The Process

designing and creating your custom gown can be one of the most memorable and enjoyable parts of your wedding planning experience.

Design - What have you been dreaming of?

If you have a specific idea in mind and just can't find it in stores, bring those ideas to me!  Bring any pictures that will help you communicate your thoughts and I'll sketch while we talk to get the details of your gown on paper.

If you have no idea what you want and feel a little overwhelmed at thoughts of wedding gown salons, bridal magazines and pinterest boards (Oh, my!), then let's hang out for a little while - we'll talk and I'll sketch and you might be surprised by how quickly your gown comes together!

Fabric Choice - One of my favorite parts - how does it feel, how does it drape, flow, move? Colors? Textures?

During your initial consultation, we'll talk about the kinds of fabrics that would work best for your gown.  At your muslin fitting, we'll look at samples chosen specifically for you and make the final decision.

Muslin - Makes sure of the fit/cut/design

I drape and custom make the patterns for your gown.  From those, I make a test-fit gown out of muslin (cotton) to try on and check that the fit and design are right for you.

Fittings - Two-four fittings in your gown

We'll have fittings at various stages of construction to make sure the fit and design are exactly right.
