Q:Do You Accept Returns?

However, if the item does not fit due to measuring errors on our part we will gladly accept a return of the outfit for adjustments. IF the item ordered does not fit due to error on your part we will not make another for you to replace the one that is wrong, nor will we refund the cost of the custom order.
We will not refund custom ordered outfits or items if they have been worn or used. If you cancel your order you still will have caused me to miss out on a possible order because they might not have wanted to wait ... all required deposits to start an order, including rush order fees, and any payments made are final and non-refundable, this includes sewing order deposits ($50) and beadwork order deposits (half of total up front).

We accept rush sewing orders for an additional fee depending on what kind of outfit it is, size, and time frame... outfit quotes given through the website, email, or text are for the outfit only. If you need an order rushed we can provide that quote for you. We do not accept rush beading orders at this time. This fee, is due at time of deposit, is non-refundable.
Q: What kind of time frame will you give me for my order?A: Time frame is dependent on a few things; when the deposit for your work order is received, custom order form is filled out, all required measurements are received. We cannot give specific dates or times when things will be completed or shipped... We will give an approximate amount of time needed to complete the order, but we are an active family that participates in powwows, and bear dances, and we do have things that need to be repaired or created .... also as parents of 4 children unexpected things occur...

When your outfit is done you will receive an email, if you opt for the Lay-a-way Plan you have 60 days from the date of the email to pay for your item in full.
