Who do you provide services for?

Does a client need to schedule an appointment? How do the client appointments work?
The first step is to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your inspirations & limitations. You can bring sketches of your own ideas, , photographs of dresses you like, or anything else that inspires you --a beautiful flower, or a photo of a building you love. There is no pressure to commit to a dress after the first meeting. After you decide to have a dress made, I draw 3-10 sketches based on our conversation for "round one" of the design process.
What is the typical turn-around time for a dress?
6 to 8 months from initial consultation.
How often do you receive new dresses?
N/A
Do you provide any guarantees/warrantees of any kind?

Jinjer was so fun and easy to work with. She completely understood my style and what I was envisioning for my dress. She was full of great ideas and suggestions, as I had only the general idea of a pattern, and needed some creative guidance and feedback. I had lots of fun working with her, as we did several fittings along the way to make sure everything was just right. In the end, I got what is literally my dream dress (and something I can wear again and again), for a fraction of what most people spend on wedding dresses. I was SO excited when I first tried on the finished dress. I love that it is totally unique. It's simple but has wonderful texture and detail, and it's so comfortable to wear. There was no tugging/adjusting/fidgeting with my dress throughout the day, because it was literally made to fit me:) I got so many compliments throughout the day (I know, I know, that's what people do to brides, but people were genuinely admiring the design and workmanship of the dress, and really loving the fit and the details). This was my first experience with a custom piece of clothing, and I really couldn't be happier. Thank you SO much, Jinjer!

Krista,

Thank you so much for your review. I'm glad to hear that you felt comfortable and natural in your dress--that's my goal! Congratulations again on your marriage. Enjoy 5th grade with your wonderful bunch of students. Please say hello for me when you see them.

Be well,

Jinjer was really interested in giving me exactly what I wanted and also making sure it would look its best on my body. She is the best for customized dresses, why would you even consider buying a dress that's not made 100% for you for such an important day?

Asarum designs created a dress pattern for me. Jinjer was patient and available during the many month process of deciding on a pattern, materials, etc etc. I ended up with a beautiful and unique dress.

Jinjer was wonderful! She gave me the dress of my dreams and I felt like I was floating on a cloud on the day of my wedding. She was incredibly responsive and worked through all of the stumbling blocks of my trying to communicate when I didn't know exactly what I wanted or couldn't articulate why I didn't like something. She did all of this while pregnant! You couldn't ask for a more creative and caring person to make your dress. I kept all of the sketches she made for the dress and am going to frame them and put them on my walls, because what she does it art.
