Due to the custom nature of our dresses, we have a NO cancellation policy/refund policy. Once your order has been placed (i.e. deposit received and fabric/supplies ordered) there will be no refunds.
DEPOSITS AND PAYMENTS
Deposits are equal to 60% of the total cost of the gown or special occasion garment being produced. Garment production will begin when the FULL deposit has been received. The balance of your custom item is due before your final fitting. There are no exceptions.
There will be a minimum of two (2) fittings. The first will be a muslin (plain fabric), this will be the ONLY chance to modify the garment design within the original quoted price. The second fitting will be in the chosen fabric. Client will sign stating that they are pleased with the progression of their garment at each fitting and when the garment is complete and ready for pick up. Shoes and undergarments (including but not limited to: slip, bra and body shapers) must be decided upon, purchased and brought/worn to all fittings
