This dress is just gorgeous. I ordered it kelly green and the combination with the white lace is so beautiful and you can see the love and the workmanship in it. Can't wait to see my daughter in it at my wedding this summer. Thank you so much Amanda! I will definitely come back for more (and for me next time!)

About

Made to Order wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dresses

Hello and thank you for visiting my shop!
Before beginning my career as a designer I attended FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) and graduated with a degree in fashion design in 2003.
My background is in women's evening wear, wedding dress and children's wear. I spent 5 years working as a designer and pattern maker for several design companies.
In 2008 I started my own business full time with the help of Etsy, a dream come true!

My wedding and bridal party dresses are made to measure and can be customized by color, fabric and/or small detail changes. I do all the design work, fabric selection, pattern drafting and sewing to create specially made garments for my clients.

My wedding dresses can be described as simply modern with a twist of retro and a pinch of whimsy. I create non-traditional wedding dresses with comfort in mind while still being flattering and working with many different types of wedding venues Most of my bridal clients have outdoor weddings in a beautiful garden, beach or rustic country setting.

I also design for the bridal party including bridesmaid and flower girl dresses. I strive to create designs that can be worn again and that are comfortable using natural fabrics including cotton and silks.
My wedding gowns are available to view and order at Mignonette Bridal on Belmont Street in Chicago.
