Lesbian Wedding Suit Gallery (pt1)

Lesbian Wedding TuxedoWe make suits for hundreds of lesbian weddings every year.

Each of them is a awesome event and an amazing chance for us to show off our best tailoring techniques.

The pics show one of our favorite suits of 2014.

This tux was made from a soft crepe.

Crepe has a gorgeous “vintage” look with a very subtle matte/sheen.  The texture of the fabric is somewhat “pebbled” rather than smooth.  The French pancakes are actually named for the fabric.

This fabric contrasts beautifully with the ultra smooth face of the “blush” satin we used for the lapels, pockets, and tuxedo stripe.

For the style, we chose a shawl collar style.  This rounded collar is one of the classic menswear details and is found extensively on classic tuxedos.  But here, it takes on a more feminine appearance and keeps the look from feeling harsh.Lesbian Wedding Tuxedos

The pants are classic tapered leg tuxedo pants and feature a traditional tuxedo stripe.

We make custom suits for women all across the world each year—-most of our suits are for ladies who are not able to make the trip to come in for a fitting in person here in our studio in Denver Colorado.

To get the best fit, we use our muslin fitting method—-where we actually mail you a mock-up of the whole suit to try on before cutting the actual suit.

So if you are planning a wedding, contact us (superhero@vigilantelabs.com) and let us sketch something for you!

Women’s Formalwear on the Runway!

We just completed one of the most fabulous runway shows we have ever put on.

For this show, we focused on our women’s formalwear collections—-which is what Denver Dressmakers is all about!

We led off with some of our amazing suits, pairing some of them with cummerbunds and some with corsets.

We showed some of our rocking tailcoats and some of our cropped jackets.  And we finished up with our mod tea-length dresses and finally a ball gown.

We don’t always show on the runway, but we felt that this was one of our best collections yet and we wanted everyone to see the amazing pieces coming out of our studio here in Denver, Colorado.

We even made it onto the front page of the Denver Post!

Everything we do here is couture—–which means that we can make something just for your event.  So if you see a suit or a dress that you want in a different color (say for a rock performance or a lesbian wedding), just drop us a line and we will discuss how to design the perfect look for you.

Every year, we make clothing for clients all over Europe, Australia, and the US, and we would love to make pieces for you.

Lesbian Wedding Vest Gallery (pt1)

We love making our vest and pant suits for lesbian weddings!

No more frumpy boxy suits with ugly shoulders!

Lesbian Wedding Attire

Our vests can be so much more fitted than a jacket and are structured just like a dress bodice for a beautiful slim shape.

Here are some of the most recent pics from this season:  Weddings in Connecticut, Massachusetts, in California, and in Tel Aviv, Israel.

We are so proud to have made suits for clients in all parts of the world!

The Superhero Gown

The pics show two of our most amazing recent dresses.Silk Wedding Dress

We can make almost anything—–and we are never too afraid to fly head first into the face of the unknown—–at least when it comes to dressmaking.

So we wanted to make a dress that symbolized the superhero spirit!

Handmade Ball Gown

The first dress (in most of the pics) is cut from a gorgeous silk duppioni fabric in black and then hand-painted with metallic silver and gold paint and fluorescent sign painter’s enamel in neon pink.

Colorado Couture Gown

The paint makes the dress literally glow in certain lights.

Under blacklight, the dress is almost shocking.

Black and Silver Gown

The dress has a 1950s style ball gown shape that can be worn bustled or let down for a full train.

It is cut with pleats at the front and side and a princess line in the front.Wedding Dress

Of course, this is only one example of a dress that we can make.

We design each dress from scratch for each customer.

And we work with you to bring out and express your inner super powers.3447001134470007

When a client contacts us to order a dress, we talk with her about the styles that she loves and the life that she lives, and then we start sketching until we get a style that is exactly what she loves.

Then we draft a pattern from scratch that is exactly to her measurements.

il_fullxfull.473298109_qin5Store-bought dresses start out as a B-cup and then need to be altered to fit.

Our dresses start out as a cotton muslin which we mail to you to try on.  You send us digital pics and comments and we alter the patterns to capture exactly the right fit and style.il_fullxfull.473273696_ehbx

Finally, we make a dress that is designed from top to bottom to fit your body and style.

il_fullxfull.473273674_nurwThe final few pics show a second version of this dress that we made for a client.

This dress is cut from 3 tones of silk duppioni for a similar look that isn’t quite as shocking.

We would love to get started designing the perfect thing for you.
