NOTICE:  WE DO
NOT SELL PATTERNS

  YOU   MUST   DOUBLE    
  ALL   PRICES   SHOWN
   

We have just been so busy that we can't hardly handle all the business and we have 
only been making less than $3.00 per hour for our labor of love SEWING.  We thank all of you for your continued business and realize that these price changes will deter some from being our future continuing customers.  We are sorry about that, but just need some time for ourselves and family.  So until further notice (or removal of this notice)

YOU MUST DOUBLE all prices shown in our on-line catalog.  They have not been doubled yet... Everything is double, double the prices shown, double the shipping costs shown, double 
everything... just thought I would say that for convenience sake and simplification.  If you were planning on an order but have not sent it prior to 2005... then you will have to double the prices shown  


Sincerely, 

Lydia of Purple

And may our God bless you richly, as you dress modestly, for him.

NOTICE:  WE DO NOT SELL PATTERNS

ORDER FORM IS PROVIDED BELOW.  PRINT ONE OUT AND MAIL WITH YOUR PAYMENT.  Please read this complete page before sending us an order.  Thank you.  Lydia of Purple

See Some of Our Customer's Comments  

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  If you are sending 100% cotton & denim fabrics be sure to Preshrink it by washing in hot water and dry on a hot temperature setting BEFORE sending 100% cotton fabric to us - this will pre-shrink the material so the garment won't get too small on you from shrinking after it is sewn. 

We do NOT return patterns sent  to us or fabric/remnants sent to us but we do keep your pattern on file for one year from your last purchase off it.

 

NORMAL PRODUCTION TIME        Our normal turn-around-time is two to three weeks. Wedding items should allow six to eight weeks order to completion. Counting from time we receive your order until we ship it back. Therefore you need to allow for shipping time also. We can not be responsible for the amount of time it takes the U.S. Post Office to deliver once we have mailed the package with them.

RUSH ORDERS:       Only put RUSH garments on a RUSH order form.       

RUSH Clothing other than bridal/wedding.  Clothing rush orders are SHIPPED within seven days of receipt of order for an additional $10.00 per garment (not including bridal or wedding attire). Return Shipping by Priority Mail, if you have multiple items in your order (mixing RUSH items with NORMAL TIME items this is considered two separate orders, the one being a "RUSH order" the other being a "NORMAL order", requires an additional $7.00 shipping and handling even if it is one garment.   The $10.00 per garment on RUSH orders is to put you in front of everyone else who is patiently waiting for their garments to be delivered to them (secretly hoping sooner than normal), which could also require some late nights and less sleep on the part of the seamstress.  The RUSH charge has nothing to do with Shipping Charges per order.  Special shipping requests / over-night / next-day (Express Mail) delivery is available but extra, all other orders will be shipped via our Standard Shipping practices listed herein. All payment is required in advance so if you want Special Shipping you will have to send enough to cover it.

RUSH BRIDAL OR WEDDING RUSH orders are SHIPPED within fourteen days of receipt of order for an additional 20% per item. If you desire SPECIAL SHIPPING - ONE DAY / over-night / next-day (Express Mail) shipping is available but extra - shipping is not included in the 20% RUSH LABOR CHARGE. All other orders will be shipped via our Standard Shipping practices listed herein. 

PAYMENT        Full payment is expected with every order, no exceptions.  It takes so much time in customer service, billing and people not paying there bills promptly, that WE JUST DO NOT BILL and keep our low prices. All checks must be payable in United States funds. Orders in excess of  $150.00 require payment by cashiers check or money order. Orders under $150.00 may be paid by personal check.  All prices are subject to change without notice.

SHIPPING          EVERY ORDER is shipped U.S. Priority Mail or UPS our choice, so EVERY ORDER pays $7.00 minimum boxing, shipping, and handling PER ORDER,  not per individual garment or item.  All orders costing more than $7.00 to ship will be billed for the extra amount.  *** Special shipping/rush shipping is extra and paid by the customer over and above the $7.00 standard order fee.

We ship each order with a Delivery Confirmation for tracking.  Our experience is that the U.S. Post Office is normally very reliable, if you have a history of past problems or desire insurance on your order please add $3.00 for insurance.  Otherwise our U.S. Post Office's shipping receipt shall be final proof that we have completed and delivered your order.  We can not be responsible for the Post Office's errors, damage or lost once the order is mailed.  Therefore we make the insurance option available to you, if you don't want to trust the USPO.

STANDARD CUT SIZES        When ordering Standard Cut Size Prices (this is labor only) therefore besides for fabric you must supply all the required NOTIONS: of thread, elastic, bias tape, etc., shoulder pads and lace if offered on your selection and desired, a regular zipper or buttons if required, call or E-mail for the length or number if not listed.  Notions are normally included with Professionally CUSTOM FITTED price. Thank you for your understanding.  PLEASE understand those paying Standard Cut Size Prices do not received CUSTOM FITTED SERVICES.
