To make it as easy as possible for you to buy a dress, I've introduced two new things to the eternal magpie shop.
The first is Reservations! So if you see a one-off fabric that you like, but you don't want to risk it selling out before pay day, you can send me an email and I'll pop it into the Reservations section for you. It will sit there happily for thirty days, and you can snap it up any time you like.
If thirty days isn't quite long enough, or if you'd prefer to pay for your dress in smaller amounts, I'm now offering Payment Plans too! Again, send me an email to tell me which dress you'd like, and I'll pop it into the Reservations section with a payment plan attached. Payments will typically be divided into five instalments - four for the dress itself, and the final one for the cost of shipping. There is a small non-refundable fee of £5 for this option - you don't pay any extra for the dress, but if you need a refund for any reason, I will retain £5 to cover my additional transaction fees for accepting multiple payments instead of just one.
I won't make the dress until all of the payments have been completed, so you will have to wait a little while with this option. However, there's no specific schedule - as long as I've received all of the instalments within 150 days of the initial payment, you can be as fast or as slow as you like with the rest.
There's a new page containing all of the small print for Reservations and Payment Plans, just to make sure you're happy with how it's all going to work. I hope this makes it nice and easy for you to buy the dress you want!
(Sorry. I can't quite take the word "layaway" seriously. It's not a word we really use in the UK... and it always reminds me of the 1970s kids' tv show "Playaway", with its truly TERRIBLE jokes. Also, I'm sure at the time I had absolutely no idea who Jeremy Irons was! Maybe he wasn't famous yet? Oh dear, I'm showing my age now...)
