It can be a Cinderella gown, a riding jacket, the ultimate coat of many colors or the most efficient pair of pants!
We offer a complete experience from consultations to sketches. Together we will create a color story and discourse on fabric selection. There will also be a muslin fitting prior to the final fitting in the fabric/fabrics selected.
START BY MAKING AN APPOINTMENT WITH US FOR YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION:
Call 1-212-244-8635 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our store and workroom is located in Manhattan at 12 West 29th Street, between Fifth Avenue and Broadway, New York, NY 10001.
For the first consultation, come in with your ideas, inspirations, color and fabric preferences, as well as your budget and timeline. We will listen to you and ask questions.
We will then create sketches with a color story and fabric swatches to present to you at the second meeting. At the end of this session we will discuss the entire process, provide you with an estimated cost and time frame for you to mull over and make your final decision.
When you are ready to proceed with your custom order, we will set up a third consultation, where we confirm the color, fabric, timeline, and final price of the order. With everything settled, we will then measure you for the pattern and muslin.
This is followed by the muslin fitting, where necessary adjustments are made before the actual fabric is cut and sewn.
Lastly, at the actual fabric fitting, final adjustments are made before the garment is finished and ready for your pickup.
