Custom Garment Design Layout & Submission Form
A $50 non-refundable payment is required to begin the process for process for the first look. Any additional looks with this order will be an additional $20 per look. This payment is credited to the cost of your design. If you decide not to continue with ordering, this cost goes toward the work (sketching, fabric sourcing etc.) that has already been completed. The payment also acts as a temporary placeholder on my sewing schedule. When your design is finalized and your order is placed, it then becomes a booking on my schedule.
Once your deposit invoice is paid, I will begin sketching. To do so, I will need any design details and/or inspiration you have in mind for your design to include colors as well. As a designer, I DO NOT replicate anyone else’s work. Any images sent solely acts as inspiration to the designs I will be sketching. I only create designs that I have sketched. I will not be creating any sketches sent me by another designer. They will also only act as inspiration to the design I will be creating. You will get a maximum of 2 sketch revisions. Any additional revisions are subject to an additional cost to compensate for my time.
The budget helps when sourcing fabrics and embellishments, to be sure that the final selections are within your price points. If you are concerned about pricing, you can ask for a quote.
- After the approval of your design, you will be provided with the cost to create your design along with shipping charges. Taxes are applied to any order being picked up, or shipped to Florida and Texas. The cost of your design will include all fabrics and materials needed for your creation.
- When I receive the approval for the design and cost, I will send you the contract. The contract includes my terms and conditions, the design sketch, and the price for that sketch. Upon signing the contract, an invoice will be emailed to you for the payment for your design. Payment is required in order to begin working on your design. After your payment is received, I will send you a diagram of the measurements needed to create your design. Measurements will need to be done in inches. Half Payment to begin your order is an available option on orders that are $200 or more.

I can make any adjustments needed to the fit as long as time allows. If any adjustments to the fit are needed, I can send you a ground or priority shipping label at no cost. You will pin the garment and take photos, then return the garment. I will make the necessary adjustments and return the garment. If the time frame does not allow me to do the adjustments, you will be responsible for any adjustments or alterations needed at your cost.
