Adrienne Walsh's Profile

About

Gaetana is my first name but I insisted on being called Adrienne as a young child because I did not like being called GUY! After 40 years of being a woman in a man's field -- chemical engineering -- I have time to do some of the creative things that I love, namely custom sewing. I made my first wedding dress over forty years ago. Since then, I have made many bridal gowns for friends and family as my gift to the bride.
I want you to look your best on the most important day of your life. With my engineering ability, I have learned how to custom fit patterns especially for those that find ready made dresses just do not fit well. Your dress will fit you perfectly and you will feel beautiful in it because each dress is cut and sewn specifically for your measurements. Gowns can be as extravagant or as simple as you like.

I want you to look your best on the most important day of your life. With my engineering ability, I have learned how to custom fit patterns especially for those that find ready made dresses just do not fit well. Your dress will fit you perfectly and you will feel beautiful in it because each dress is cut and sewn specifically for your measurements. Gowns can be as extravagant or as simple as you like. Even those who are working within a budget can look just as fabulous as the bride who spent thousands by having a simple gown that fits to perfection because a perfect fit is always flattering.
From the traditional, to the totally non-traditional, because each item is custom made according to your wishes, you will always have the gown you really want.

The steps to achieving that prefect fit begin with a free consultation and measuring session. during which we discuss the look that you want. For out-of-town customers this is by Skype. Next, comes doing a custom duct tape dress form to use in drafting your design and making a cotton mockup that I will send for fitting during another Skype session.

After we get the perfect fit, your gown will then be made in the fabric you have chosen and we will do another fitting. Finally I will add the finishing touches -- beading, the bustle or whatever else is needed to make your gown your very own.

Because custom designed dresses are fit to the uniqueness of the customer and since the customer will be fitted throughout the construction process, no returns are allowed; alterations will be performed if needed to achieve the correct fit.

I also create custom Christening Gowns, made from new fabrics or the Mother's, Grandmother's or even Great-Grandmother's wedding gown, or a combination of all three!
