For fittings clients have the options of a virtual fitting or they can come to our fashion house for a special Vermont experience.
Tara Lynn will ship your garment with instructions and a pin cushion. We will schedule you for a phone fitting in which you will email us photos of you in your dress/suit. If needed we can work with your local tailor during this process. Tara Lynn will direct you and the tailor where the garment needs to be pinned or taken out.
