Bespoke by Mooshi – For Custom Made Vintage Style Couture
Bespoke by Mooshi Service
The Bespoke by Mooshi® service aims to meet the most discerning needs of customers seeking high quality, custom made vintage styled clothes and accessories.
Bespoke by Mooshi® is an exclusive custom couture dressmaking service delivered under a couture commission agreement with the client.
Prospective customers are asked to arrange a comprehensive consultation with us to discuss their couture requirements. With the clients agreement an online bespoke proposal is then prepared for the client’s approval.
Once approved, this proposal forms an agreement between Mooshi and the client. This is followed by an appointment to take the client’s measurements in the privacy and comfort of their home or alternative suitable venue. A toile or sample is then prepared for a fitting or second consultation appointment.
The first toile fitting may then be followed by up to two more toiles and additional fittings to ensure the client is satisfied with the comfort, fit and appearance of their bespoke order. We can also fit toiles on our custom sized mannequin and publish photos and comments on these to the Client page of the Mooshimode gallery. This password protected page is accessible only by the client and allows us to communicate with them during production and ahead of any scheduled fitting appointment. For an overview of how the Bespoke by Mooshi service works please read “How it Works“.
Sampling Custom Made Accessories
When requesting a custom made accessory, we will assemble and send the client photos of the materials and sampling of any work that will embellish the accessory. The client can then choose to meet with us in person to discuss the sample and materials or request photos and our comments via the Client page of the Mooshimode gallery web site. Requests for materials not in our inventory will be considered however their supply will be at additional cost and delays may be incurred if these supplies need to be ordered. We recommend that all materials for a bespoke garment or accessory be sampled and ordered well in advance before an order is commenced.
Inclusions and additional extras:
For a custom made garment, the Bespoke by Mooshi® service includes a minimum of one toile to ensure correct fit. The toile is made up in a cotton calico.
For clients residing outside the greater Brisbane region we can arrange consultations and toile inspections via Skype, provided that the client is able to travel to our atelier for measurement taking and fittings.
Limitations of Vintage Patterns
Mooshi’s vintage patterns are available in a limited range of sizes that do not correspond with today’s clothing size conventions for women’s wear.
Depending on their complexity, we will rescale, alter or grade a vintage pattern to a modern size ranging from size 8 to 18 and will accommodate bespoke requests within this range. Sizes of our stocked vintage patterns can be found in the pattern’s description. You’ll find our vintage patterns in our Vintage Clothing Pattern Gallery. If your size is not shown, please contact us about resizing the pattern to your size or creating a bespoke size pattern for you. Mooshi’s original patterns are available from size 8 to 18 only.
Materials available for bespoke orders may also be limited at any given time and re-ordering of materials may cause delays in fulfilling a bespoke order. Materials are also subject to market availability. We will offer an alternative option or options in consultation with the client as necessary. We will also consider requests from customers wishing to use their own patterns and materials for bespoke production.
