How does Custom work?

Design Consultation

We meet at your convenience and discuss what you might want in a gown. We will look at silhouette, color, neckline, and fabric. 

Design Presentation

We go over the gown design in closer detail by presenting you with a digital sketch rendered in color and fabric of your choice. At this time body measurements are also taken. 


Once you are happy with the details of the design we provide you with an estimate for your review. We sign a contract and secure a 50% deposit towards the cost of the garment. At this time we schedule a muslin fitting.

Fittings in muslin

In order to assure a perfect fit of your gown it is necessary to create a sample in muslin. In fashion design a muslin is a basic cotton cloth that is used to make changes to the design without wasting expensive fashion fabric, Generally designs require up to 3 fittings in a muslin before the fashion fabric is cut.

Custom Order Agreement

Fashion Design Models

All custom sales are final at Spangelo Designs. A non-refundable deposit of 50% of estimate is required before the first muslin fitting. Once contract is signed between client and designer the design can not be changed. Remaining balance is due at final fitting/ garment pick-up.
