The bespoke process begins with a design sketch. Our customers come to us with vague ideas for us to create something especially for them or their dream outfit  is planted in their mind. We chat to our client and turn the fantasy into a working sketch and out comes the tape measure to start creating the pattern. Sketch blog

The bride wanted the straps on the dress to be wide enough to cover underwear straps. We pondered over colours together and checked how they looked next to our bride’s skin. Colour swatches blog frog 1 crop_edited-1

The two piece outfit was cut out, sewn, fitted, more stitching….then the hand made details like the frog fastenings were crafted. Whilst we are fitting bespoke clothes, we ask our customers to wear the correct shoes and underwear as these really affect the final fit. For this project we started at the planning stages with some rough embroidery ideas, asking our client what her favourite designs and flowers might be. The embroidery evolved as the bouquet was discussed with the florist; we worked on a calla lily design to tie in.     front detail crop blog_edited-2
