Your shell fitting will be held at our seamstresses studio around 4-6 weeks ahead of the wedding. The outfit will be 80% finished and ready for final tweaks to fit. Our seamstress will have left the hem raw and unfinished so please bring your wedding shoes so we can cut the length correctly. The cost covers the fitting itself and one set of alterations relating to the fit. Please note if you decide you would like to tweak the design extensively during your fitting we will need to agree a bespoke cost for this. 

We will always send you notes from your fitting, please read these through carefully as we will make the changes using this document.

If you decide you would like a second fitting for reassurance purposes, the cost for this is £60. You can of course decide this once you have been for your first fitting. 

Please note we are unable to accomodate “try on” appointments at our studio because if any changes are requested you will need to do a fitting at our seamstresses studio, so if you would like to try your dress again after your shell fitting and before it is finished you will need to book a second fitting.

Important note: if you have ordered a piece that is 'made to order' such as our suits this will have already been finished by the time of your fitting, unless you have told us that you would like it made to measure. We will always be clear with you when you purchase but you can also find more information on the website too if needed (please click on the relevant product page and “size guide”.)

Once we have finished everything we will then send your outfit to you, around 2-4 weeks ahead of the wedding. We send via UPS Next Day Delivery fully tracked and insured, however if you would prefer to collect your outfit from the studio do let us know!

If you decide to have it delivered in the post, please note that your outfit will have been folded in order to package it up, so it will need a light steam once it arrives with you (instructions on how to care for your dress will be included in the box). 

If you are a rush order, we kindly ask that you either collect your outfit directly from the studio or organise a courier for collection, to avoid any delays in the post. We recommend Proovia or Addison Lee.

We are really proud of the fact that we offer a made in London service for a fraction of the price of many others in the industry, here and around the world. Our fabrics are amongst the most expensive you can buy and our seamstress has been in the industry for decades, working at large fashion houses and for luxury private clients. We have always kept our pricing transparent and fair. Pricing is listed on our website and we always separate out fitting costs rather than baking it into the price, in case a fitting is not required. Similarly we offer a modular approach so you can add more fittings as requested, rather than pricing up multiple fittings at once.
