FAQs

What is the Stephanie Davis Signature Collection?

The best of best, crowd-pleasers from years of doing custom work for fashionistas in the 613. These styles are offered in specially selected fabrics and made to order - you choose your own fashion adventure and get what you really want! 


How Do I Place an Order?

When you’re shopping the SDD Signature Collection, click on the sketch to see available fabrics and colours. Because these styles are all made to order, you may not see a photo of the garment in your selected fabric - but you’ll always see a version on a human in fabric of a comparable weight and drape. Simply choose your size, fabric and length/fit (if applicable aka. Petite, Tall) 


Can you make custom alterations?

Yes! Here are the easiest adjustments to make that I won’t charge you extra to do:

  1. Split sizing - example M top with L waist or L waist with XL hip (if you need more than one size difference between waist, hip and/or bust, message me before you place your order)
  2. Shorten sleeve or hem of pant/skirt/dress (please indicate amount to adjust in inches or centimetres)

For more complicated adjustments, please message me in advance and I’ll let you know what I can do and at what cost.


How do I indicate I want custom adjustments on my order?

Add a note to your order explaining in detail what you would like. If anything is unclear, I will contact you. Please be sure to leave a preferred method of contact in the note box!


What does “Sample Sale” mean?

Do you like shopping at Winners? Well, the Sample Sale section is for you!  This is a random assortment of pieces in different fabrics, colours and sizes that need to find their Cinderella. I don’t produce much excess stock, but here you’ll find hidden gems, one-offs and straight up samples from my design process. It’s definitely worth a look! If I stop offering a fabric or make changes to a pattern, you’ll have a chance to grab the original pieces at a reduced price till stock runs out. All Sample Sale items are final sale. Now go snag some deals! Shop the Sample Sale.


What sizes do you carry?

SDD currently only carries sizes XS-XL but I’m looking forward to expanding my size options soon. In the meantime, you can always message me about making an item in XXS or XXL for a small cutting fee. Here is the newly adjusted size chart with a little more room at the waist and bust.



Where are your garments made?

All SDD garments are made in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Very often by me in my workshop.


I love X, if I give you the fabric can you make it for me?

The easy answer is yes. The long answer is contact me and we’ll discuss it! I’ll need to see the fabric to know if it’s really compatible with the style you want made. The cost of the garment will be the same as when you use my stock fabric.


How long before I receive my order?

If you know me, you know I’m a speedy sewist. I will always get to work on your order ASAP and ship it the moment it’s ready, but if I have a lot of orders one day, it could take me a little longer than expected, but I will always ship within 2 weeks.


What are your shipping rates?

All orders are shipped Canada Post with an option to pay extra for quicker shipping

Free Canada-wide standard shipping for orders over $200.

Local delivery is available within the Ottawa area for a flat rate of $5.


Do you accept returns?

Since garments are made to measure, returns are assessed on a case-by-case basis. We can talk it out! Sample Sale items are final sale.
