Custom Orders

**I am currently booked up until Nov 2013 with my projects, commissions and other things.**

 

 I design and create high quality apparel for everyday wear or special occasion finery. Please read below for listed options.

 

There are two request options: 

One-

I have set prices for some dresses/outfits as the pattern and design does not change, only the colour and/or sizing.  

1)Picking from a pre-designed creation. Communicating colour request and or print of choice.

2) Basic Measurements. A basic set of measurements such as height, weight, chest, waist, and hips. I will of course require more details at a later date

 

 

3) Approximate Due Date. 

4) Payment is required in full for pre-designed ensembles

Two-

 A full ensemble may require between 20 to 100 hours to complete depending on the complexities of request. Currently, my hourly rate is $20. This figure includes such activities as shopping, fitting appointments, pattern making, layout and cutting, sewing, hand finishing, as well as other assorted skills like pleather craft, corsetry, millinery, wig dressing, jewelry design, and embellishing, such as painting, beading or embroidery.

The first step in getting a custom creation for your very own is requesting an estimate. To request an estimate, I need the following information.

1) Source Material. Whatever the source, I work best if I have views of the costume from several angles, front, back, side, and closeups of important details. Drawings, URL links and such work best. Photographs of other people's costumes are not particularly helpful.


2) Basic Measurements. A basic set of measurements such as height, weight, chest, waist, and hips. I will of course require more details at a later date.


3) Approximate Due Date. 

 

4) Payment of 50% is required before I can start. The remaining amount before shipment.

 
***Please take note: I work in downtown Seattle, WA. With local clients, I prefer to have fittings, but sometimes this is not a possibility.  If by chance you are an out-of-Seattle. Out-of-Seattle clients accepts full responsibility for providing an accurate measurement set.
