Frequently asked questions
BEFORE YOU ASK THE QUESTION, PLEASE READ THIS TO THE END!
IF YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS OR WANT TO ARRANGE MEETING PLEASE SEND MAIL AT KONTAKT@SUKNIEBOHO.PL – DO NOT CALL PLEASE 🙂
On this page I have collected the most important questions that are frequently asked by my clients. To facilitate our contact questions are below with the answers. 🙂
1. Can I make an appointment at the weekend?
Unfortunately, my studio does not work on weekends. We sew 5 days a week and I leave weekends and holidays for rest, marketing activities, photo sessions, etc. Please respect this and do not call on those days when you are also resting, and if you send an email on Friday, wait calmly for the answer to Monday: )
2. Can I call you to arrange a visit or discuss a dress design?
This is not the best solution. It is definitely better to send an e-mail (not SMS, not Facebook, not Instagram message!). During the day I do not have time to talk because I’m in the process of sewing with another client 🙂 Besides, just after the conversation I forget what we have established, and when you start telling me about the dress of your dreams it is difficult to me to imagine exactly what you describe. By sending an email you can attach photos with inspirations, describe exactly what you care about, where you are from, what budget you have, and when you get married – thanks to everything will be clear to me, nothing escapes us and I will be able to choose the best time for you (as soon as I will be at a computer with a schedule!).
3. How much is the dress no. xx?
The prices of dresses from the collections located in the COLLECTION tab are in the range of 2500 – 4500. These are examples of variants that we can work on together – freely combine tops and pits, add or subtract tulle layers. Individual dresses located in the CUSTOM MADE gallery are not ready models, but the result of working with a client over a dress created from scratch especially for her. These are dresses that are created on the client’s body, tailored to the figure and preferences, designed and sewn with her and for her. Individual dresses in the pictures are usually models that can not be copied. They are sewn from pieces of various materials – usually unique. You can not try them or see them live (except for a few pieces). You can also create your dream dress based on inspiration or your own design. The prices of this individual sewing service start at 4500 zlotys. You can specify your maximum budget and I will help you choose the right solutions and materials to achieve the best effect at a given price. Do not worry, if you have a smaller budget, you will certainly be able to find something for yourself in my COLLECTION of ready-made designs.
4. What is the price of this dress? Is it possible to have this dress cheaper?
The price depends primarily on the amount that the client wants to spend on her dream dress. The most important thing is that I adjust to the client’s budget, I propose such solutions and materials so that the effect is the best in the amount given to the dress by the client. I can give an approximate price for such a dress, but it can be flexible and to be agreed with the client earlier. The final price is influenced by many factors – the type and quantity of materials, the amount of manual work, the date, the number of changes at sewing time etc. Sometimes I am able to make a cheaper version of a very expensive dress by changing the sewing materials and technique so that the price will drop significantly for this style the dress will be preserved. When it comes to models from the collection, you can lower the cost of sewing if, for example, you remove the tulle layer from under the lace. In terms of individual sewing, we must take into account that you need to create a dress vision from scratch, choose materials, create a new form … it is more time-consuming and therefore more expensive.
5. I like dress number xx. Can you make this for me, in my size?
All dresses are tailor made. If you choose a model from the collection, it will be selected and matched to your figure and height (yes, XXL too). However, if you bet on the CUSTOM MADE project, these are not ready patterns of dresses, you will not try them on. You must have your vision in your head or trust me to choose a dress for you that will show you what you have the best and will hide what you would not like to show. This is not an option for undecided or limited confidence! Both of them do not want a full-day sewing situation, where at the end the client is dissatisfied and says that she would prefer something else.
6. I would like such a dress, but with a different neckline. Can you make changes to the models?
All dresses are tailor made. If you choose a model from the collection, it will be selected and matched to your figure and height (yes, XXL too). However, if you bet on the CUSTOM MADE project, are not ready patterns of dresses, you will not try them on. You must see what you want to do. This is not an option for undecided or limited confidence! Both of them do not want a full-day sewing situation, she would prefer something else.
7. Do you design only boho dresses?
I love boho and I like to sew wedding dresses in this style the most. Many of my clients came to me with the intention of sewing such a dress, many wanted more traditional, but ultimately decided on just such a style. However, I do not just create a boho style dresses. From what the dress will look like, in what style and fashion depends entirely on the client’s preferences. I can show you solutions that you can take into account to achieve the best effect, but the final decision belongs to you. For sure the commonality of my dresses is their softness 🙂
8. Can I arrange and try on your dresses?
At the moment I do not arrange meetings for fitting-out. The whole process of choosing a dress for a silhouette, choosing materials or even discussing the creation of an CUSTOM MADE dress takes place in the morning on the day of sewing, previously arranged by e-mail. If you want me to create a dress for you, send an e-mail by contacting the date of your wedding, describing the inspiration, outlining the budget you want to spend on the dress, and I will send you a deadline proposal in answer 🙂 I have several dresses in my studio for sale and patterns of dresses from COLLECTION, as well as separate mountains and pits that can be combined freely.
