We will discuss a range of ideas, inspirations, alternatives and budget with you and get to know you a little better, which will help us to create your perfect dress. Some brides come with photos and specific ideas, and we are willing to work and incorporate these into the creative process.
Using drawings and fabric swatches the initial ideas are interpreted and developed in to story boards for a second meeting where the client can choose or amend their design. Measurements will be taken at this stage to begin the pattern work.
A calico toile is made to allow us to perfect the cut and refine the style. This is the chance for the client to see the design on the body and agree any further changes. Once the dress is in work there will be a number of fittings, depending on the complexity of the dress, to ensure that your dress fits like a glove and feels great on the day!
Fittings are informal and fun. Our brides have told us that this has been their favourite part of arranging their wedding! They have looked forward to the fittings and being included in the creative process and are more than a little sad that its over when they take their beautiful dress away from their final fitting! It is truly a compliment to us that so many of them stay in touch after they are married and go on to recommend us to others!
