How to commission a bespoke garment
Caroline Bruce also offers a bespoke designer dressmaking service. Imagine being able to have any dress made and designed to your own style, fabric, colour and fit, for that special occasion.
Our bespoke designer dress service aims to give you something totally unique... just for you. With over 30 years experience in fashion and clothing, Caroline has aquired numerous skills to be able to provide this unique service.
You may have a dress design idea in mind or would like a dress designed for you, but whichever it is we can provide you a luxury bespoke dressmaking service. This service gives you the opportunity to have a totally unique dress or garment made of your choice that no one else will have!
Fitting is an important part of this service and the phrase 'bespoke clothing' refers not only to a unique hand crafted garment, but also to having a garment made to measure to fit you.
To have a bespoke garment made you first need to book an initial face to face consultation which is free. This usually takes about an hour so please allow enough time. To book please phone 07835 983018 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Following the agreement of terms and once a design has been approved, a set of measurements will be taken from you at an agreed time in respect of any weight loss plan, pregnancy, illness/recovery factor. It is important that this is made known at point of order. Information agreed at the time of quotation is the sole basis for cost. This quotation is subject to change if there are any omissions or additions to the original design.
Caroline sees clients by appointment only, however an estimate can be provided via email using the contact form below, although this cannot be used as an accurate quote. A toile will be made, which is a mock up of your design in a calico or sub fabric which will be adjusted to fit your measurements prior to the actual fabric being cut. You must bring the underwear and shoes you intend to wear with the completed garments to all fitting appointments. The fitting cannot take place otherwise and you will be charged a fee.
Most appointments take less than an hour but this depends on how many garments and persons being fitted. At least one fitting may be required before the final fit and style are agreed, then a final fitting will be required and any minor fittings adjustments will be made.
Please telephone 24 hours in advance if you need to rearrange a fitting or consultation.
A deposit is required before any work commences. Cancellation of an order following payment of deposits will result in loss of deposits. For full terms and conditions please request a bespoke form.
For all enquiries, including anything else you would like to be commissioned, please contact Caroline using the contact form below.
