The “Same” dress is simply a great, tailored dress (available in three luxurious fabrics, a plethora of colors and four perfect lengths) which can be tied to wear dozens of different ways. Buy one dress, tailor it perfectly and get hundreds of looks out of it! We believe in this multi-function, convertible and versatile fashion and hold it to be central in the future of green design…not only in these economic times, but especially. It’s the “Same” dress…how will you be different?

Additional Options: The “Same” dress is also available with additional options such as a lace mini skirt or ballgown overskirt to further change your look. The ballgown option makes a fun & economical conversion for a bride who wants a wedding gown and reception dress in one. This option is also perfect for debutants and socialites who want a dress to do double duty as a long and short dress. In some colors, additional tie fabrics such as tulle, lace and contrast fabric are also available. Many things are possible with this dress so just ask!
The “Same” Dress also comes as a (very reasonable) formal, trumpet gown for the eco-conscious girl who needs options (and who doesn’t?). It is an incredible deal off a wedding gown at $1225 in Dupioni or Hemp/Silk Charmeuse and $1425 in Silk Shantung. This gown is perfect in a classic red, black or navy for the lady who attends multiple formal events each year as it is a different dress each time you wear it. Further alter the look dramatically just by adding a belt or broach. The trumpet style is designed for easy tailoring and is simple to fit into a perfect mermaid gown. Customize your gown with the add-ons below such as tulle, lace or contrast-color ties and please inquire for couture trimming options.

Bust: With your arms at your side, place the tape measure around the fullest part of your bust, under your arms. Make sure that the tape measure remains parallel to the floor.
Waist: While standing, wrap the tape measure around your natural waistline (the slimmest part of your torso). Keep the tape comfortably loose.
Hips: While standing with your feet together, wrap the tape measure around the fullest part of your body between your waist and your knees. This is approximately 8 inches below your waist. Make sure that the tape measure remains parallel to the floor.
