Great seller to work with. She has gone above and beyond to find the right fit for me. Very thorough and creative with presenting options for my dress design. I'd happily recommend her shop and design services. Lovely seller!

Beach Wedding Dresses and other fun stuff!

Sans Souci Dresses are comfortable carefree dresses that make you look beautiful without breaking your bank..... or your back. Look, I could totally buy an expensive pattern and make you a fabulously expensive dress with the most expensive fabrics and still make a profit while charging you a slightly lower price than the couture houses but there's lots of that out there. Instead, I make my own designs, with expensive fabrics and couture techniques that not only look fabulous but FEEL fabulous and still at an even lower price point while still making a profit.

A lot of wedding gowns are meant to be worn only once and frankly, no one could stand to ever wear them more than once because they keep you from breathing, make you sweat, need constant adjusting, and/or require handmaidens to help you navigate narrow halls, bumpy paths, and washroom stalls. Take a picture quick because smiling is the last thing on your mind.

"Sans Souci" means "carefree, without troubles" and is my family's little in-joke since it's impossible for us to be without souci since our family name is "Soucie". It's also double punny for those of us who have married and are without our "Soucie" name any more. This aside, it's the best way to describe my philosophy when it comes to couture. A dress should be stunningly beautiful but so comfy that it doesn't occur to me to change my behaviour based on what I am wearing. So, with beautiful fabrics and details, I make my designs (or alter old patterns) so that you can sit down, turn around, and party down without worry. A lot of my dresses are perfect for beach weddings since traditional wedding gowns are not very beach friendly and hey, everyone wants to have fun at the beach!

Here is what you can expect in a Sans Souci Dress:
1) beautiful fabrics
2) beautiful textures and colors
3) cute, quirky, stylish, modern, vintage-inspired, figure flattering OOAK dresses

I create both a medium and large size of most designs, as well as a small or xlarge when the design fits and I have enough fabric. However, I am also happy to work with you on a custom dress based on your ideas.

All dresses are made by me in my home and while I am very skilled, I do not have industrial tools so there may be minor irregularities that only as master seamstress would notice.


PLEASE NOTE OUR PHOTOSHOP POLICY:
The only photo alteration we perform is to crop photos and put our watermark/logo on the pictures. Occasionally we may take 2 or more photos and put them next to each other in one large composite photo. Occasionally we may use photo of a previous dress of the same design (from our shop) to save on models but it will be clearly labelled and all other photos will be of the actual dress that you will receive if you purchase the item. Additional photos from different angles are often available upon request, just send a convo. We do not post photos of other people's work.

Currently I only ship within Canada and the U.S.A., please convo me if you would like to make a purchase but are outside of this area. Maybe we can work something out. All duties, taxes, and fees that apply for orders destined outside of Canada are the purchasers' responsibility.

These rates below are for dresses shipped using Canada Post (Express):

Additional policies and FAQs
Measurements:
A custom order requires your measurements: height, bust, bust cup size, waist, hips, and waist-to-hem length. In rare cases your shoulder circumference is needed.

When measuring, please wear the underwear you will wear with the dress (if you plan to wear some) as this can change amounts by inches.

If you like one of my designer dresses but would like a custom size, please don't buy the dress that does not fit you. It's much easier for me to make a whole new dress to your size so please convo me and we'll make a custom order. Custom sized dresses (assuming I can still get the fabric, etc.) usually cost the same or less than $50 more.

If for some reason you contract me to make a customer order, make a deposit, but do not pay the balance due within 120 days of the dress's completion (or other agreed deadline), I reserve the right to to keep the deposit and re-sell your dress to someone else.

If you desire to resell you dress at a later date and it's still in good shape, please contact me and I can resell it for you and you will receive a 40% consignment upon its sale (shipping not included).
