Wedding dresses

I have had the pleasure of making some unique wedding dresses for some lovely ladies recently.
Thanks to my facebook page and word of mouth I was contacted and asked if I could create something that combined the ideas and dreams of my clients and my individual, quirky style.
Each dress was a challenge and although I found it quite stressful at times, I loved making my very first corset style bodice, ordering special tartan cloth (even if it took me ages to make the first cut),
finding beautiful pieces of vintage lace and linens that would go with each dress, gathering up different fabrics and piecing them together...adding details and seeing the finished garments.
The best part had to be seeing the photos of the weddings themselves and knowing that everything was perfect.

  7. You’ve done a great job with all those lovely wedding dresses and it shows that you’re really good at it. My grandma is a seamstress so she is also making a nice gown for my cousin’s wedding, which will be in a few months at one of the best Los Angeles event venues. So far my grandma has designed gowns for every wedding we have had in the family.
