Custom Dresses

Bridesmaid . Prom . Occasion

My experience of design and making varies greatly from theatrical costumes to celebrity and corporate events, weddings, prom and children’s wear. Whatever the occasion, I can work with you from design to final garment to create exactly what you have envisioned.

I have enjoyed great working relationships with previous customers and they all have things in common, they can’t find what they want in the shops, nothing seems to fit right or they just want to feel unique and great in what they are wearing. My aim is to make that possible!

The Dress Making Process

This bespoke service starts with a free consultation where we can discuss your ideas and estimations of costs. I can then guide you through the process of finalising designs and fabric selection, providing a series of sketches before you are happy for me to proceed with the creation of your garments based on the final quote provided. The process then includes made to measure pattern construction, fabric and finishings, garment construction and all fittings.

For non-local customers or events, garments can be made to a standard UK size which can be discussed during the initial consultation. I am based in Billingshurst, West Sussex, and work with brides from Horsham to Chichester and up to Guildford and Dorking in Surrey including all surrounding areas.

FAQs

How much does it cost to have a dress made?

Prices vary depending on design and fabric selection to suit all budgets. Occasion wear starts from £150 and children’s wear £80.

Can you make something from fabric I have already bought?

I am happy to use fabric supplied by yourself as long as it works with the design you are hoping to have made. This can be discussed at our initial consultation.

Do you do menswear?

I specialise in womenswear but often find bridal parties would like specific items like waistcoats or ties to match the overall look which I’m happy to provide. Please contact me for more information.
