Frequently Asked Questions

When should I make my first appointment?

     Bridal Gown Appointments:  Please call to schedule an appointment at least 4-6 months before
     your wedding date, when possible.

     All Other Services:  There is generally a two week turnaround time for most alteration and/or
     tailoring services.  Please call to schedule your appointment.

     In either case, I will do my best to schedule a time that works for both of us.

What do I need to bring to my fitting?

     Gown and/or Garment
     Undergarments (i.e. bra and slip)
     Garment Bag (optional, but advised)

How long will my fitting take?

     Bridal Attire ~ 1 hour
     Bridesmaid Gown ~ 1/2 hour
     Special Occasion Attire ~ 1/2 hour
     Business & Casual Attire ~  15 min per item

 When do I pay for my alteration/tailoring services?

     It is customary to pay in full at the time of your first fitting.  The method of payment is
     by cash, debit or credit card. Most major credit cards are accepted.

How will I know when my clothing is ready to be picked up?

     I will schedule your pickup appointment at your first fitting.  Typical turnaround time is two weeks, depending on openings. Remember to schedule your appointment ahead of time to assure you're spot.  

How much should I expect the cost to be?

     That is a very good question! The only answer I can give is this:  everything is based by the amount of time it takes to work on any given item.  If you have a garment that has simple lines and no embellishments, the cost will be lower than if you have lace and beading.  At the first fitting you should know what your total bill will be, barring body measurement changes or design changes. 

Can you do custom work, or change a design?

Custom orders and changing design will need further consulting.  Please contact me with any questions you may have.
Will you help me pick out my fabric, or wedding gown?

I would love to help you.  I will be honest and forthright in helping you choose~but you are the one who has the final say :)    (this service does have a consultation fee)
