If you feel that your perfect dress isn’t available off the rack, we can help! Start by scheduling an initial consultation appointment with one of our experienced seamstresses. Bring inspirational photos, a Pinterest board, sketches, fabric swatches, or accessories to help spark collaborative thoughts and ideas. Consider what elements have inspired you to embark on the custom journey. Your input on design, fabrics and other details guides us to the final dress. We then translate your vision into a sketch designed just for you.
At your fitting appointments we will be fitting a muslin or “toile” version of your gown to your body. You may have a few appointments in the muslin to get it fitted just right before the gown is assembled in your chosen fabric. This phase lets you see the silhouette and how the design works on your body, and we will make all final decisions regarding fabric, details and ornamentation. Throughout your 4-7 fittings, you’ll see more and more of your gown and vision coming to life!
Due to the intensity of time, labor, and design expertise, the starting price of custom gowns is $3,000, exclusive of materials. You can expect the duration of the entire process to be three or four months to make your custom gown, though appointment availability varies seasonally. We recommend securing your place as early as possible.
