    When I ordered a dress it saying 6-8 weeks but that includes ordering fabrics etc. I made a skirt and it took me about 8 hours. Depends on the complexity of the dress. A simple shift wouldn't take too long but an elaborate gown might!

    Thanks very much! Would be more for a evening midi dress with a criss cross back and hand printed so some complex parts
