Subject: Has anyone ever insisted on having a mock up bodice fitting. I have a client who I know I will not be able to fit without seeing her in person and do not want to make the dress without having first seen her. Shipping a bodice would not work either as the figure is a challenging one.I've always been able to make things work long distance but no my limitations.

If I can't see her in person can I refuse to make the dress?

I always make a mock-up, but I usually get a chance to measure in person. However, when I cannot do it myself, I send off a bodice made of cotton and ask the client to take it in where needed. They can use pins, needles, even staples. But of course you can refuse, if you feel uncomfortable. (NT)So far it has worked for meWednesday, September 26, 02:51:25pm

I have used Skype for fittings after the customer has received the mock bodice. It's not the best but it helps. I've also had them take pictures of the mock bodice on and then have them email them to me. (NT)kmFriday, September 28, 06:53:44am

You can always refuse to make a dress, it's entirely up to you! That said, a mockup (or three for difficult figures) with pictures and/or skype works pretty well for long distance fittings. You'll never get a 100% perfect fit, but you can still get very nice results with patience and good communication. (NT):)Saturday, September 29, 09:27:35pm
