our Mail-Order Service
first thing you should understand about Lindsay Fleming
is that we do not have a stock of wedding
dresses, other than a small collection of sample gowns.
This means that any dress ordered from us, will be created
to your own specifications.
offer two distinct services for clients:
cannot visit our studio, you can still order a Lindsay
Fleming dress by taking advantage of our unique
mail-order service. It is important
to understand that this service will still provide you
with a made-to-measure gown, based
on the measurements you provide. This service has been
used successfully by clients from all over the world,
who due to the distance between themselves and our studio,
could not make it in person to the fittings.
mail-order process, step by step
our mail-order service, you
will most likely have found our presence on
the internet and will be unable to travel
to Scotland for fittings. This will almost
certainly have triggered a number of e-mail
or telephone conversations to thoroughly discuss
your requirements with a designer. If necessary
we would produce a sketch of any changes to
the dress. If you decide to choose a Lindsay
Fleming dress, you will be given a fixed
price for the order. Please be sure to check
what is and is
not included in the price.
Once the design has been finalised, the fabric
chosen, and embroidery defined, you will be
required to provide a series of simple measurements.
This however may not be required until nearer
your wedding date.
next stage of the mail-order process
will involve us making a pattern followed
by a 'toile' or 'mock-up' to your own measurements.
Once this has been done we will post this
to you to make sure that it fits. At this
stage some clients prefer to obtain the services
of a seamstress to make sure the fitting is
correct. If there are any alterations required,
then the toile should be pinned/marked and
sent back to us at Lindsay Fleming.
once your toile is a perfect fit would the creation
of your dress begin. This may take several weeks
or months of elapsed time.
when your dress is ready for shipping you will
informed. Due to the possibility of minor alterations
being required to the dress when it is received,
we have reduced the mail-order
price. Therefore any such alterations are the
responsibility of the client and should be budgeted
for before any order is placed.
