I've received a lot of requests for custom embroidered outfits, and while I'd love to fulfill all of those requests (especially for those special birthday parties!!), it's unfortunately just too difficult logistically to select the right textiles in an efficient manner/length of time, make the sure the requested size fits the desired textile, maximize the embroidery for the requested size/style of outfit while also maximizing the remainder of the textile for other customer outfits, etc. :(
SO, all that being said, I've outlined below how I'm currently "accepting" custom orders for embroidered outfits--
Embroidered Outfit Waitlist
** 8/22/17 UPDATE: THE EMBROIDERED OUTFIT WAITLIST HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE WHILE I TAKE SOME TIME FOR MATERNITY LEAVE. THOSE ALREADY ON THE LIST WILL RETAIN THEIR SPOT WHEN THE LIST IS RE-OPENED, BUT NO FURTHER ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME. THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!! **
I've started a waitlist for preferential selection and pre-purchase of vintage embroidered outfits for each release. When your name comes up next on the list, you will then have the opportunity to select any size available from the upcoming outfit release and pre-purchase that outfit without having to wait/scramble to checkout quickly on release days. If there isn't an outfit in the size/style you'd like in the upcoming release, you may pass on that release and wait until the next one until an outfit is available that you desire. PLEASE NOTE: You may pass up to TWO times until your name will be moved to the bottom of the list again- we gotta keep things moving. ;) There will be ONE "waitlist opportunity" per release (so as to give those not on the waitlist an opportunity to also purchase an outfit as well).
If you would like to add your name to the waitlist, please use the "Contact" form (bottom right hand of page) and enter in the subject line, "Waitlist Request" and in the body of the message, write "Please add me to the embroidered outfit waitlist!"
I will respond to you within 24 hours as to where you are placed on the list!
You may of course continue to purchase outfits while you are still on the list, whether or not you are chosen to pre-purchase, and if you would like your name removed from the list for any reason, just send me an email!
Custom Outfit using your own textile
The other option to get a "custom" outfit is to provide your own textile! I love doing these types of orders as you not only will get a price break for providing some of the materials, but you will receive a one-of-a-kind piece that will hopefully mean something to you personally! So raid your grandma's attics or hit up those estate sales and send me an email so we can get started!
PLEASE NOTE: These requests/orders are subject to "pre-screening" the fabrics to make sure they are suitable for outfit creation (size, quality, amount of embroidery, etc.).
Customer will be responsible for shipping cost to send fabric to Standard of Grace, but normal shipping rates apply to ship the completed outfit to you (free in the US!).
