How can I be sure what colour I am ordering and do all your childrens clothes have covered buttons?
It is very difficult to accurately portray the colour of fabric online. Lychgate will send up to two free swatches of fabric on request. We urge all customers to check our Fabric Gallery page. Please review the images at the weblinks we provide for our fabric supplier's website before ordering. Once an order has been placed in a particular colour Lychgate cannot provide a refund. So we urge customers to request swatches for certainty
Only clothes for children age 6 and above have covered buttons. For health and safety reasons we use uncovered buttons for children age 0 - 5 years. We recommend that you do not buy garments for ages 6 and above for children younger than age 6.

The bespoke design process is a collaboration between the designer and the bride. This results in a fabulous, high-quality custom made bridal gown. All our bridal gowns are designed to be worn with appropriate supportive underwear. Brides must commit to attending between 3 and 6 fittings during time periods specified by the designer. Brides must purchase and wear appropriate underwear for those fittings. To obtain the best result brides should maintain a stable weight during the process.
We aim to be clear about the commitment involved to ensure the desired outcome
Can I bring friends and family to a bespoke fitting and how many people?
Design consultations and fittings usually last between 45 and 90 minutes. We know that children get bored so we try to work as quickly as possible. However, as we use fine fabrics we ask that there is no food, drink or sweets in the workshop
