TURNAROUND TIMES: My peak season is between March – October and late November – New Years. For alterations on non-formal and casual garments, my typical turnaround time is 2-3 weeks during the off-peak, and 3-4 weeks during the peak season.
For bridal gowns, my typical turnaround time is 3 – 6 weeks during the off-peak, and 6-8 weeks during the peak season.
For alterations on special occasion garments (bridesmaid/formal dresses), the typical turnaround time is 2-4 weeks during the off-peak, and 4-6 weeks during the peak season.
During the peak season, I book appointments very quickly, so from the moment you submit your estimate request, you can expect to schedule your consultation within 7-10 business days.
Rush fee of $25 will apply for non-formal/casual garments requested to be delivered under 10 business days; $45 for special occasion garments under 15 business days; and $85 for bridal gowns under 20 business days.
My business days are Tuesday thru Saturday (5 days). Consultations and first fittings are always scheduled on my first available Friday or Saturday.
WHEN TO SCHEDULE: You can schedule your appointments as far in advance as you wish. If you are planning to gain/loose/shape up, and think you will change in size, please book an appointment as close to your event as typical turnaround times will allow.
Please keep in mind that between April and September I am booked 2-3 weeks in advance, so please contact me early!
WHAT TO BRING: Once the appointment is scheduled, you should receive a confirmation and a reminder closer to the date of your appointment. For all of your appointments, please bring your shoes (or same size heel – very important for marking the hem properly), and any shape-wear/undergarments you are planning to wear with your gown.
