CUSTOM FIGURE SKATEWEAR®
To have a custom dress made it is advised that you contact Figure Skatewear®either by email or phone to check the current schedule. There are times during the year when there can be a long lead time and there are other times when I have openings right away. If you know you will need a dress in the near future it is best to get on the schedule as soon as you can.
Once the schedule is decided please proceed with the following steps to process your custom order:Current design fee for US dresses is $250 in US dollars.
All payments for the design fee and the custom dress must be made by credit card only! Checks, money orders and Paypal are not accepted for this agreement.
International design fee is $350 in US dollars. International orders can only be paid for via PayPal.
Once the design fee is paid we will discuss the style, color, and overall feel of the costume. At this point I will also need the music, if possible a photo of the skater and a DVD or YouTube link of the current level of performance.The design phase - Measurements can be done over the phone with my help, or a design appointment can be scheduled. If a design appointment is scheduled, I design the dress, show fabric swatches, and take measurements all in the same day. Please allow a window of time up to 3 hours for this type of appointment. Note: The design fee must be paid before a design appointment can be scheduled.
If we are working through the mail with the design process, I will send out swatches and custom color dye samples if necessary. these are sent after the design is approved for pricing.
After the preliminary designs are completed I will email them to you for review.Once the design is finalized, an estimate is prepared and sent to you for your approval. If the estimate is approved, a deposit equal to 80% of the total price is required before materials are ordered and production of the dress can begin.
If a fitting appointment is scheduled, this is a one-time appointment. My method of fitting dresses works very well and will be accomplished in one appointment. Please allow up to 4 hours for your fitting appointment however, many fittings can be accomplished in as little as 1.5 hours.Once the dress is approved for fit, beading and detailing will be done. 3 - 5 days before the dress is completed, a final charge will be run. (Note: exact stone charges and labor are sometimes hard to estimate on dresses and the final price may be slightly higher than the original estimate.) Final payment will be required before the dress is shipped to you. We make every effort to meet each clients deadline, but it is a team effort. Failure on your end to provide answers to questions, return the dress in a timley manor or even damage the try on dress, can slow down the process.
All dresses are shipped FedEx and any dresses shipped back to me for either fitting or repair must also be shipped FedEx.
Any dress that is special ordered is not exchangeable or returnable.
Please make sure of your size, color and choice of dress style prior to making a purchase from Figure Skatewear®.
