During the initial consultation the Client's vision and preferences are discussed as well as the anticipated quote of the garment(s). Sew and Reap will exchange and modify ideas until a final design is agreed upon. During this phase, the Client and Sew and Reap cover rough fashion sketches, garment styles, fabrics, notions, color, embellishments, and silhouette as well as fittings, alterations, and any further design details. These will be agreed upon by both parties (Client and Sew and Reap) before the production of any design. A consultation is required for all custom concepts.

If the Client desires to obtain services outside of Sew and Reap for alterations or adjustments, the Client is responsible for those costs.
Designing and constructing custom garments is a collaborative process that sometimes requires minor changes along the way. Please let us know of any changes as early as possible so that we may attempt to accommodate you. If no concerns are addressed prior to the purchase date of materials, which is generally 1-3 days after the initial payment is made, no changes can be made without the Client incurring additional fees. Accommodations may be possible at the discretion of Sew and Reap. The Client understands that he/she is responsible for the payment of the garment(s) and any materials to complete garment(s). The Client also assumes responsibility of timely payments. If extra materials are needed to complete the garment(s) the Client is responsible for payment of those materials. The Client understands that there shall be no changes to fabric once it has been purchased or once it has been cut. Any changes to the initial design or fabric, will result in additional fees and must be approved by Sew and Reap.
