FAQ

Things you need to know about Amanda Cooper Designs

DO I NEED TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I WANT… I HAVE LOTS OF DIFFERENT PICTURES?
That’s OK, we will sit together and chat about what you like in each one and formulate a design from there.

DO I NEED A PATTERN?
No I work from photographs or rough sketches and cut a pattern to your measurements

HOW MUCH TIME WILL I NEED?
The amount of time needed is dependent on the design and type of garment. Typically general made to measure takes about 12 weeks with weddings normally beginning planning about 12 months ahead with the actual fittings starting about 6 months before.

I DON’T HAVE THAT MUCH TIME?
Depending on workload quicker time frames can be arranged – please just ask!

WHAT WILL I NEED FOR MY FITTINGS?
To make sure your garment fits you just right it is important to bring your correct underwear and shoes. You may also want to try on your jewellery and accessories to see the total look.

DO YOU SUPPLY THE FABRIC?
I am happy to either work with your fabric or source the fabrics for you. Vintage fabrics or garments can also be used.
