Many steps are involved in making custom design garments. The first step is a consultation to discuss your needs. This is your chance to be creative. Bring pictures, sketches, color and fabric preferences you have in mind. Together we will create the design. Once we have agreed upon design and fabrics Sew Special by Joan will provide a cost estimate. Next, we take your measurements, create a sloper (sample garment) for initial fitting, and adjust the pattern as necessary. Now we’re ready to construct the garment. Fittings will be scheduled to complete the process. Your unique garment will be ready on time, and will be professionally steamed at no additional charge. The initial consultation appointment requires a $50 deposit when appointment is scheduled.
