I design and create dresses in my small atelier in the center of Kyiv. I adore couture tailoring, and this is why Cathy Telle gowns are 70-80% hand-made. When cutting out lace fragments, I strive to keep the ornament intact, and for this reason some details have to be sewn together by hand using a transparent threat so that the ornament maintains its integrity. I also make most gown fittings, such as loops made from silk thread, silk petals for decoration, and fabric covered buttons, myself in my workspace. I often dye fabrics into semitones for the decorations to look more varied and voluminous. All decorations of our gowns are hand-made. I pay a lot of attention to the creation of the template and the mock-up dress, as my main objective here is to make sure that the dress will look on the bride exactly as she expects.
We make dresses for all our brides based on their individual measurements and wishes.
We can combine details from different gown models (e.g. skirts or bodices), change colors and fabrics.
If you wish to change the lace, I can also create one specifically for you. I will draw the ornaments and work on teh lace machine myself.
I can also create a completely new gown design for you based on your preferences.
REMOTE ORDER SERVICE
My workspace is located in Ukraine and I realize that not many of the brides will be able to come for the fitting. I have set up the order placement so that our cooperation will be safe for you and you will receive exactly the dress you want. I will discuss all the details with you until your dress is finished and delivered to you.
- First, you will receive a simple to follow illustrated instruction for taking measures.
- Since it will be impossible to try on the gown, I will create a mock-up dress and will send it for you to try on. It will allow to double-check the size and confirm all important details, such as the place of the waistline, depth of the neckline, and sleeve length, and to make all necessary alternations.
- Also you will receive fabric samples and will be able to choose and confirm the fabric for the gown.
- You will receive pictures of the gown making process to confirm every detail.
- I will send you pictures of your finished gown before shipping.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR GOWN SPECIAL
Two years ago I found a piece of my grandma's handcrafted lace and I felt like she is still with me. I decided to keep this lace for my future wedding gown and though that it will be a nice idea to give an opportunity to every Cathy Telle bride to make her gown even more special. If you have some piece of great personal value to you, we can add it to your wedding gown as a visible or hidden detail. This is a good occasion to evoke family memories and find things that remind you of those you love. You can also ask your mother or another person to make this small personal detail for you. Here is a short video about one of our brides. m.youtube.com/watch?v=ghh42LNmu2Q

Working with Cathy was a DREAM! If you are thinking about ordering a dress from Cathy Telle, DO IT!! I had my original wedding dress fall through and contacted Cathy with a very limited time frame. She reassured me she would make me a dress on time, and was so communicative throughout the whole process. I appreciated that she sends a mock up dress to make sure everything fits--it made me feel she really cared about my experience and ensuring my dress was right. The dress itself is a work of art. I cannot wait to wear this dress on my wedding day.
I still have no proper words for Cathy, her team, and her stunning dress. I ordered my dress and did all the measurements from a distance never seeing her. The whole time she communicated every step of the process. So many things happened in my life and ultimately I needed a rush on my dress. 3 weeks! Her team worked so hard to complete my dress and it arrived 2 days before my ceremony. It fit absolutely perfectly. I’m still amazed at this!!It’s the most beautifully made dress I have ever seen. It felt like pajamas!! My husband walked right into the door of his car when he saw me. 😍 STUNNING. We ran around our property all night and I never took it off. Wish I could wear it everyday. Thank you so much Cathy for sharing your gifts with the world. You have such an incredible gift. I’m still speechless.
Cathy and her team made the dress of my dreams for the most special day of my life ! She was always very quick to respond, easy to communicate with, and I'm forever grateful for her and her team. <3 <3
