Velvet Tart Prices and Info

The following is a list of services provided by the Velvet Tart:

      Historical- Garments for reenactment of any time period: Renaissance, Victorian, etc. Can be made period-accurate or with modern hacks like zippers & clips. Or pockets!
      Burlesque- Modular costumes and lingerie for performers. Can be made to requested specifics, or designed unique through consultation.
      Theatrical- Garments specially rigged for stage use. Can be modified existing clothing, or designed unique through consultation.
      Cosplay- Props and garb made for your personal expression of geekery. None of that Nazi shit.
      Design- Consultation and images rendered of any of the above, used to inform and explain construction to another maker for theatrical or personal use. Totes no jealousy.

     Modification to existing clothing to better fit a client's unique shape. Off-the-rack, department store vanity-sizing will be tolerated no longer!

     Replacing, modifying, or fixing damaged clothing.

     Clothing made to fit a client's unique shape. Can be from a pattern or hand-drafted. No size restrictions.

Haute Couture 
     Clothing made in the traditional, French style of high fashion: By hand, all of it. Perfect fit, all of it. A personal dress form is made, patterns drafted by hand, every stitch hand sewn. Ridiculously expensive, but mad bragging points awarded.

(subject to change, with notice. Because I forget things sometimes)
