And every dress that we make is a distinct work of art—designed and created to have the perfect fit and look for an individual bride.
Often we sketch, design, and source fabrics for the dresses for months before we even start making the dress.
And the whole process of making and fitting the dresses (which we can do locally or via the mail) is intense.
We spent 40 hours just sewing the lace and trimmings to this dress—and creating the beaded tassel for the back.
But in the end, the process is worth it.
It is a dress that will symbolize you and your hopes and aspirations.
Having the perfect wedding dress isn’t just about how the dress looks, but also about what the dress means.
And taking the time to design a unique wedding dress makes for a piece that is interwoven with your life.
This dress is designed with an art deco look in mind.
A bit of the silent movie star on the silver screen.
A bit of the Grecian drapery inspired pre-Raphaelite look.
The dress itself is made from a gorgeous lavender chiffon with a crisp iridescent duppioni skirt, and multiple vintage laces and trims.
Glass and seed beads were strung together to make the gorgeous detachable jewelry for the back neck.
From the front the dress has a trim silhouette, but from the back the chiffon drapes into a beautiful cascade.
Everything in the color scheme compliments the bride’s features which is amazing for a wedding dress—because not that many of us look good in stark white.
The sketches show two iterations of the dress—-both the initial concept and finally a colored illustration.
Also shown is the cotton “muslin” where the trims are just drawn on in sharpie.
For local customers, we fit this in person.
For long-distance customers, we mail you the muslins and you snap a pic or two so that we can adjust the pattern to get just the right look.
We can really make just about anything.
