We do custom accessory orders too!

I am back in the land of the living - I have been a super busy bee of late. Besides working flat out for the past two weeks designing an awesome range of kids clothing for a well known INTERNATIONAL SURFING LEGEND (!) I have also been doing some pretty cool custom accessories in the evenings - even if it's at 10 o'clock at night the creative juices never seem to stop flowing thank goodness! 

Our custom accessories are exactly that! One of a kind, and specifically made to order - usually with a specific date or event in mind. Anybody can place an order with Miss Happ - we post to anywhere in SA, as well as internationally too. Postage for accessories are minimal which always helps! If it is super urgent and you are in SA we can even courier it to you overnight :)

The choices are endless! So if it's off beats colours, or fancy feathers and lace we can make something special for your occasion to perfectly match what you are wearing.

Below is a few of the more fun orders we have done lately...seems we certainly have a colour theme going..might just be because halloween is around the corner ;-) but the little pretties have been for so many different occassions..from weddings and matric balls to halloween parties!

To place an order, you are welcome to email me and we can take it from there:

Till next time!

Hello Sailor! New Sailor inspired corsets by Miss Happ

Been dying to show off our newest sailor corset, so here it is..look out for the cute Miss TK wearing hers on our Top Billing photoshoot - to be aired on Oct, 4th, SABC 3!
Our corset has a very nautical flavour - boned for comfort and support this little number will sure turn heads on any ship! Neck has comfortable halter ties for added support.

Fabric is made from 100% cotton and is lined is a contrast red/white stripe for that little touch of naughtiness!

Trimmed in contrasting white satin bias piping to accentuate those curves, it also has wide white stripes and super cute satin (detachable) bows with red anchors that add that special touch. Back is tied with red cord and is adjustable.
To order yours, please go to our online store:
Till next time!


Pretty Peacock Accessories fit for a wedding!

Only getting round to posting pics of the really pretty Peacock hair accessories I custom made for a bridal party last week end; mother-of-the-bride, maid-of-honour and bridesmaid all have matching accessories, a clip, brooch and an alice band! was super happy with the way they came out - especially so because i have never made anything with feathers, or as complicated at the alice band.

I had great clients who knew exactly what they wanted which always helps. The alice band was based on one that Jessica alba was actually seen wearing out one day. Upon investigation there are so many awesome variations that have been made so my job was already half way done.

 My clients brought me all the raw materials; feathers, diamante's, and alice band, I only had to provided the brooch back and the special flat pin bobby clip for the single hair clip which also saved time and effort. Peacock feathers can be very expensive, so it worked out better that the client bought them as it works out cheaper for them!!

I have taken step by step pics so that you too can make your own pretties..will blog about it next this space!

Till next time!

Miss Happ now offers Custom Orders!

We understand it can be difficult to buy a fabulous little number when you can't fit into limited sizes, so we hope that this service is the answer to your dream wardrobe!
With the increased interest in custom made garments from many of our client,  we at Miss Happ have decided to offer a made-to-measure, custom order service for our Cape Town clients on all existing styles (excl end of range/discontinued styles).

We generally offer standerd retail sizes in our Miss Happ range, but this new service is the perfect option for the girl who battles to find a garment that she likes, so if you are, for instance, blessed in the chest department, but are on the short side we can now taylor make your garment for you, so that it fits like a glove, and doesn't hang to your ankles!

This way you will have a garment that you love, and that's fit's you like a glove. You will also then have your own custom pattern in the style you love, making it easier to re-order you favourite dress at time in a different fabric, pattern or colour, or anything you like for your special occasions, or just something a little different for a day out with the girls!

There is a once off Payment that covers your custom pattern (per style) and one fitting as well as the mock-up sample for you to fit - we may need make your fit sample in cheap fabric first as a prototype, although the final garment will be in your desired fabric/s.

What is the cost for a custom order?

Besides the actual garment price (regular retail price) there is an additional ONCE OFF FEE of R390.00
This is for:
  • your own pattern
  • one mock-up garment (prototype/first fit garment))
  • one fitting
What do you need to do first?

You will need to make an appointment to come and see us so that we can discuss what you want, as well as take your measurements. If we have existing garments for you to try on this is when we will do it - sometimes this is easier when adjusting patterns to fit you.

To set up an appointment, you can contact Mandy:
  • Office (Mon-Fri, 9 - 6pm) 021 557 9596
  • e-mail:
  • Please note we cannot accept any returns as these garments are made especially for you - no two bodies are the same!
  • For now, this service is only available for our Cape Town clients
  • All appointments are generally made Monday to Friday, although we can arrange a later evening appointment for you during the week if need be - we understand it is hard when we all have full time jobs! 
If there are any questions, please do give us a tinkle!
