Custom Wedding Dress Order- Jahmi

Jahmi contacted me months ago with some inspiration pictures for her custom wedding gown. We exchanged almost 50 emails and came up with her perfect dress custom made in her measurements. 

After reviewing pictures and discussing details, and fabric, I sketched her dress. She approved and I began the process. 

Even though we did not meet in person, she was able to meet with her local tailor to get properly measured.

Sending pictures along the way, Jahmi was able to see her dress while it was getting made. 

Shipped her dress all the way to New Jersey.  Read her review after receiving her wedding dress below: 

"Received my dress and tried on-SO AWESOME! I am just so impressed with your work and so happy about the turn out. Everything came out so great! Will send pictures for sure!!!"

I will post her pictures later this year on this post, and pictures of her custom veil will be up soon. 

 

New Collection Inspiration and BTS

Over the past couple months, I have been busy working on my newest collection, Into the Woods. 

 

I went into my own backyard for inspiration.

I went into my own backyard for inspiration.

Bringing home some twigs and branches to spray paint, and make one-of-a-kind headpieces, and appliques for my bridal sashes. 

 

I want my dresses to make my brides feel like a woodland fairy princess, and that is my inspiration for this collection.

Happy Customers

I was contacted by this pretty ladies mother, who wanted to surprise her with a birthday dress for her 18th. I love getting pictures from my happy customers, and this picture is a gem, the dress matches her decor perfectly. 

She's wearing a custom Marie Dress, from my Marie Antoinette Inspired Bridesmaid collection.

Her Review: "perfect dress for my daughters 18th bday! fabric was amazing! quality made!! thanks so much!!!"


Happy to help with your big day, any way I can. Altered a David's Bridal beaded gown. I took the dress in, up, and added ties to bustle up the train. I also charged her a lot less than her quote from David's Bridal. 

Her review: "The dress fits perfect!! Thank you again. You're awesome "

 

How Custom Made Clothing Works: BTS to Wedding

Updated March 1, 2019

Whether you are going to a art gala , a NYE party or it's your wedding day, you deserve to feel confident and look fierce.  I love creating custom pieces for my customers. Everyone's body type is different. We all have our assets we would like to showcase (bow chica wow wow) and our not so great parts we prefer not to hight light. With each custom piece I will work with you to create a garment  that will compliment your shape and personal style. 

Fear the nip slip no more. Stop doing the top hop. And never again fear showing up to your holiday party in the same thing as Jane from Accounting ( sorry any Jane's in accounting out there, nothing personal )

But how does this process work? 

The first step is discussing your general wants and needs ( including measurements , see measuring guide ). Options for this include meeting in person( Texas residents), Skype, phone or email.  Mood boards or pin boards are great conversation starters. After I have all the information I need I will move forward to sketching phase. I also use this time to gather swatches for our review.   

Once we have agreed on sketches and swatches I will order the fabrics, and first create a sample of your piece in a similar, less expensive fabric so we can see how the piece will look before using our fashion fabric. Then once we get the fit perfect, I will go back to my sewing cave & create the final custom pieces. Time for this process may vary depending on how simple or complicated the piece(s) are. 

Then once I have completed your dress, you can come pick it up at my studio to ensure you have the perfect fit, (additional fittings may apply) or I will send it to you. (plan to receive your dress 8-10 wks before your wear date if receiving by mail for possible alterations)

Last step is for you is to enjoy your new custom made dress and brag to all your friends about it! Well, humbly of course as you hand them my card. 

 

I look forward to doing business with you. 

Cheers!

Cheers!
