Lesbian Wedding Suits (and Custom Tailored Suits for Every Event)

 

Lesbian Wedding Suit
The Romeo Suit

Although we call ourselves “Denver Dressmakers,” a dress doesn’t feel quite right for every client and every event.

We specialize in formal attire and a huge part of that is traditional bespoke tailoring.il_fullxfull.530015582_hvgr

We also run the menswear site www.DenverBespoke.com, and we would constantly get enquiries from women requesting custom tailoring.

Soon we incorporated women’s tailoring into our dressmaking site, and today we make at least as many custom women’s suits as we do dresses each year.

An excellent women’s suit can be impossible to find.  It is easy to find a business suit in a rayon fabric with a cropped jacket and a skirt, but what about something a bit more formal, a bit more fitted?  il_fullxfull.530016096_du1t

What about a suit made from a gorgeous menswear wool or a couture silk?  What about a 3pc suit?

We quickly realized that tailoring for a bride meant creating a piece that was as gorgeous, fitted, and flattering as any one of our gowns.

It wasn’t enough just to create a suit with a traditional fit, instead we needed to make pieces that expressed just as much individuality as one of our dresses and flattered each individual body type.Lesbian Wedding Attire

Clients come to us and tell us a bit about the looks and styles they love, and we start sketching until we get the perfect look.  This means that we can do pretty much anything with any color and texture.

We also realized that a traditional menswear fit just didn’t work for women that were a bit more curvy.

IMG_0089A traditional menswear fit would make the shoulders and bust boxy and that look didn’t feel right at all.

But luckily, we also had tons of experience fitting dresses.Brown Women's Suit

By combining the types of internal structuring and pattern-making that is found in a couture wedding gown with traditional tailoring techniques, we were able to develop designs that could be 3-4 inches more fitted in the shoulder and bust while still hanging perfectly smooth on the body.il_fullxfull.473273611_gyvh

For brides with a larger cup size, this meant that we could make the whole look of the custom pieces much more trim.

Black Women'sTuxTo get the perfect fit, we actually cut and sew a complete prototype of the suit and first mail this to the client.  These prototypes (called “muslins”) mean that the client gets to test out the fit and look before we go into the final fabrics.Lesbian Wedding Attire

The bride sends us her feedback and some digital pics of her trying it on and we adjust the pattern and rework the design to get exactly the look she is going for.Corset Back Vest

The entire custom process ensures that every part of the suit from the design to the fabrics and fit is created to match the desires of the bride.

The pics show some of our more recent suits.

The classic look of the Romeo Suit is designed to be a piece that looks extraordinary at a wedding and has just enough satin trimming to give it a formal look.  On the other hand, it is conservative and durable enough for business.

The next suit shows a gorgeous silk brocade vest with subtle cherry blossoms.

This is paired with a custom blouse with a collar that is designed to be worn open and french cuffs.

Other suits show some of our most popular details:  satin and ribbon trims on the lapels, corset lacing on the backs of the vest, three piece suits (where the jacket can be taken off during the reception), gorgeous linings, and classic wools and silks.unnamed-1

The next set (of the black suit) shows a classically tailored black jacket and pant with a grey pinstripe vest.  Picking a vest in a contrast fabric can be an awesome way of adding an additional style detail while keeping to a very traditional look.
