HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I ORDER MY DRESS?
Please know that your dress will be made FROM SCRATCH after your full payment is received. I have very few items Ready to Ship and this dress will be custom made in the Size, Length, Style and Color you select! If shopping for your upcoming event: I always recommend ordering your dress a minimum of 6-8 weeks before you need to wear the dress. If you are in a hurry and you absolutely need your dress made sooner you will need to purchase a 21 day Rush Order.

 

RUSH ORDER:  if time does not allow for our standard production time of 6-8 weeks my studio offers a Rush Order service which completes your dress in 3 weeks (21 full days) for an additional $36.50 fee per dress ($50.00 fee applies on all DRESS WITH TULLE Petticoat sets!)  Click on the photo below to purchase expedited production of your dress:

HOW ITS MADE:
Your Cheri Bridesmaid Dress is a designer original sewn from super soft cotton jersey spandex stretch knit and is handmade just for you by Boss Lady Claire at her Los Angeles studio. Never factory produced, you will be proud to wear this American original created just for you in the size, style and color you choose (see photos for details). Every cut and curve of this stunning dress evokes the glamour of the 1950s updated for today's pin up! Fall in love with it's hourglass silhouette that is built for speed and designed to turn heads.

BRIDESMAIDS, CORPORATE GATHERINGS & SPECIAL EVENTS:
We can absolutely outfit your entire group for your upcoming wedding party or special event! Message us today to set up your reserved listing for your Bridesmaids or Special Event dresses. We can outfit 2-25 people or more! Multiple item discounts are available! Please gather the following details we will need from you to set up your reserved order:

1. Event Date. How soon do you need to have your dresses made? Group orders require a minimum of 8 weeks for our studio to complete.

2. Number of dresses. How many dresses will you be having our studio make for your upcoming event?

3. Size, Style and Color: We need First & Last Name of each Bridesmaid or Guest along with their Size, Style, Color, Fabric and Dress Length in order to set up your reserved listing. Providing this in advance will give you a much more accurate quote as pricing varies by Style, Fabric, Size and Length at our studio. ** Cherrybomb Velvet dresses will cost more than Cherrybomb Ponte de Roma Dresses and are a completely different price from The CHERI casual cotton jersey dress. Floor Length Maxi dresses will cost more than a Knee Length Swing dress.

4. Petticoats. Will your Bridesmaids or Group need to purchase petticoats to wear underneath their dresses? It highly recommended to purchase the petticoat for a full and flared look. Each sold separately.

5. Zipcode. We will ship all dresses to one address based on your Zipcode provided. If you wish to split the shipment between 2 addresses or have your dresses individually sent to each recipient, we can absolutely do that for you as requested and we will need calculate the additional shipping fee's that will be required.

6. Deposit. A 50% materials fee is required for our studio to make your group of Bridesmaid or Special Event dresses. This deposit guarantees that your dress fabric is in stock and available in the quantity you need and all dye lots will match. You may then choose to pay the balance due in full or split it equally amongst each bridesmaid to pay their balance due on each individual Dress.

❤️✂️♠️ Please know that if you refuse to pay the 50% deposit to reserve materials and choose to go it alone rather than setting up a reserved listing with our studio: dye lots will vary and exact match colors are not guaranteed! This often occurs when you purchase your dresses separately over weeks, sometimes months, without first reserving your Dress fabrics in advance. Our vendors supply us with fabrics that vary from bolt to bolt and some colors will eventually sell out. It is highly recommended to reserve ALL dress fabrics in advance to avoid such sad occurrences that can easily be avoided by reserving your fabric upfront.

♠️✂️❤️ HOW TO MEASURE ❤️✂️♠️
You will need the following measurements to determine your size at HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE:

BUST: Measure around the fullest part of bust (preferably with the bra you plan on wearing underneath your dress)

WAIST: You are buying a high waist style of dress and will need to measure 2” above your belly button to determine your waist measurement.

UPPER BODICE: Measure from top of shoulder to 14” down. This is generally where this stretch knit dress will fall at your waist.

FULL BUST or PLUS SIZES: If you have a very full bust or are a plus sized gal: you may request at no additional charge to have Claire add length through the torso to offset the otherwise Empire Waist effect that sometimes occurs based on your individual body shape and size. Please measure down 14" from top of shoulder to waist to see if this falls in line with your natural waist. Write her a message to seller during checkout if you need additional length added through the torso. NOTE: this customization will make your dress a final sale item with no Returns or Exchanges made possible as it will no longer be considered a Standard Size at HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE. Please double check all measurements for accuracy before submitting them with your order.
