Handmade Dresses - simple, pretty, unique

Welcome to our shop! I am Colleen, the owner of French Knot. Together with my sister, Dorothy, we design and sew some very unique bridal designs. Our goal is to bring high quality wedding dresses to brides who want something a little different.

Colleen-
I've been sewing since childhood, and have really grown to love it. After jumping into the amazing world of couture sewing, I decided to bring my skills to Etsy and make a business out of it. This is truly the best job I've ever had... next to motherhood, of course!

Dorothy-
In September my sister (and master seamstress) Dorothy joined French Knot. Dorothy has a background in Fashion Design, Fashion Merchandising, Alterations, and many years of practical application. There are very few dressmakers I feel comfortable with adding to my team, but Dorothy was first on my list. I look forward to working with her on designs and construction ideas this year, as well as filling orders more quickly.
