FAQ


Q: Do you make custom fit clothing? Can I send in my measurements to you?
A: Yes, here at Hardley Dangerous Couture I use my pre-made patterns where all dresses are individually cut and sewn by the exact measurements given in the listing.  For an additional $36.50 fee you may choose to purchase a Custom Size that will have your dress custom made to your exact measurements.  

Q: I do not have 6-8 weeks to wait for a dress to be made but I really want to buy one, what can I do?
A: Hardley Dangerous Couture offers Rush Orders for an additional fee. This covers the materials that I must expedite to my studio in order to make your dress. Depending on the color and fabrics used this generally takes 3-4 weeks. 

Q: I ripped my dress! Can you fix it for me?
A: No, I do not offer any type of alterations at my studio. Hardley Dangerous Couture will ship you a perfect handmade garment that is ready to wear. If you happen to rip your garment while wearing it, you will need to go see your local seamstress to have any rips or tears professionally mended.   

Q: Do I really need to measure before I buy something from Hardley Dangerous Couture?
A: YES. You must actually measure and compare your true measurements to the ones listed in order to have the best fit. All items are handmade by pre-cut pattern templates and you must measure to get the best fit. I do not use standard retail sizes found by other boutiques. For the best fit and to save yourself heartaches over fit issues I highly recommend you measure first before making your purchase.

Q: My dress is too long through the torso and fits weird through the hips, can I have a refund?
A: No, this situation is easily avoidable if you had measured first before placing your order. Each listing is set up with detailed measurements and I specifically let you know that Petite dresses are cut shorter and Misses Sizes run longer. I will gladly exchange your dress for the correct size, however standard production wait times still apply on exchanged items at our studio.

Q: I live in Canada/Europe/Or Other International Country and have an event next month, how much will shipping be and can I get it in time??
A: Yes, I can probably make your dress and have it shipped to you in time. You will need to place a Rush Order which is a separate materials fee of $36.50US dollars per item. You will also need to pay for an Express Shipping upgrade in order to get your dress to you in time. Express Shipping is calculated during the last step at checkout. Please understand that my studio is always generally fully booked so please keep production times in mind when placing your order.

Q: Do you give discounts on Bridesmaids dresses?
A: Yes I do! Hardley Dangerous Couture will give your group a 10% discount off the purchase of 2 or more dresses.  Email directly to set up a custom order for your group at:  info@hardleydangerouscouture.com


Q: Why do I have to wait 6-8 weeks for one dress to be made?
A: I am very busy here at Hardley Dangerous Couture! All items are handmade in the order they are received. Claire personally sews each and every dress in my collection and I can not make my items any faster than my 4 semi industrial machines can go. Since my dresses are not factory produced, one person is making everything you see at my shop. 

Q: Why do you show your dresses with full petticoats and charge for them separately?
A: Based on client feedback the majority of my customers prefer to see my dresses shown full with petticoat underskirts. Since the majority of my clients already own a few petticoats (and to avoid an overly full closet), I choose to sell just the dress with the option to buy the petticoat underskirt if needed. It is also very clearly stated within each listing that petticoats are not included and are a separate fee.
