We are rebuilding our website for a better experience! Thank you for your patience!
Marie contacted us about creating a custom gown inspired by a designer. After meeting with her and going over everything she was looking for, we came up with a quick sketch. Marie really wanted her gown to make her feel like a "Powerful Princess". The first thing we did was to create a mock-up of a less expensive version of the chosen fabric. After several fittings and modifications, we ended up with a gown that was not a "Powerful Princess", but a "Powerful Queen". Marie is going to look absolutely amazing as she marries the love of her life, Ericka.
Rachel contacted us to work on her very unique and elegant wedding gown. This was a sample dress that she tried on and absolutely fell in love with. The fact that it was a couple sizes small didn't bother Rachel one bit. This super unique dress was widened in the arms and on the sides. We also removed the very uncomfortable body suit part (it was weird). We reworked the back from its original button down mesh to a keyhole opening. We didn't have to hem this dress as the length was perfect (and it has a slit in the front!).
Marley knew she wanted to wear her mom's wedding dress with her burgandy Dr. Martens. She also wanted to change the sleeves to a "swag" style drape sleeve. We did so utilizing a portion of the original sleeves. The zipper back was converted to a corset back with matching tie. The zipper was left in for future generations to reverse the work, if desired. A modesty panel also created from a portion of the previous sleeves.
Courtney wanted to create a type of "jacket" in all black to cover her white wedding dress for the reception. We utilized her mom's wedding dress to create a bodice...after dyeing it jet black. We crafted the skirt of the "jacket" from black chiffon. A black beaded trim was used at the waist and shoulders. To add some glitz (which this bride loves), we used a rhinestone zipper at the back. Chiffon was also used to create the floor length "cape sleeves".
We also added detachable sleeves to her wedding dress.
Casey came to us with a vision to use her mom's wedding dress. She wanted to create a bolero style jacket to wear over her wedding dress for her ceremony. We designed a custom bolero utilizing the chiffon, sleeves, and buttons from her mom's dress. This elegant waist-length bolero was perfect for a Rhode Island wedding in June. Thank you, Casey, for trusting us with your vision!
