How long in advance should I place my order for my Wedding - Prom - Renaissance Faire - Special Event?

Can you help me choose my size?
  • Please send us an e-mail with your full bust, waist and full hip measurements to help us recommend the size you should order.  
Do you offer Custom  Sizes?
  • We are not currently offering custom size clothing. 
Do you offer Rush Service?
  • Rush Service is not available at this time. 
Can I send my own fabric?
  • We prefer to use the fabrics we have in-stock, as all of our fabrics are selected to be optimal for the designs being offered. 
  • Bodices, Corsets and Renaissance Skirts are best made in medium to heavy weight drapery or upholstery fabrics.
  • BDYWear is designed to be made in 4-way stretch fabrics.  
  • Please contact us so that we can let you know how much fabric your order requires, and where to send it.  
Can my clothing be altered once it is made?
  • We do not offer alterations on any of our clothing. 
  • We encourage you to take accurate measurements so that your clothing fits correctly.
  • Bodices and Corsets cannot be altered once they are completed, as they are finished with top stitching, binding, and grommets. Taking these items apart would be more work than making a completely new item.
Do you accept returns? 
  • All clothing sales are final. Returns are not accepted on made-to-order clothing, as it is being made at your request. 
What if my Custom Size clothing does not fit once I receive it?
  • If there is something terribly wrong with your Custom Size order once you receive it, we are happy to do whatever we can to correct any issues that are our fault.  
  • If you did not measure correctly and your Custom Size clothing does not fit properly, we cannot accept returns on these orders.  
  • Alterations may be able to be done in extreme cases, but they are time consuming and very costly
I have an idea for something I would like made.  Can you make this for me?
  • At this time we are not accepting custom commissions.
