Shop Policies --


Thanks so much for visiting :] The Gussy Sews shop is a collection of pretty, ruffly items that are symbols of dream-catching and inspiration. To read more about my story please CLICK HERE. XO

Each signature Gussy ruffle is unique in that it is sewn freehand. Please note the fabric design, your ruffle, and ruffle placement may vary from the listing photo in order to coordinate with the print on the fabric.


I welcome your PayPal account or debit/credit card.


At this time we are not accepting custom orders.


Items purchased from the winnings of a Gussy Sews shop credit giveaway will ship around 2 weeks after the winner has selected his/her item. Baby blankets are excluded from won shop credit.

Shipping charges may be included in the won shop credit as long as the product(s) price and shipping charge(s) do not exceed the won shop credit amount. Please use as much of your won shop credit as possible because any balance left over is forfeited.

If the product and shipping combined exceed the won shop credit, a PayPal invoice will be issued for the difference. The invoice must be paid before the giveaway item(s) ship.

*Discount codes are not valid on the purchase of baby blankets or gift certificates. Discount codes are not valid when making a purchase using a gift certificate.


All Gussy orders are limited to ONE promotion {unless otherwise stated}. Discount codes take precedence over additional sales and/or promotions. We appreciate your understanding.


All ready-to-ship items ship in approximately 7-10 business days via USPS. All made-to-order items ship in approximately 10-15 business days. Thank you in advance for your patience with this.

Looking to place an International order? No problem! Simply select "Everywhere Else" for your country and your order will be processed as normal through PayPal. Please note there is an approximate 15 business day turnaround for shipping your order once it's processed, excluding any transit time frames your country includes.


If an item arrives damaged and you've purchased shipping insurance, I'm happy to work with you on your order. Please understand that once I take your package to the Post Office your package is out of my hands, literally.

Please use the Contact page to share any concerns you have regarding your order.

All sales are final. Any returns/exchanges are approved based on our discretion.


Each Gussy order comes wrapped in clear packaging and sealed with a darling sticker. Please write a note in the "message to seller" section at PayPal checkout if we should exclude the order invoice.


All zipped items, market totes + tote bags may be machine washed inside a wash bag using cold water. Please transfer the wash bag to the dryer and dry on low heat. Lightly steam/iron on the "cotton" setting if need be.

All headbands + camera strap slipcovers should be spot cleaned with a gentle soap, such as Ivory. Do not place our headbands or camera straps inside the washing machine.

All crocheted cowls should be hand washed + line dry. Do not place our cowls inside the washing machine.
