We begin with an initial consultation to get to know you on a personal level and better understand your likes, dislikes and lifestyle plus what is important to you regarding fit, appearance, overall style. I will guide you through the options available when working with Summer Couture, and answer any questions you may have.
After identifying what needs adding or replacing in your wardrobe, I'll present and guide you through our range of cloths, based upon when and where you will be wearing each garment, and the different qualities.
I then take detailed measurements of your body, shape and posture so that we achieve a perfect fit and ultimate comfort. Final adjustments will be made later if needed, and we allow extra fabric in the seams so that your suit may be adjusted should your body shape change.
It's now time to style the garment. This is where you can keep things simple or add touches of individuality and your own personality. This can range from choosing the lining inside the suit, to lapel width or button and button hole colour, as every single area of each garment can be picked to suit you and your needs.
Once the garment is made and ready, we agree a convenient time and place for your fitting. If any area needs to be altered or changed, this is when it will be determined. The clothing needing alteration will then be taken away and brought back for a second fitting to ensure you are left with a garment that is perfect.
Aftercare is something that is often overlooked. I like to make sure that clients know it is my job to continue to deliver that personal service to ensure the item continues to look as it should. If you gain or loose weight, damage the clothing or need an alteration of any kind, I will make myself available to assist you.
