Bespoke bridal design
Bespoke bridal dresses are all designed and handmade for you by me, and from scratch, in my workshop in an old mill in Manchester city centre, and they include a full size"toile" or "muslin" (cotton fabric mock-up of the dress) to test fit and tailor to you, before creating the garment in your choice of fabrics. I can also embellish your dress or add a train, create matching accessories and pieces, and even turn it into a christening gown after your wedding if you have a child. If you have your heart set on a design you have seen in a picture, it is also possible to recreate. Bespoke designed, beautifully handmade, custom wedding gowns and frocks, created for you in my studio in Manchester (UK) with your ideas and my skills...
I also include a free of charge alteration if, for instance, you lost a bit of weight just before your wedding.

Plans & Pricing
Prices Include everything: Design sketches, fabric sourcing and sampling, fabrics and materials, bespoke pattern making, a "toile" or "muslin" ( a full-size fabric mock-up of the dress, made beforehand and fitted to you in person), all the fittings, and finally, making your dress in your choice of fabrics in stages so that you can try it on a few times before it is completed. Bear in mind every dress is priced based on the amount of materials needed and their individual price, plus labour time, therefore the price will be unique to each design . It is a very easy for a simple wedding dress to take a whole week of full time work to make, so prices are not comparable to those of off-the-peg garments, however nothing fits and feels like having a custom made garment for a special occasion.
