hannabee : That’s hard to answer. It’s certainly nicer quality, you just have to decide if it’s worth it for your budget. I found the premium level (normal level) to be on par or better than some of the other popular shops people like (Linda’s shop, Shop 2.0 Anty’s shop). For me, I wanted the best I could get, so I did designer quality and loved it. However, if you decide to go with the premium route, it’s not like you would notice anything or would be missing anything since you wouldn’t be able to compare with their designer things. If it’s worth it to you to get the best, bite the bullet. If you still want a really great quality dress, premium is fine too.
PrincessPeach13 : If you go to their website, in the “contact” drop down menu, there is a “customer service board” at the bottom of the list of names. That will take you to the trello board. There, you can work directly with James to get your dress made. You start by creating a quotation request.
I love this board because once your dress is started, you can move your project to the tab that says “Pending James Response (list monitered)” anytime you have a question and they will see it and answer it within the same day or maybe a couple days if it’s the weekend/holidays. Other dress places (Linda’s and The Shop 2.0) took WEEKS to ever get back to me (horrible experience).
After they answer your question, they will move it to the tab “Pending Customers’ Response”. It’s all very easy to use, and I love how the Shop uploads progress photos to the board. You can go through other people’s dress orders to see how they’re doing, and see all their progress photos. It’s pretty useful when deciding on a style.
Hope that helps!

Mid Production pictures from The Shop. Honestly, when I first saw the dress i wasn’t a fan of the lace. But I think the colored pins just made everything look excessive. I also realized that the dress I was using as inspiration had champagne lining and not ivory. So I was a bit thrown off when seeing the dress cause I was looking for a more airy effect. They’re looking into the price of revising the internal lining, if it’s too much to do I’ll probably stick with the ivory. Not mad at the work itself, trying to not be super picky during this process. Hope this helps someone. Feel free to share thoughts and opinions.

Wow, this thread has been quiet with the Chinese New Year, but I got pics of my dress today and they’ve done a pretty good job so far. The top is exactly what I want and the ruffled skirt isnt done yet.
I can’t wait to try it on with a petticoat!
Oh yeah, and the inspiration is mostly this dress with a few changes :
