Made-to-Order FAQ

How long will my made-to-order item take to ship?

We do not hold stock and every piece is hand-made by our makers. Your piece will generally be ready within 4-6 weeks from ordering. This may change depending on the number of orders and complexity of the customisations.

Please refer to the product description section for the estimated lead time. You will be kept updated on the delivery date and progress of your order. Once your made-to-order piece has been shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking information.

How can I tell what size I am?

Sizing varies between our items, so we recommend using these tools to better determine your ideal size:

-The Product Measurements and Fit Guide can be found on every product page by selecting the Product Measurements and Fit tab. Measurements are provided in centimetres, while the garment is laying flat. Some measurements (i.e. waist, chest, etc.) have already been doubled, factoring in the full circumference. You can compare these measurements to similar pieces you already own.

-Additional style and fit details are included in the Details tab on each product page.

Don’t worry if you do not fall into the standard size range. We are able to offer simple customisations outside the size range. Simply leave your measurements at the ‘Notes’ section when checking out, or drop us an email at after placing your order. Please include your order number and body measurements in the email.

What kind of customisations do you offer?

We are able to accommodate simple customisations if you do not fall into the standard size range, or would like a piece tailored to your styling preference. Some customisations include:

-Top, bottom and dress lengths tailored to your height

-Creating a piece outside of our size range, for example 2XS or 3XL, etc.

-Tailoring the length of sleeves

-Mixing certain styling elements

-Adding/ removing certain functional details

Simply refer to the Customisation Menu on the product page for a full list of customisations available for the particular product.

How do I place an order with customisation?

Simply choose the preferred customisation option and leave your measurements or customisations you require in the ‘Notes’ section at checkout.

Easiest go-to for every occasion!

Proud owner of 3 Lumen dress; Black, Bone, and Olive! The linen is extremely lightweight and soft on skin, not scratchy at all and zero break-in required. It gives me enough of a preppy look with full-button up at the office on Fridays, and then transitioning to casual, relax look with a couple of button-downs after work.

Love that an individual dress can give me multiple options for various occasions.

Love this dress!

I got the Lumen shirt dress in pacific blue to start and fell in love - the linen fabric is a beautiful colour and it's so light and breezy with great side slits - perfect for Singapore's tropical weather! Plus each time you wear this dress, you feel 'stylish' - button up or down, with or without belt, it can be casual or dressier - you have so many options! So glad that Alicia decided to offer it in more colours and am now the happy owner of the olive as well :)
