Bespoke bridal design
Bespoke bridal dress design and dressmaking, handmade for you by me, and from scratch, in my workshop in an old textile mill in Manchester city centre which has been there since the beginning of the industrial revolution. The wedding dress design and making includes sketches, a bespoke pattern design and 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.
I also offer a re-design service if you would like me to change your wedding dress into a different style, or even turn it into a christening gown after your wedding if you have a baby. 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 dresses 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, your weight changed a bit just before your wedding.

Prices include design sketches, materials sourcing and sampling, bespoke pattern design, a "toile" or "muslin" (a full-size fabric mock-up of the dress that would be tailored and fitted to you in person before making the dress in your choice of materials), all the fittings, and finally, making your dress in your choice of materials, in stages, so that you can try it on a few times before it is completed. I even include a free of charge alteration if your weight changed slightly just before your wedding day.
Bear in mind that every dress is priced individually subjected to labour time, therefore the price will be unique to each design.
Nothing fits and feels like having a custom made garment for a special occasion!
