Well, that’s not really a question, that’s a statement. But, how much time do you have? Haha.
I don’t. I love making each piece completely to each individual woman’s size and liking. There’s just something so special about having something specifically made just for you.
I will be releasing small handfuls of spots, right here, on our website, as often as I can. If you follow me on Instagram, @em_erge, I’ll always announce the “drop date” well ahead of time. Once the skirt spots are live, it will be first come, first serve.
It may vary slightly, depending on how busy I am. But, probably around once a month.
I primarily use African Wax Print cotton. As a whole, this type of fabric has a thicker weight and slightly waxy finish, which is part of what gives my skirts their shape and structure. When women are looking for a flowier shape that has less poof and perhaps more movement, I love to use “Bari J” fabric. I LOVE her prints. (Look her up on IG. You will die!)
YES! In pictures, I usually am wearing a crinoline underneath. My skirts are very full on their own, but, the crinolines are what helps give them that “ball gown” look. I don’t attach anything to the skirt itself because I want you to be able to wear it in daily life. And while it’s REALLY fun to have them THAT poofy, it’s not always practical. But, I love to give you the option as to how full you wear it.
Once you secure your spot, I will send you pictures of all the amazing options.
Unfortunately, no. I cycle through fabric fairly quickly. So, what you may see now may not be what I have when it’s your turn. I find it works better to not get stuck on HAVING to have a certain fabric, but, being openminded to what options may be available at the time.
With each release, my goal is to have them made within a month. Once I start a skirt, I have it made and in the mail within the week.
Absolutely! I can make any size! That’s the best part of it all being custom. Every skirt is made to each woman’s measurements.
There will be a certain number of spots available for purchase. The purchase price won’t be the total cost of the skirt, but, rather, a deposit to hold your spot and to start the consultation process.
I charge a $75 non-refundable deposit, which will go towards the cost of the skirt. It will be forfeited if, for any reason, you decide after the fact to not move forward.
The generally range from $180-$350, depending on the style.
Between 4-6 at a time.
Well, because I’m the only one making everything. Every single piece I personally make myself. That takes time. And, I make everything one at a time. I don’t do any “production.” I take a lot of pride in the quality of my work. And quality takes time. Also, as you may know, that at one point I was booked out for a year. I’m trying to not have that happen again. And this way, if you miss snagging a spot one month, you’ll have a new chance again the next month!
Once you’ve purchased a “custom spot,” I will contact you within 24 hours to begin the consultation process. That includes walking you through how to take your measurements, helping you choose the style best suited to you, fabric selection, and getting to know you for your “secret surprise” pockets. (Check out my IG page if you have no idea what I’m talking about!)
I do! I have them in multiple lengths and poofiness. They are $40-60.
99% of the time, I do. Occasionally, if someone has a fabric they want to use, then I just charge labor.
Not always. Because I work with a small vendor and I buy in small amounts, once a fabric is gone, we may never find it again. But I always will have other beautiful options.
You are more than welcome to search for it and send it to me if you find it. Then, as I mentioned before, I just charge labor.
I sure do. Shipping charges will vary.
Again . . . that’s not a question. *Wink* But I’m excited too! And I really appreciate your patience with my process. I look forward to hopefully working with you one day!
