So beautiful!!! This is the perfect piece for my wedding day- Nikki listened to all my requests and went above and beyond to see them through! Great product and great customer service.

This Etsy seller is very kind and responsive (we wrote back and forth for over 300 messages) and her pricing is reasonable. In total, I ordered 4 pieces of bridal wear: a tulle veil, a tulle skirt, an underdress and a lace bolero. In the end, two weeks before my wedding, the underdress and the lace bolero did not fit. The lace bolero was beautifully dyed and nicely put together. I would have loved to be able to wear it. The underdress was not done well and had no support for my large chest. This was heartbreaking. The tulle skirt and the veil were beautiful and I will wear them with a different corset and underskirt, which I am yet to find. When I talked to the seller, my money was promptly refunded. I wanted to share this review as a cautionary tale of sorts, that ordering online without physical fittings may not work.

5 stars because Nikki was an absolute joy to work with. When the custom garment came in the mail, there were some problem areas where it didn't fit quite as well as the rental piece did... Nothing a little altering shouldn't fix.
Attention to detail
I have been hand-sewing and embroidering since I was a small child. My mother would always make dresses and blouses for my sister and I, and even dolls and toys. I loved watching her create and learned the craft passed down from her mother. I fell out of practice in high school but continued painting, drawing, crafting and creating.
When searching for creative items for my own wedding, I became inspired by new designs and lovely fabrics. I thought there should be an option out there for brides who want something handmade just for them without having to pay and arm and a leg.
I began experimenting with different techniques to craft hair flowers, fascinators, headpieces and veils that are both lovely and affordable. I am always testing and tweaking designs and striving to make every piece better than the last. Each item is made to order in the USA from materials locally sourced whenever possible and sourced from only fair-trade manufacturers inside and outside the US when not.
Living in Anchorage, Alaska I am accustomed to buying special items long distance and because of that I am hyper-aware of the difficulties of ordering wonderful, hand-crafted items online. I strive to make sure every bride is 100% satisfied on her big day and will provide samples of fabric, pictures of every custom design for approval before shipping and will even hand-dye fabric to match a bride's dress.
I pride myself on my craft and love to create one-of-a-kind items for a bride's special day. Please check out our website and Facebook page for updates and specials. Our items are also carried by Bateau Bridal Boutique of Anchorage and you will find our jackets and boleros at Fabulous Frocks of Anchorage. Please be sure to ask for a specific design you like and they will have it available at your dress or accessories appointment.
