Announcement   Hi, I’m Melanie, the dressmaker / designer behind Silver Sixpence. Instead of talking about myself in the third person like every other wedding dress website I’d rather give you a little taste of what you will find when you come to visit my studio – the personal touch!

I don’t make cookie cutter, contemporary dresses and I don’t make gowns that look like someone was set loose with a bedazzler!!! What I do make is stunning, simple & classic designs that hark back to the days of the golden years of Hollywood to make you look like a classic movie star.

I specialise in creating vintage inspired wedding dresses from the 1920s to the 1960s and Silver Sixpence emerged from my love of all things vintage from jazz music to antiques and of course fashion. After being introduced to swing dancing in 2004 I was drawn back to the sewing machine as my almost 6ft tall figure never seemed to fit the gorgeous original vintage dresses that I could find for evening events (poor me!). I started creating my own custom vintage reproduction dresses and it wasn’t long before I realised that there was a huge interest in this style of timeless fashion for bridal wear.

In 2009 I started creating stunning one of a kind vintage inspired bridal gowns under the name Silver Sixpence making it the first business in Australia to specialise in vintage reproduction wedding dresses. For my custom gown service I personally create each individual pattern, sew and fit each garment to my client. I also love to work with interstate brides creating custom designs for brides in all locations!! These gowns are all handmade to order in my standard sizes and can be shipped worldwide so that brides everywhere can enjoy their very own Silver Sixpence gown on their special day. I also offer a semi made to measure service for brides who can pop to Brisbane for one or two fittings (just drop me a line to find out more!)

In addition to my dressmaking, I can also create or source bespoke handmade veils and hairpieces to suit your custom Silver Sixpence bridal gown.

With my attention to detail and personal service with each and every bride, I have rapidly become one of the leading designers in Australia to specialise in vintage style wedding dresses with brides all over Australia ordering their very own Silver Sixpence gown (and what a great job it is!!!)

This is a Sample Sale store where you can grab a bargain with ex-sample gowns ready for immediate shipping.

All gowns are hand made in Brisbane using the highest of quality fabrics.
Please contact me for any custom gown requests.

Item smaller than stated in listing. Seller would not refund postage price plus I had to pay return postage. Sad. I would not recommend this seller at all :(

Customer was not happy with the variance in size incurred due to the handmade nature of this item with the overall diameter being slightly smaller than the estimated diameter range. Refund happily given to customer for her custom colour order per my stores policy when a return and refund was requested and customer didn't voice any issues with this return process until now.
