Creating a custom coat or head to toe look is an collaborative artistic process that takes a considerable investment of time and resources.  People have busy lives and events sneak up fast so often a lot of interest churns up right before an event or festival when it is too late to create the most fantastical piece from your imagination. 

Let's plan ahead this year to lighten the financial and time stresses to do the best work possible!  Start the process for your 2018 festival or holiday coat by Valentine's Day to participate in Lily Guilder's layaway program. Read the process and terms below and click the link to make your first payment to reserve your place in the Custom Order queue.
