Made To Measure
Bespoke Occasion Outfits, Mother of the Bride Outfits & Made to Measure Women's Business Suits
Special Orders, Made to Measure and Demi Couture.
Our collection is made in sizes 8-16. For customers who are a standard size 6 or 18 (which we do not stock) or where sizes have sold out, we are happy to make your size with no surcharge, if fabric is available, be it for a Mother of the Bride outfit or any occasion. Please note however that any alterations required once items have been made will be charged as per stock in the shop.
We are also happy to make Special Orders in standard sizes (6 - 18) for any of our styles that are not offered in the fabric or colour that you would like. This way you are able to have a unique outfit. For Special Orders, surcharges are applied to cover the increased manufacturing charges for making a one off item plus additional carriage costs. As Special Orders are made to a standard size, alterations costs may be charged once the items are made, should the items require any amendments.
Special Order surcharges are as follows:
Coat - £250
Jacket - £200
Dress - £200
Skirt or Trousers - £150
Bespoke, Made to Measure (MTM) and Demi-Couture are also available where patterns are created especially for you, using our existing styles as a starting point. For Made to Measure, surcharges apply which are to cover: the cost of creating a special pattern and making a toile, the increased costs charged by the manufacturer for making a one off item, sourcing of special trims/fabrics if necessary, extra visits to the manufacturer to ensure everything is correct and carriage costs for the patterns and fabric to the manufacturer and the finished garments to us.
Made to Measure surcharges are as follows:
Coat - £900
Jacket - £800
Dress - £700
Trousers - £450
Skirt - £350
(Any alterations to the final garments are included in this surcharge.)

Delivery for Special Orders is generally 4-6 weeks from receipt of order but this may be longer at certain times of year. Please also allow time for minor alterations once the garment is made (this generally takes about a week).
Delivery for Made to Measure is generally 8-10 weeks from receipt of order and will require an initial appointment for measurements to be taken, followed by two further appointments.
CHARGES AND DEPOSITS
We ask for any surcharges plus 50% of the cost of the items at the time of placing orders (this amounts to approximately 75% of the total cost). The balance may be paid once any alterations have been made and the outfit is finished.
Unfortunately we are unable to create totally new styles and offer only styles from within our current or previous collections, possibly with minor alterations. We are also not able to make up a customer’s own fabric but we often source special fabrics at customers' requests.
