Your Questions answered


All garments are cut generous in size, in keeping with the period.    Order your normal UK shop size, or email me with your body measurements, height, chest and waist. 

Waist measurements must be taken high, around the widest part of your stomach.  Just above your belly button.

Payment: For your security we use Pay-Pal, cheques, payable to D. Barras or contact, via email, for bank transfer details, at

For all made to order items, payment is required  before the order is started.

Returns: We operate a full money back policy. Any item returned to us must be made within 14 days and only items in good condition will be accepted. No refund on postage.

Fabric colour and style: All of these garments are individually made, many are made to order, therefore we do not bulk buy any fabrics so colour and pattern may vary. 

I use fabrics made of natural fibers, cotton, wool etc. To try to keep my prices reasonable, I sometimes  buy fabric pieces which do not state their full fiber content. When this occurs I label them 'wool blend'. These fabrics will look and feel like wool. More information on request.

Variations on all items can be made at your request, but may incur additional costs.

Postage.  Please email us before ordering to get a combined postage.

International postage given on request.