9. Nie jestem pewna jaką suknię chciałabym na swój ślub.
It does not matter 🙂 A significant number of clients come without clearly defined preferences regarding their wedding dress. Some do not know in what style they would like a dress, others think they are imperfect and think that they will look bad in each. My role in this, to show in what fashion is the best for my client, in which he will feel beautiful and what can be boldly show and what we can hide. The most important thing is that the client would feel beautiful and free to please her first of all. I am here to help achieve this goal. Thanks to many years of experience as a makeup artist, stylist and designer, I know how to choose a cut and fabric for a given figure, but also a type of beauty.
10. I like the dress without back, but I do not want to go to the wedding without a bra. Can we do it?
There are several solutions – we can buy a bra with a lowered fastening and cut the back to this place or sticky bra, we can also give up the bra but lace the dress so that you feel “safe”, you can also use self-supporting bra and put the straps so that they prevent peel off. Wedding dresses that I sew, are tailor made according to styles and solutions chosen by the client. I adapt all the dresses to the preferences and silhouette of the woman. When sewing, I will use solutions that will help achieve this goal. Therefore, it is up to the client whether the dress will be bold or modest, sheathed or covered, whether it will be worn without a bra or with a bra or with sewn-on applications covering the bust. Because the neck in the presence of the client and her participation, she will decide what final look she will get her wedding dress.
11. What does the dress sewing process look like?
Before the meeting, if the client has preferences regarding the fashion of the dress and the solutions used, we can set the direction in which we will move while sewing the dress by phone or e-mail. For sure there will be useful pictures of the client’s silhouette and inspirations, which are very much on the Internet or on my fanpage @suknie_boho. On the sewing day we usually meet in the morning and first specify or determine the fashion, the type of materials that will be used. We choose materials, laces and decorations and start to create a dress of your dreams 🙂 I sew all day long on the client’s body and “with her” so the client is both a model and co-creator of the dress. When sewing, we decide together how the dress is going to look like, so it’s perfect if the client has all day long to sew it. The process of sewing a wedding dress usually lasts from one to two days and depends on what solutions are used to create it. If it can be finished the same day, the client can immediately take her dream wedding dress home, if not then finish it the next day 🙂
12. How long does it take to sew a dress? Is it true that you create dress in 1-2 days?
Yes! Remember, however, that the sewing takes place at a pre-arranged date, which I have very little left and not spontaneously from day to day. The creative process begins at the moment of our e-mail contact when we can discuss the fashions, budget and preferences of the client. The sewing process in my workshop usually lasts from 1 to 2 days, when the client can devote this time to sewing together. Because the neck is made to order, to size and on the client’s body, the sewing process takes place in its presence. During this time, we jointly choose cuts, cuts, materials and solutions. I totally devote myself to the client and her dress, so we start to create in the morning and usually on the evening of the same day the client can take her dress home. In the case of sewing models from the COLLECTION, you will have two hours of breaks during the day. When sewing a CUSTOM MADE project, usually one lunch break 🙂
13. I live outside of Warsaw or Poland. How much do I have to come to?
Since the sewing of a wedding dress lasts 1-2 days, it is probably enough that you will come to Warsaw for one day or, alternatively, for one night. During this time, I will sew a dress for you, with which you can still go home the same day or the next. The fittings will not be needed because I sew on the client’s body and with it, so the dress is immediately matched to the figure.
14. Do you sew at a distance?
I can make dress for a distance, but not every cut can be perfectly adapted to the client’s body. It is possible to sew a dress which, due to its cut, will fit, however, I recommend that you devote one or two days and come to my studio in Warsaw where we can sew your dream creation ideally suited to your figure. If you want to sew a dress at a distance, please contact me.
15. What do I need for a sewing a dress?
First and foremost I need You for a meeting :). It’s best for you to take the nude-colored underwear and a smooth, nude-colored bra for the sewing process, in which you would like to go to the wedding. If it is to be a strapless dress, you should take a strapless bra – to him we will choose the shape and finish of the neckline. If you do not know what bra will be needed, it is possible to buy a bra during the meeting. It would be very good if you had “these” shoes or shoes with a heel of the same height as the wedding shoes, because we will need to determine the length of dress. It would also be good to have nude-colored underpants to check if the dress is showing through too much 🙂
16. Can you sew the dress of this “designer”?
I do not sew and do not copy models of other individual designers. They can only be an inspiration for a dress that I sew for clients. If you like a dress, we can look at it in style, but I will not copy someone else’s work. Besides, please remember that it’s not always what looks good on the picture or on the model is the best for us. Therefore, it is better to create something perfectly suited to our silhouette and type of beauty inspired by a million pictures than by copying one 🙂
17. What if I lose weight / gain weight before the wedding? Are possible corrections possible?
Dresses are flexible and flowing – they fit the figure and even if they are smaller or larger than the client’s dimensions, this is not a problem. Probably more than once you saw me in the pictures in clients’ dresses – each one had totally different dimensions than me and it looks as if the dresses were tailored to me;) For almost 3 years I have not had to change the client’s dress.
18. Can I take an accompanying person on the sewing?
Of course! You can go with whom you want, even with children, if you do not have them where to leave 🙂 It is important that the person who supports you is objective and does not advise you something in which she would rather see yourself than you.
