When we make a wedding dress for a customer, we help you think about not only the parts of the garment that show, but also about the hidden parts of the garment that make the body look awesome.
Our little workshop has been hard at work making dresses and suits for the many weddings that we have booked this summer.
So many amazing looks!
But some of the most fun that I have had has been working on the pieces for a wedding that is particularly important to me—my wedding!
The sketch shows the most recent version of my wedding dress that I am working on.
Not too often that a wedding photographer gets a request to do the engagement photos of the bride in the undergarments that she will be wearing for the wedding!
The corset is made from a heavy denim with steel boning and hand-embroidered sea creatures.
The petticoat (which I will wear under the dress to make it poof out in the back) is made from a cotton twill with horsehair bands on the ruffles to make them keep their shape.
Both pieces are completely washable and can be worn for years to come under other dresses, for costume parties, and on the dancefloor.
The groom is wearing some of our custom tailored menswear pieces (check out www.DenverBespoke.com for more of our menswear).
We are a small couture studio located in Denver, Colorado and we make custom dresses and suits for customers around the world.
One of our specialties is making attire for unique and alternative weddings.
Why get married in a dress made in Asia if you can work with us to design every part of your look down to the undergarments?
For this, we draft a unique pattern to your measurements (we can mail you a measuring tape if you are a distance customer) and then cut and sew a rough cotton mock-up of the dress to mail to you.
You try it on and send us you feedback and digital pics, and we alter the dress pattern to fit you perfectly before we even cut the final pieces. (If you are near Denver, we can also fit this in person).
Plus-size and petite customers are welcomed.
Our prices for a full length dress start at around $1200—but if you just want a petticoat or corset the price will be much less.
Contact Lianna K (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more info and we will get started designing something just for you.
