The process
  • Step 1: The free consultation

    1. The FREE consultation

    This can be done in person or over the phone. Ailsa spends this time getting to know your style and tastes. From this meeting Ailsa will get an idea of your requirements and thoughts on your outfit and can help advise on what will work for you. It does not matter if you have no ideas about what you want, or for that matter if you know exactly what you want it to look like, Ailsa will take all of the information from this consultation and provide you with a variety of designs and sketches, providing different options for you.
  • Step 2: Choose your fabrics

    2. Choose your fabric

    Once a final design has been settled upon, we must decide upon colour and material. Ailsa will provide you with samples to choose from, the cost of the fabric will be the big factor in setting the cost of the quote. Once a fabric is chosen, Ailsa will offer you a quote and you can decide from there whether you want to go ahead, if its not for you or if we need to tailor the quote to suit your budget.

    There is no obligation at this stage, should you decide that a custom made outfit is not for you, you can walk away with no charge. That is the whole point of this consultation stage, to explain to you how the process works and to see if it suits you.
  • Step 3: Making the dress

    3. Creating your dress

    If you are happy, Ailsa will set about making a pattern and toile, using the toile in the first of three fittings, Ailsa will make the item to fit your body shape. At this stage, you can still change the design - alot of the time you cant tell how a design will look until you see it on. This is the luxury of custom made outfits, you can develop the design during the process.

    The final stage is making the item in the chosen material, having another fitting along the way and then one more when finished to view the finished article.
