Fabric Samples

***Because computer monitors display colors differently, colors on your screen may not match the color of the fabric. Ordering fabric samples is highly recommended if color matching is needed.***

This is a deposit on the samples. If the samples are returned, you will receive a refund (see refund details below).

ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS
♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦

* 1. When checking out, list the fabric samples from the images above, include the COLOR NAME and FULL CODE (i.e. Navy RF M) for each color.
***WW fabric samples are currently NOT available. Sorry for the inconvenience!***

For help narrowing down the color selection, send me a image of something in the color(s) you like.

* 2. If it is for a bridesmaid dress, please also include the following:
A. Bride's name: ___
B. Wedding date: ___
C. Number of bridesmaids: ___


FYI: Because I must work with the sample sizes provided by my suppliers, sample sizes are quite small. If ordering dresses, I can provide you with a FREE large swatch of your color once your fabric has arrived (upon request only). Please note, I do no order your fabric until I have received measurements & payments for all dresses in the order.

FABRIC
♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦
After experimentation, I have found that a nylon/spandex blend is the best. The fabric I use has plenty of stretch for comfort and drapes beautifully. It is very low maintenance, machine washable (in a mesh garment bag), and dries quickly. It comes in both matte and shiny finish.

Cotton Jersey and Rayon Jersey are available by request only (I do not keep samples in stock, so please allow extra time). I do not generally use this fabric because it doesn't tend to lay as nice, holds wrinkles more, and can look "cheap".


MATTE vs SHINY
♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦
Shiny tends to look more formal, whereas the matte is more versatile because it can be dressed up or down to fit any occasion, and is therefore, easier for you or your bridesmaids to wear the dress again and again without needing a formal event. To dress an outfit up or down, focus on the wrapping style, shoes, jewelry, make-up & hair.

PLEASE NOTE
♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦
Under normal circumstances, I need 4-6 weeks for standard fabric colors (6-10 weeks for non-standard colors) to hand cut and sew the dress(es), and ship it out to you. This does not include actual shipping time. Please place your orders early so that you have plenty of time to receive and try the dress prior to your event. Rush orders may be available for an added fee. Please contact me to check!

These dresses are made to order and any non-standard fabric is bought on a per order basis. Occasionally, some colors may be out of stock or discontinued with my suppliers, therefore I cannot guarantee availability of any fabrics when you place your dress order. Please let me know your color selection as soon as possible so I can check the availability. If the color you have selected is out of stock at the time of ordering I will notify you as soon as I can.

Due to differences in manufacturer dye lots, your dress color may vary slightly from the swatch provided.

Light colors may be slightly see-through, just like most lighter colored fabrics. Wearing skin toned undergarments or breast petals is helpful. You may also consider ordering a matching bandeau or choose to wrap the dress so the straps cover the bust multiple times to minimize the sheerness. A lining is also available.
