Hazel and her team will work with you throughout the design process, providing you with every option, while maintaining your budget and making informed decisions about your design.
(22-28 weeks prior to scheduled due date)
During this time, we will discuss your budget, ideas, and dreams for your team. Hazel will make suggestions and/or recommendations according to your needs, and will begin the design process.
Design and Estimate
(12-18 weeks prior to scheduled due date)
While presenting you with sketches, fabric, and design options, we will discuss your team’s dresses. Upon finalizing your design, we’ll provide a cost estimate. Any new ideas, feedback or concerns should be discussed during this time, as we are finalizing the total cost per garment. Once your design is complete, a 50% deposit is required to begin the prototype.
Prototype and Size Selection
(8-10 weeks prior to scheduled due date)
At this point in the process, you will receive a prototype of your design to review. We will then discuss any desired changes necessary prior to production, and will have you provide a filled-out measuring form with your team’s sizes. This helps our expert staff determine the sizes needed for each team member. Please note: any major design changes will be subject to additional charges.
(6-8 weeks prior to scheduled due date)
Now it’s time for the fun to begin! Your pattern will be graded to create all of the sizes needed, along with cutting, sewing, and adding any embellishments to your design. Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
Finalizing Garments and Payment
(1 week prior to scheduled due date)
The remaining balance is due when your garment or group is ready to be picked up or shipped. Your garments will include care instructions and a copy of your team’s roster with corresponding sizes. Thank you, as we greatly appreciate your business, and best of luck to your upcoming season!
