Custom Clothes- More Sustainable, But Patience is Required

BIzzy Bee has convinced you that custom clothes are more sustainable than fast fashion and you've decided to add some custom pieces to your wardrobe. yes? How long will it take? Let's walk through an example timeline:


  1. If needed, we'll meet for 30 minutes or more, design your garment together, and decide on fabrics.

  2. The custom fabric takes about 2 weeks to come in, longer if we're ordering around a holiday. Our print shop prints to order, another key to being eco-friendly, there's no extra run of a fabric print that may end up in a landfill, but this means that there isn't fabric sitting around a warehouse that just needs to be shipped.

  3. Prepping the fabric takes a day or two. Everything gets pre-washed and pre-shrunk, this prevents dyes from running and fabric from shrinking on you!

  4. Cutting and sewing, depending on the complexity and how much is in the queue, can take 1-3 days.



Overall, it can take upwards of a month to get something custom, and for things like family Christmas, Easter, or complete photo looks 6-8 weeks are needed. If you need something faster, I do keep a small inventory of some favorite fabrics on hand, and we can eliminate that time waiting for printing and shipping.
