Important

This information in no way reflects a final quotation. A final price will only be determined after the first consultation.

All of these estimates are subject to change, and are calculated by using high quality materials and Workmanship.
Cost is also determined by calculating the amount of hours needed to create your gown.

This highly depends on the style of dress you want to have made. Our general rule is 6 – 10 months before you want to collect the gown from our studio. This time frame is just a guideline, and a more exact timeline will be discussed during consultation. Rush orders are possible with an appropriate rush fee.

Wear the correct undergarments – This is very important to get the most accurate measurements. Even if you want a built-in bra support in your dress, I still need to get an accurate bust circumference.
Please wear (bring with) a snug fitted tank top – I will be making reference marks on your body with string and/or an erase-able marking pen.
We handle every client discreetly and professionally and take high regard to make sure you are comfortable at all times.

The main determining factors are:

  • Silhouette
  • Type of fabric used
  • Inter construction
  • Amount of fine detailing and lace

Our gowns are made from scratch for each client. From the pattern which is drafted to your measurements, to the design and embellishments. Each gown can take hundreds of hours to construct. Our most basic gowns take at least 50 hours to create and the time investment increases from there depending on the complexity of your style.
