are a small team and take pride in our work, skills, services, and our contribution to help keep the Roaring Twenties alive in the 21st century. We enjoy every step of it from designing, making patterns, selecting materials, cutting, sewing, photographing, selling and packing the products to be shipped to great parties around the world.

It is our great honor to create a dress for our customers for their special 20s-themed event, organized not only to celebrate the present special situations but also to appreciate our past, the value and culture of the Roaring Twenties.

Though there are things that are beyond our ability and capability, we invite you to contact us to discuss your needs and wishes. Let’s work together to achieve our mutual goal, that is to get you an outfit that you will love and enjoy wearing at your next 1920s-themed event.

Sincerely,

Thongbai Tatong, on behalf of La Vie Delight team

Note that we recently started working with Khun Sombat, a local leather expert who, with his wife and two other team members, makes all our leather bags. I design all the bags and source all the materials locally here in Bangkok. My team and I are grateful to Khun Sombat and his team who help make our bags, because we just don't have expertise or the right equipment to work with leather.

* We also have a shop selling bags and clothes:

Additional policies and FAQs
Q: When will I receive my item if I order today?
A: It depends on two things:
1) If you order a regular size, check whether the size you want is IN STOCK or MADE TO ORDER. It is marked clearly in the product Description. If the item is marked IN STOCK it will be shipped within 3 days after the order comes in. And if it is marked MADE TO ORDER we need 7 days to make it. The same amount of time is needed for a custom item.
2) We are located in Thailand and ship to worldwide destinations with DHL Express. It takes about 4-7 days for packages to arrive.

Q: I normally wear size 12, which size of your dress should I order?
A: We have our own sizing, which is not based on international sizing. To see which size to order compare your body measurements with those of each size in our size chart:

https://img1.etsystatic.com/204/0/8181797/il_fullxfull.1360588527_c1px.jpg

If you are not sure which size to choose, send us your body measurements and height. We can help you decide.

Q: Do you make plus size dresses?
A: Yes, we offer plus size up to 48-inch bust (approx 2X or US 20). We don’t charge extra for size customization. Please contact us to discuss sizing.

Q: If I don’t like the item I bought or if it doesn’t fit can I return it?
A: Yes, if the item you bought was in a regular size, you are welcome to send the item back for refund or exchange. Only customized items cannot be returned for refund or exchange. Note that customers are responsible for the postage to ship the orders back to us in Thailand.

Q: If the order arrives too late for my event, can I send it back for refund?
A: Yes, if the item you bought is in a regular size. Send it back for full refund minus shipping fee. Custom item cannot be returned for refund or exchange. Note that customers are responsible for the shipping fee to send the order back to us in Thailand.

Q: I like this style of dress but not the fabric/color. Can you use a different fabric/color to make me this dress?
A: Absolutely yes, if we have the fabric in our studio. Feel free to browse through our shop and select the fabrics or colors that we use for other dresses. We will consider if it is suitable for the style that you choose. If so, we will use it for your dress. If not, we will suggest a different one.

Q: The timing is rather tight. Could you rush my order?
A: Let us know where you live and when your event is. Then we can advise regarding the timing. Most of the time we are able to prioritize rush orders. This is our special service and there are no extra fees.

* * Colors of products may appear differently on your screen * *

Please note that the colors of the products that appear on your screen may be different from the real colors. This is because different computers/cell phones have different color settings. We have two computers and one cell phone in the shop and they all show different colors of the same dress. So please read the product details of the true color of each item. If you are not sure whether it is the color you want, you can ask us to send new pictures of the item or the fabrics. We can also give you a more detailed description of the real color. If you are not in a hurry to use your clothes, order fabric swatches to see and feel the fabrics in real.
