Steps to a Custom Gown

  • Step 1: Contact:
    Contact me to make an appointment (for wedding projects I recommend starting at least 3 months before the wedding) The total price will include the time spent working on your gown, plus a per appointment consultation fee of $15 per half hour (to the nearest half hour). Wedding gowns start from $500.
  • Step 2: The first appointment.
    • Discuss your project: design, color, materials, and details. Draw sketches, look at magazines, etc.
    • Take measurements.
    • Make an estimate of the final price.
    • If we decide to proceed with your project, there will be a $100 Deposit payable at the first meeting.
  • Step 3: Mock fitting.
    The mock, made of muslin, helps to adjust the pattern so that your dress will fit perfectly. This is a good time to make changes to your dress.
    If the mock needs more adjustments another appointment will be needed.
  • Step 4: Dress fitting.
    Before the dress is finished two to five fitting appointments may be necessary. I will work with you until you are satisfied with your new gown. Please bring shoes and underwear that you will wear with your gown.
  • Step 5: Last appointment.
    The balance due on your gown is paid. With your permission I would like to make several photos to remember your new gown!
