Bespoke Services

Here at Shibumi we pride ourselves in being able to offer women's sizes 6 to 26 and men's sizes 34 to 56 as standard. However, if a standard size does not work for you we are able to provide you with a few solutions. 
We can create any of our garments fully bespoke to your measurements from an extra £300; for this you would need to visit us at our Showroom in Gloucestershire to have a toile made and then for additional fittings with our dressmaker, which are all included in the price. 
We also offer a 'made to measure' service for £200. For this, we make the garment to your measurements rather than ordering a standard size. Any additional adjustments would be subject to an alterations fee. For this, you would need to make an appointment to visit us, or provide your measurements. 
We are able to do small tweaks to sizes at a charge of £35 per adjustment. For example: longer sleeves, shorter length, narrower shoulders. Again, for this we would need to see you here, or have your measurements provided. 
Alternatively we have a fabulous dressmaker Sue with us here in Gloucestershire, who is able to provide a full alterations service. She can alter any of our dresses or jackets to fit your needs, and this can be done as a prior arrangement if you visit the Showroom or you are welcome to order online and then call us for an appointment if you find you would like something altered. Prices for alterations will vary depending on the work required, please contact us.  
Sue will be offering a range of services as follows:
  • Alterations to your existing Shibumi pieces or for new orders that need small tweaks.
  • Bespoke service: if a standard size dress is not right for you, Sue can make you a fully made to measure dress in our style that will fit you perfectly. You may need a few visits to us for this service as a mock up and a second fitting may be needed.
  • Couture service: you can work with Sue to create a design of your choosing in one of our fabrics, she is amazingly talented and can draft a pattern from a drawing or a photo so the possibilities are endless!
  • Copying: If you have a garment in your wardrobe that you’d like reimagined in a Shibumi fabric, we can do this for you! Simply send the garment to us, or bring it during an appointment and we can produce a copy for you in a Shibumi fabric.

 Please note, for any bespoke piece made where you provide the measurements to us yourself, we cannot be held responsible if the garment does not fit. For the best results, please make an appointment to see us in our Showroom.
