May I order one of the costumes I see in your Custom Dance Gallery?
All of the costumes you see on this website were custom orders and are not for sale. They are just to give an idea of what I can do for you. If you see something that you really like, we can discuss doing a similar costume but personalizing the design so that it's unique for you.
How do you ensure a proper fit?
Once we've established the design (style, fabric, color, theme). I will e-mail a detailed measurement list for you to complete and return.
How do I pay?
I require a deposit of 50% to place your order. When you are ready to order I will send you an invoice for the deposit. Paying a deposit will assure that you are on my schedule and will receive your costume by the date that you have requested. It may be paid with any major credit card or e-check through Paypal. The balance is due upon completion of the costume.
Because all of my items are unique and custom made, I do not have a general price list. Most of my designs run between $700.00 - $900.00 Prices vary based on the intricacy of the design, size and amount of stoning. I will quote a firm price once we've discussed design details.
How long does it take to complete a custom costume?
I am typically booked out at least 4-6 weeks. When dance competition starts in the fall I can get booked up 12 weeks. It's best to place your order (which requires a deposit) as soon as you know your competition/pageant date. Rush orders, when available, may result in an additional charge.
What sizes do you offer?
Custom dance costumes: 4T - girls 13/14
Juniors 00 - 5/6
Can you send me fabric samples?
Once we've discussed design ideas; if requested, I will e-mail you photos of various fabrics to choose from for your costume.
What is your return policy?
Deposits on custom orders are non-refundable. Custom items are non-refundable/non-returnable.
If a custom costume does not fit based on the measurements you've submitted, if my schedule permits, I will make the necessary changes for a fee that will be based on the level of alternations needed. Shipping charges will apply. If I am booked you may need to find a seamstress in your area who can make alterations.
If a fit problem occurs due to an error on my part, alterations and shipments will be made at no cost to you. Fit issues are very rare.
