The Design Process:
I will meet with you to discuss the occasion, venue and overall feel of the event. At your consultation, feel free to bring photos of design elements you love from magazines or the internet. Aly Q strives to design one of a kind custom garments specially for you and will not copy other designs.
*If you decide to move forward into the design phase, a small non-refundable deposit towards your design will be collected.
Approve Sketch and Fabric Choices
I will then create sketches, and present fabric options for you to approve. Once the sketch and fabric are approved a 50% deposit is collected and the patternmaking and garment construction will begin.
The initial pattern is made and the construction of a mockup in muslin fabric begins. At the first fitting, you will get to see your garment come to life, I'll also see what adjustments need to be made. The balance is due at this fitting.
The pattern is then adjusted. At this point the cutting and construction of the final garment begins.
Your dress will be steamed and ready to be tried on one last time. If no further adjustments are needed, you can now take home your garment!
Any additional design and/or material fees will be collected at this time.
