The Process

Woman working on a dress

Whether you choose to have a custom gown made, a heirloom gown redesigned, or your wedding gown altered or restyled, our goal is to create your dream dress.

Custom Gowns

Your initial consultation will consist of you providing us with your vision of the gown you wish for us to create for you – supported by photos, sketches, actual dresses, etc. to ensure we are on the same page. We will then discuss fabric choices and give you an estimate and a timeline. From there, we will set up a series of fittings – at least 3 – to accommodate the most perfect fit. Your first fitting will include a muslin mock-up – on which we will make the proper corrections before transferring to your a actual fabric. Fittings will continue until your dress is complete.

Heirloom Gowns

You will bring your heirloom gown to the initial consultation – where we will review the condition of the dress and discuss the changes you want or need incorporated into the dress in order to make it perfect for your special day. If necessary, we can replace parts or pieces of the dress to make it fit you. We can also try to match laces and fabrics as close as possible to the original dress. You will have a series of fittings which will all be done on the original dress – unless there is a major restyle that requires a muslin mock-up.

Bridal Alterations/Restyle

Our expertise in making wedding gowns puts us in a unique position to offer you the best in bridal alterations! We can alter any wedding gown from any store, including those purchased online. You will bring your dress to your initial consultation where we will discuss the fit and any changes you would like. You will also need to bring the shoes and any foundation garments you plan to wear on that day. We will schedule a series of fittings based on the work you need done.
