What do you sell?
We sell complete dressmaking kits delivered direct to your door. Each box/kit contains everything you need to make the garment of the month. Additionally, we run in person classes which can be booked via our website.
I only started sewing recently, are the boxes suitable for beginners?
We aim to provide a range of levels with some boxes being more suitable for beginners whilst others will be catered towards intermediate/advanced sewers. In the description of each dressmaking kit it will clearly define the level of skill required.
If I get stuck during the project is there any support?
I have created a Free “How to” video to accompany the kits, these provide tips on how to sew the various stages of each garment and handy hints on how to read the individual patterns if needed. These videos will help guide you through the process of completing your garment of choice.
I am only an email or telephone call away and will try to help you as best I can. There will also be a handy tip sheet accompanying each kit.
Where do you ship?
Currently we only ship to UK Mainland but hope to ship abroad in the not too distant future.
I would like to buy more than one box (eg one for myself and one for a friend as a gift). Am I able to arrange delivery to two separate addresses?
Yes, if you drop me an email with the required delivery addresses I will be able to ensure each box is sent to the correct location.
Are you a subscription service?
We are not a subscription service so boxes will not be automatically sent out every month. As our boxes are limited editions the emails will notify you of what is coming and purchase dates. Please note you can purchase our box in advance of the cut off date thereby securing your purchase.
Is there a cut off date for ordering that month’s dressmaking kits?
While there is no set cut off date for each kit, they are limited editions and once they are sold out we will have no more stock of that item. With this in mind, it is recommended you place your order early to avoid disappointment.
I just tried to order a dressmaking kit but it is sold out. Will you be producing more?
Our boxes are limited editions and once they are sold out there will be no more. Each kit is made with fabric included so only a limited number are prepared for sale.
When will my dressmaking kit arrive?
All kits will be shipped within 7 days of ordering and will be sent by courier.
Will I need to be at home to receive my box?
No, the courier will email you with notification of shipping and tracking schedule. Included in this email will be a link to be able to leave your parcel in a safe place.
How is my dressmaking kit packaged?
The kits are packed in a strong postal cardboard box with an additional waterproof covering.
What if I do not like what is in my dressmaking kit?
Unfortunately our kits are non refundable. Each kit is clearly described on the product page along with information regarding the contents for that month.
However, if the product inside the kit has been damaged in any way please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
Am I able to borrow a sewing machine for a workshop?
I do have a limited number of sewing machines available to use in class, please email email@example.com at the time of booking to request one, it will be on a first come first served basis. I do recommend that if you do have a machine it is best to bring your own to learn on.
Am I able to purchase the required materials needed for my class on the day of the class?
No, all the required materials listed in the class description need to be brought to class by you.
