Love It! It's awesomeness in a dress!
Easy to make, got here fast, quality is great. Size more like a 12 than a 14 but the measurements were all there to see. I'm loving it! I'll be making another soon!!
What parts of this personalised skater dress can I design?
Your Custom Skater Dress is made from 2 parts - the front and back. You can upload your design; a photo, a montage, a print, and illustration etc, onto the entire front and back panel of this designer dress. The technician team will then print it and cut and sew the dress by hand. You can also design an internal label, which is perfect to add an extra element of personalisation.
Which is the best fabric option?
We have selected 2 of the custom fabrics to make this exclusive dress. Choose from Chain Jersey fabric or Crushed Velour. The choice is really yours when it comes to which material to use, as they both have their own unique qualities, which lends themselves perfectly to the dress. Crushed Velour gives a sexier and more textured finish, while the Chain Jersey is very stretchy with a characteristic "chain" effect from the pique knit.
How long will it take for my dress to be made?
You might think that a handmade, designer dress would take days or even weeks to complete. Not so at Contrado. The specialist team of designers, printers and sewers work together to ensure all orders are printed and handmade quickly, carefully and efficiently. Your dress takes between 2-3 days to complete and fast in delivery.

Skater Dress Fitting Details

174cm (5' 8")
What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
How will my image scale?
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What is gsm?
Grams per square meter (gsm) is the unit of measurement used to measure the weight of a paper or fabric. This measurement uses the weight of one square metre (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a fabric. We classify fabrics of 10-100gsm as light (fabrics for summer, fine silk), fabrics of 101-249gsm as medium (most fabrics for clothing) and fabrics of more than 250gsm as thick (upholstery and other specialised fabrics).
What is the bleed area?
When creating your product, it is important to make sure that your image is a little wider than the size needed. In printing, the bleed area allows you to obtain a borderless print. We would advise filling the blead areas, maked with a red checkered area, to ensure you don't end up with white edges. You should make sure that you do not put important details within the bleed area as these will quite likely be lost.
What is crocking and why might it occur?
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colours are used. It can be minimised by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Why do my colours appear lighter on organic fabrics?
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Can you perfectly join two separately printed panels?
We always try to provide the utmost precision in printing and manufacturing. However, due to unavoidable stretching or movement of the fabric at the time of sewing, we can not guarantee a perfect alignment of the pattern on the seams of the garment. Generally we are accurate to 2-3mm, which is sufficient for most reasons but can pose minor problems with patterns or geometric designs.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Is it possible to print your own label?
Most of our clothing is made with a label space. You can print your label and add information about your brand. If you want to sew your own labels, we offer customizable labels of different sizes.
Can I print on both sides of the fabric?
We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.
Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them like you do with the normal fabric labels?
At the moment no, our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now this is the best choice. The labels are all cut the same way. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into label format.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
Why are there slight colour differences between my orders?
We work at improving our colour profiles all the time. Though rare it may happen that from one print run to another, and there could be slight colour differences, this is normal and part of the process when we are constantly improving. It is extremely unlikely that there will be a huge difference (like orange instead of red for example). Please bear in mind such colour variations can be intensified from fabric to fabric due to the varying grains and textures of the fabric; natural fabrics tend to have more muted colours than their poly alternatives. This is due to the construction of the materials as well as the print methods that have to be altered slightly for more delicate, natural textiles.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
