Even though we make everything to your measurements, please do not be under impression that local alterations are guaranteed to not be needed. That is not at all the case as there are many reasons something does fit just right out of the bag, like: measurements taken incorrectly (we take measures such as asking for measuring photos but even that isn't a 100% foolproof method), measurements change in time due to weight loss or gain, posture related things (open back bodysuits are affected the most), and lastly, of course, we too can make a mistake and if we do we will solve it, here's how to address it:
HOW TO SUBMIT A CLAIM WHEN SOMETHING DOESN'T FIT TO A GREAT EXTENT:
Please contact us within a week post delivery for a solution. A statement "this garment piece doesn't fit" is unfortunately not a claim we can consider. If, for example, your skirt is too short for you, too wide, or too narrow, please kindly measure it, compare it to the measurements you gave us, and if a discrepancy is indeed found, please send us photos that show it (measuring tape around your body, measuring tape across the garment (we are happy to tell you how to measure the garment if you are not sure and need assistance). If we indeed are to blame for the ill fitting garment, beyond the extent of expected nips and tucks on the bodysuit or a tight fitting top we covered before, we will absolutely be of service of solving the problem. We will either pay for alterations on your end, send you a new garment or just a part of it (e.g, new sleeves), take it back to alter ourselves.
An item such as a bodysuit, especially open back one might be somewhat ill fitting right out of the bag regardless of all measurements being correct and it's just nobody's fault, it just requires local alterations. Posture alone is important for those, the arch of the back is important for those - those things can only be assessed during a real life fitting, as well as body asymmetry too. Sometimes brides send us their right and left measurements and they differ greatly - but actually we cannot address that. We will make the garment symmetrical, based on the larger side and the rest should be dealt with locally during a fitting. This is normal and should be expected.
We are always happy to advise on where we think a nip or a tuck should occur on your garment, or how to fix a specific issue (a bunching back, for example), so please ask anytime, send photos and we will provide assistance before you head to the local tailor, so you have some idea on what you're asking for once you get there.
I hope this answers the question what we are and are not liable for in regards of fit and how to address it with us. In any case - we ask you to kindly have your expectations realistic - local alterations should overall be expected when a top is involved in the purchase. Please do account for an extra 200 USD or so for them when purchasing a two piece wedding dress online without a single fitting.
Skirts alone are very unlikely to need alterations, and if they do, it's as simple as taking it in and hemming it. But we do not advise to add "extra for the length just in case", because if you do - you will have to have it hemmed, and some skirts have gorgeous hidden seams or ombre at the bottom and you would be doing it at the expense of those features.
Regarding color matching to items from other shops: the only way to guarantee that we make an exact matching garment (be it ivory, white, or another color) to another garment made elsewhere is to mail us a real life sample or that garment itself, that would safely be returned to you together with it's 100% matching other half. Please do not order our "ivory" to match other shops "ivory" without prior consultation - it is not guaranteed that everyone's "ivory" is the same exact matching shade, everyone may have different ones. The ivory we use is light and sometimes more likely to match another vendors "off white" than a true, deeper, more yellow ivory.

If you're thinking about it, do it! This skirt is so well-made, with two heavy inner layers of satin and three dreamy layers of sturdy tulle. It floats like a cloud when dry, and I received so many compliments from family, vendors, and passersby. I also mean it when I say sturdy--my skirt survived trekking through post-hurricane rains and flooded city streets and parks, with just a few small tears in the tulle that were easily stitched up. After a cleaning, it looks good as new! Inge was very communicative and helpful when discussing color options (I ended up choosing two layers of pure white over one layer of dusky pink after discussion), and sent along extra buttons at request in addition to adjustments in band width and train length. Delivery was on-time, and the skirt was packaged very well for travel.

This skirt is even better than I thought ! It really IS like in the pictures, and the quality is top notch. The details are beautiful (the buttons, the satin band...)-everything looks great. It feels heavy in a very good way and really flows when you walk. I could not recommend more ! Also, Inge is very nice and helpful as she answers any question you might have. Thank you!

A stunning skirt, quality was wonderful, Inge a pleasure to work with. I was nervous about ordering sight unseen but everything was perfect, apart from a slight mix up on the length of the skirt, but it's fine as it ended up longer than it should have, easy to fix.

Inge was brilliant throughout the whole process, answering questions, sending photographs of the fabric in different lighting and giving me a realistic timeframe (even so the skirt arrived much faster than I expected, with excellent tracking!). It's so special to know your skirt has been handmade with care, the label inside is such a lovely touch. The Morgana skirt was perfect, a lovely shape (I chose sweep train) and layered with enough thickness to hide thermal leggings, but lightweight enough for our photographer (@lina_hayes) to get some amazing shots of the skirt caught in the Scottish wind! If you are deliberating on ordering online, I can assure you that Inge and her team are great and as long as you follow the measurement video (wear your wedding shoes when you do!) then the end product will exceed your expectations!
