Can I customize my Doloris Petunia dress?

Doloris Petunia dress customizations such as size, color, skirt & sleeve length are noted, when available, on each product description page.

How long does it take for a Doloris Petunia dress to be made?

We hand stitch, bead & finish each of our made-to-order dresses.

We recommend that you leave 2-3 weeks prior to the event date, in case you choose to make any alterations.

Is it possible to alter a Doloris Petunia Dress?

Every child’s body is different, therefore,  we encourage you to measure your child prior to placing your order to ensure that you are selecting the size that is best for your child's measurements. We make allowances in fabric for alterations & growth, so it is easy for alterations to be made. If you have concerns about sizing, we highly recommend ordering a Doloris Petunia Sizer to ensure your dress arrives as you'd like it to fit. The cost of a sizer will be credited to your final order.
