Frequently Asked Questions
- Can Kat King Couture create a custom material for me?

- Can Kat King Couture create custom appliques based on my design?
Yes, we can create custom appliques based on your design and specifications. Minimum order amount is 3 appliques and takes 6 to 8 weeks to create.
**If you are a bride or a designer wanting a custom applique and you do not need 3 appliques, we suggest modifying one of our available appliques to meet the style you are looking for. This will help save you time and significantly reduce your cost. All of our appliques can be modified to a certain extent. This includes adding or removing beading, adjusting the neckline from a plunge to a straight across or event a sweetheart, high neck, etc. Please contact our design team for specific custom modifications and ideas.
- Can I modify the design of an applique?
Yes, all of our appliques can be modified to fit your design. We can change the neckline, add beading or rhinestones, and shorten or lengthen the total length of the applique.
- Can appliques be made into full length dress panels?
Yes, all of the appliques can be made into full length panels measuring approximately 55 inches wide (side to side) by up to 65 inches long (top to bottom).
- Do the fabrics and appliques stretch?
Yes, all of the fabrics and appliques have a nice stretch making them ideal for form fitting dresses and bodice pieces. The base material is a quality industrial tulle that is very sturdy, yet, light and elegant.
- Are the fabrics and appliques made using Swarovski crystals?
No, we do not use Swarovski crystals. We use high quality rhinestone that have an incredible shine. Using Swarovski crystals would significantly increase the cost and price so we have decided to use quality rhinestones that offer the same shine and glamor without the price of Swarovski.
- Are the rhinestones and beading sewn or glued onto the tulle?
All of the rhinestones and beaded embellishments are sewn onto the tulle creating a very durable yet glamorous material or applique.
- Can I use this material to create a veil?
Yes, any of our fabrics can be used to create a stunning, high glam veil. The rhinestone embellished pieces are heavier so we suggest using these for cape veils that will be securely attach or a shorter head veil to eliminate the risk of the veil pulling while you walk down the isle or graciously walk around greeting your guests. For church and cathedral length veils we suggest using a lighter stone such as sequins and beading. Contact our design team to discuss custom options.
