    So I'm starting to doubt buying my dresses from China.. It's not the quality that I'm concerned about, but more so the customs charge! I've emailed 'she who can't be named' to see if she can make the dresses for me and she has quoted me £78 per dress which includes postage.. Chuffed with that quote as it is £30-£40 cheaper than the originals, and no customs charge - yippee!

    Has anyone on here had anything made by her before? If so, could you share any pictures/reviews with me please? :)

    I have searched other threads and have found a few posts regarding her work, but thought it would be much easier if I was able to view everything in one place (will probably be useful for other users in the future as well) xx

    I really want to see photos and reviews about her work! :D I'm planning to get my dress made by her and would love to see her work :) About my bridesmaids dresses, I'm so confused lol Have 7 bridesmaids (didn't want 7, but I can't exclude anyone) and they have different body shapes and they live faaaaaaaaaaaaaar away from each other, and I have to find a dress style that fits all of them... hum, it's not gonna be easy.

    I want to see her work :D

    Is there just one lady who runs this or are there several people?

    Having problems with emails at the moment. She/they sent me some swatches so I could see the colours, I asked if they had some slightly different shades. She/they asked me the numbers of the colours they had sent so I told them.. now they have asked me again even though I've already provided this info. I've found the perfect colours on the website and FB page.

    Flossie as far as I know its just the one lady that runs the UK side of the business.
    When I asked for mint green swatches I was sent 1, it wasn't the colour I was after so she sent 2 more which again weren't the right colour!!
    The swatches are so tiny too, they couldn't get any smaller if they tried lol.
    I still really want to order the bridesmaid dresses from her as she hasn't had 1 bad review (well I haven't found any) so need to decide if I'm willing to change the colour slightly.

    She has a bad memory then, or she's really bad at reading over email trails before replying! It annoyed me a little bit, but I think she is my best chance of getting the dresses I want without ordering from China.. and at the price I want!! The swatches are tiny but I guess it's better than nothing - good that she doesn't charge for them either, and they arrived the day after I requested them which I was really pleased with x

    Struggling with her a bit :-/ she sent me the 4 colour samples as requested, really quickly, which I was really pleased with. However I wasn't happy with the shades of pink and blue sent - the pink was way too light compared to the other colours and the blue looked too dusky, instead of pastel. I asked her to send me some more blues and pinks - she sent me a pink which was then far too bright and a blue which is definitely more teal than baby/pastel blue... !

    I've asked her if she has any photos of dresses made up in the blues and pinks she sent so I can get a better of idea rather than trying to look at a tiny swatch, but she hasn't.. Think I might have to give up on her which is a shame because she would have done them for fab prices. :-/

    I've found her really blunt with her emails as well. I don't feel as if she really wants my custom!

    She should have a way for us to visit her. It's too weird to just order something online, totally blind. Or at least, a way for us to call her and speak propoerly.

    Hi Flossie, I know this doesn't sound conventional, but could you find the colour sample you like, and maybe send it to her? I know it sounds the wrong way round, but was just a wacky idea lol x

    Thanks for the suggestion but tbh I can't really be bothered with the hassle lol. I have already sent her photos of the shade I want and she can't seem to match it :/ I think I'm going to look elsewhere for the time being.

    I'm sure it will be fine Camila! From what I've seen on FB, she has great reviews. Just a shame it's not working out for me :-(

    For those of you who are interested in buying dresses from China to save money but are worried about the customs charge, I have come across a company that are based in the UK but order their stock from China, so you benefit from the great prices but don't have to worry about any customs charges! You can order online, choose from a range of colours and submit your own measurements. They also have a showroom in London so you can go and physically try them on before you buy :-) if anyone wants the link just let me know xx

    You might be better off looking around high street stores to find dresses in that price bracket. The cheapest 'proper' bridesmaids dresses I have found are between £70-£80 x
