WHEN TO SCHEDULE
You can schedule your appointments as far in advance as you wish. If you are planning to gain/loose/shape up, and think you will change in size, please book an appointment as close to your event as typical turnaround times will allow. The online schedule system is the best way to book at your convenience.
PRICE ESTIMATE CONSULTATIONS
LB Designs provides a very transparent and comprehensive price list online for most procedures done on garments. If the price list is not helpful, you can email an image of your garment to and what you think needs to be done, and LB will get back to you with some ranges for the prices. LB Designs also offers consultations in the studio for a fee of $45 for bridal/custom design/formal and $35 for non-bridal/casual garment.
WHAT TO BRING
Once the appointment is scheduled, you should receive a confirmation and a reminder closer to the date of your appointment. For all of your appointments, please bring your shoes (or same size heel - very important for marking the hem properly), and any shape-wear/undergarments you are planning to wear with your garments.
LB Designs understands that there are all kinds of circumstances, and offers a 20% DISCOUNT ON RE-ALTERATIONS DUE TO weight loss/gain, change of shoes (heel size), and change of mind on the previously agreed procedure. If none of the following happened and the garment needs additional work on the seams for which you were previously charged, LB will be happy to adjust them free of charge.
At LB’s discretion, a full refund on canceled orders minus the non-refundable $45 consultation fee for bridal, or minus $35 for non-bridal and/or the non-refundable fitting fee of $5 for 30 min/ $10 1 hour can be provided. The refund will be provided in the original form of payment. If the work already has been completed to the prior agreement, a refund will not be provided.
