frank & biscuit – terms and conditions
frank & biscuit provides a couture dressmaking service creating custom garments to your instructions. By accepting these terms and conditions you are contracting with f&b for my services. The initial consultation is free of charge and there is no obligation on you to commission any work.
Work will commence on your garment(s) following receipt of your deposit payment. Payment of the deposit confirms your acceptance of these terms and conditions. A non-refundable deposit of 40% is required to secure your order.
Information made available to me at the time of quotation is the sole basis for the creation of the quote. Quotations are subject to change if there are any errors or omissions in this information. Later changes to your instructions (due to a change of style or a change of measurements) may require extra work and so incur additional charges.
Deadlines should be discussed at the initial consultation stage.
Agreed deadlines are dependent on speed of decision making and making yourself available for fittings. f&b shall not be liable for any default due to any act of God or other event beyond my reasonable control. Acceptance of urgent work is at my discretion, and is undertaken on a best endeavours basis. Such work may attract a premium charge.
A complete set of measurements will be taken at the time of order and garment(s) will be made according to these.
Where a weight loss plan, pregnancy or illness/recovery is a factor, please let me know so that we may plan your garment(s) appropriately. Major alterations to a garment due to weight loss or gain will incur extra work which will be charged accordingly.
Alterations due to a changing of mind about what undergarments or shoes to wear will only be carried out if reasonably practicable, and will be charged accordingly.
frank & biscuit will endeavour to be as flexible as possible when making fittings appointments. Clients are required to wear appropriate underwear/shoes to fitting appointments.
Appointments may last up to an hour from the appointment time. Most fittings take under 30 minutes.
Please telephone/message in advance to cancel appointments; missed or late appointments may incur extra charges.
frank & biscuit prefer to purchase all materials. I have preferred sources, where I know the quality of all goods will be fit for the intended purpose. Where materials are supplied by the client, it is their responsibility to ensure that they are fit for the intended purpose. f &b reserves the right to refuse to work with unsuitable materials.
