The Process:

Consultation 1: A quick phone or in-person consultation. I would love to meet with you over a cup of coffee or tea and some macaroons to discuss what it is you are looking for. From the type of garment (dress, blouse, skirt, etc) to colors, textures, and silhouettes. It is best to bring photos or accessories that spark inspiration to the creating of your garment. If possible, measurements are taken at the consultation and then Amal is off to the drawing board! 

Consultation 2: Amal will present you with five original design sketches, fabric swatches and other conceptual items to start the process of the creating the garment of your dreams. You get to pick the sketch and materials that match your vision. If you can't decide, don't worry, that's why I'm here! I'll work with you until we get it right! 

Muslin draft: A test garment is made in muslin (a light weight cotton), before the garment is made in the final fabric. Depending on complexity of design, a fitting of the muslin may be needed. 

First Fitting: The first fitting of the garment is done to insure the perfect fit, hem length, and any other alterations needed to your liking. 

Final Fitting: One more fitting is conducted for good measure. If everything is completed to you satisfaction, your perfectly tailored garment is ready for you to take home!
