The above prices do not include fabric and findings, it is the construction fee only.
With many custom items, I can give you an educated guess of how long it will take to construct and an approximate price.  This is only an estimate.  I work on an hourly basis that is fair for the services I provide.  I do not provide fabrics but will be happy to shop with you if you are not comfortable in a fabric store.  We create a muslin  sample before cutting into your fashion fabrics, and require at least three fittings for a custom couture garment sometimes more.  On average a garment can take 6-12 weeks to create depending on the time of year and complexity of your garment.  I have created garments in as little as two weeks, but these are few and far between and I rely on  basic patterns that I know already fit my regular clients.  Do not wait until the last minute with a custom item.  I ask for my clients to pay in three installments; at the first measurement fitting, at the fashion garment fitting, and at final pick-up of your garment.  Some clients are happy to pay more at their first few fittings, however I will not know the end balance until the garment is complete.  We normally let clients walk-in, but due to the nature of custom garments, taking a little extra time and care, I do appreciate  a phone call letting me know when you will be in. Custom Items take time and care to create but the end result is fabulous. Some items can take 2-3 months during our busy season, if you are not in a hurry it is much appreciated.Some hand beaded gowns can take as long as 6 months to create, so please plan ahead.
