Frequently Asked Questions

What is the time frame for alterations?

Depending on the extent of the alterations needed, I generally need a minimum of 6 weeks from your wedding date. For more extensive alterations, I need a minimum of 8 weeks from your wedding date.

How many alterations appointments are included in the bespoke process?

I work on a three fitting basis;

1 - the initial bust and shoulder fit

2 - the hem and any small adjustments to be made since the first fitting

3 – the final fitting with your shoes and underwear 

When is payment due for alterations?

Payment in full is required before your final fitting. Cash and/or direct deposit payments are accepted. 

How much time do you need for a bespoke bridal gown? 

A bespoke wedding dress necessitates a minimum timeline of 3-5 months for completion. The timeframe for your bespoke design will be based on complexity factors such as fabric selection, appliqué, beading, and design intricacies. In the event of significant modifications to the initial design, a reevaluation of the design quote may occur. It is important to note that any hours expended in the initial stages become obligatory for payment in the event of a requote for the design.
