This is a beautiful dress, elegant and it fits well. However, the fabric is not as thick as I thought it should be. The delivery was very fast. Thank you.

Hi, I’m The Dressmaker!

After years of frustration with the fashion industry and it's ability to turn a simple piece of clothing into a judgemental dictator of self worth, I decided to have a go at making things better. I quit my day job and went head first into studying dressmaking and the art of making a comfortable, beautiful garment. I knew that I wanted to make a garment that was easy to wear and easy to look great in, so I decided on a silhouette that I thought to be nearly universally flattering and decided on a 'no zipper, no button' policy; all elastic waist and stretchy fabric, all the time! It took close to a year of studying and several hideous test garments made of old bed sheets, but the first Dressmaker collection was finally debuted in the winter of 2014.
I believe that clothing should be fun and flattering, not frustrating. We spend a lot of time worrying about whether we'll fit into something or not, when it's not us that needs to fit in."

All dresses are designed, cut and sewn by The Dressmaker in Edmonton, Alberta.
You can find The Dressmaker on Facebook, Made Urban, Twitter, Instagram or come see me at one of the markets I'll be attending in Edmonton this year!

Thank you for visiting The Dressmaker

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Dressmaker dresses tend to fit slightly bigger than your average store bought brand because, frankly, I disagree with their sizing!
Due to the fact that all Dressmaker dresses are made with a stretch knit, the sizing can be very flexible, but as a general rule the sizing is as noted in the product description.

Care instructions

Care instruction labels are sewn into the skirt seam of each dress. All dresses are recommended to be washed in cold water (preferably on gentle cycle) and hung or laid flat to dry.

Custom and personalized orders

Unfortunately I am not able to do custom work at this time, however, if you see a style that I make and would like it in a fabric that I've made in another style (for example: a bird dress in an Anabel cut), please message me and I'll check my fabric availability!
