Questions about our products
What sizes do Salwar Kameez, Lehenga, Sarees or Kurti come in and can i make specific changes to the design?Salwar Kameez, Anarkali Suits and Lehengas which are semi-stitched or unstitched are available only in one standard size. The product description details the size range that the suit can be stitched up to (eg. 32" to 42") the maximum length for most anarkali suits will be 57'' unless stated otherwise on the product description. All changes are subject to design limitations and our stitching team will email you advise what can and cannot be changed as per design. For sarees and lehengas the blouse piece will be unstitched for most and will need to be customised also fall, pico and binding work may be needed in these sarees. The lehenga will need stitching to from one side and a drawstring is placed to tie this at the waist. Our tailors use drawstrings only all lehengas to tie at waist, for blouses our tailors will add closures accordingly to the design, e.g. if a zip and buttons are to be used these will be to the best match available with the tailor to match the garment or what is provided with the garment and cannot be changed. Most sarees will come with unstitched petitcoat and most will not. These suits need to be tailored to fit by a tailor For suits which are ready-made, such as some salwar kameez and kurtis the size or size options will be shown on the product detail page Many products may sometimes have tiny gem stones which are prone to fall off these delicate garments and unfortunately there is not much that can be done for this as that is how they are made by the manufacturers of the design. We can however supply additional matching stones in such cases. Many designs which have machine work may not be perfectly embroidered as they are done by machine work only where there may be some minor work differing. Please note that these garments are made by the manufacturing companies and we do our best to check every individual piece before sending out. If in doubt, please contact us,What does it mean when the outfit is semi stitched?Semi-stitched anarkali means the dress will come stitched with the seam left open that we can stitch according to your size. Semi-stitched salwar kameez means half stitched outfit in which styles are pre-constructed with pre-defined neck styles, sleeve style, sleeve length, neck depths and outfit length. In these clothing, only side seams are left open, which you can stitch according to your size.. Buttons, zips and other neckline, lining and piping work may need to be customised further by a tailor. On most semi-stitched suits the length may not be altered as this would ruin the embroidery work. These semi-stitched suits are designed to be stitched together as shown on the model pictures unless the description states otherwise. but some experienced tailors may be able to make good variations of the design. All products have ready embroidery work on them and these can not be stitched to some specifics when customising. For them to look exactly as shown in the images they will come with ready embroidered necklines, front/back and sleeves on the unsticthed/ semi-stitched material.The description says the suit will fit up to 40' bust, I am 42' will there be extra material?/back There is usually only enough material to customise to the size(s) stated in the product description. If you are looking to extend the design (i.e. cover more of the midriff section where the model pictures show otherwise) there may not be enough material to cover this. We only recommend stitching to the style as modelled and keeping to the range of sizes indicated in the descriptionI have a sewing machine and I want to stitch a suit myself, how difficult is it to put together?Most designer semi-stitched and unstiched suits require a professional tailor to put together. Some designs may come with extra pieces such as straps which need to be attached or need neckline alterations. We advise that you always sought out a professional tailor to customise these suits.Do you provide tailoring services?Currently we provide a limited stitching service on a small selection of our products. Products where a stitching service is available will clearly be shown in the product description. Note: on products for example in a saree/ lehenga saree the length can not be cut and tailored to size as this is tucked into and wrapped around a inner petticoat for which there will a option to select on the product page.
