Sew Trendy® Processing & Shipping
PROCESSING = TIME REQUIRED TO MAKE YOUR ITEM FOR YOU | SHIPPING = ESTIMATE OF TIME REQUIRED TO SHIP YOUR ITEM
It is important to note that Processing Time and Shipping Time are two very different things.
You will find different processing times in our store, depending on the item, and the amount of time it takes for us to make it for you. Our processing times vary from 7 business days to 12 weeks. Some of our items offer a rush processing option, which will take the item down to a 7 business day processing, with a fee. Please see more information on Rush Processing below.
We have many items marked Ready To Ship, or RTS. This means these items are already made and do not need processing time. They will leave our warehouse and ship out to the buyer within 1-3 business days of purchase.
With the Rush Processing option, you can pay a fee to have your item made faster, if you are soon approaching your deadline. The processing time is adjusted down to 7 business days, and covers the cost of the seamstress to complete the item weeks ahead of schedule. This is in no way related to Shipping or Rush Shipping...only Processing of the item. Shipping costs are in addition to the rush processing fee. Please note that holidays are not included in the 7 business days as our office and production staff are off to be with their families, and the company will be closed. Please plan accordingly! Rush processing fees are non-refundable.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON PROCESSING/SHIPPING
If you are ordering RTS (ready to ship) AND Standard or Rush processing items in the same order, all items will ship together when the made to order gowns are complete unless requested otherwise. Additional shipping charges may apply if you choose to have RTS items shipped separately. Please contact us with any questions at email@example.com .

Once your package has left our facility, it is out of our hands and in the hands of the carrier. Unfortunately we do not have control over what the carrier does with your package. All claims for packages must go through the carrier chosen during checkout. Please see below for information on late packages.
CUSTOMS • INTERNATIONAL ORDERS
In some cases, there will be VAT or other taxes, customs duties or fees levied by your destination country. Additional charges for taxes or customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs and taxation policies vary widely from country to country. You should contact your local customs office for further information. **When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.**
We are unable to list items as a gift, or write an amount lower than the actual product price on customs forms as it is illegal. If you wish to have the boxes broken up into multiple shipments to avoid customs fees, additional charges will apply.
