Made to Measure Costume Production Times

The Turkish Emporium Ltd offers a complete bespoke tailoring service for made to measure professional belly dance costumes. Please note that our sized costumes are not mass produced in a factory, they are hand made by our highly skilled team of costumiers. Like all works of art, our costumes are painstakingly hand-stitched over several days, and for this reason we ask all of our customers to exercise patience during this period. Costume production times range from around 10 days for the less embellished outfits up to four to six weeks for the more elaborate professional costumes. If you have a particular deadline for delivery please let us know after you have placed your order and we will try our best to get your order to you in time.
