Amanda was able to custom make a mermaid/ocean themed dress for my daughter's first birthday. It arrived very quickly and was absolutely perfect and what I had envisioned. It fit her like a glove and we received so many comments on how beautiful it was. We will definitely be wearing this dress through the summer, and will be purchasing more dresses in the future. Thanks so much for exceeding our expectations!

Perfection! The romper is simply perfect and exactly as I imagined. Sellar was wonderful to work with and made sure I received the item on time. Item is amazing quality and I cannot wait for my little girl to wear it for her one year photo shoot. I will be purchasing again from this shop very soon.

Made to Order wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dresses
Hello and thank you for visiting my shop!
Before beginning my career as a designer I attended FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) and graduated with a degree in fashion design in 2003.
My background is in women's evening wear, wedding dress and children's wear. I spent 5 years working as a designer and pattern maker for several design companies.
In 2008 I started my own business full time with the help of Etsy, a dream come true!
My wedding and bridal party dresses are made to measure and can be customized by color, fabric and/or small detail changes. I do all the design work, fabric selection, pattern drafting and sewing to create specially made garments for my clients.
My wedding dresses can be described as simply modern with a twist of retro and a pinch of whimsy. I create non-traditional wedding dresses with comfort in mind while still being flattering and working with many different types of wedding venues Most of my bridal clients have outdoor weddings in a beautiful garden, beach or rustic country setting.
I also design for the bridal party including bridesmaid and flower girl dresses. I strive to create designs that can be worn again and that are comfortable using natural fabrics including cotton and silks.
My wedding gowns are available to view and order at Mignonette Bridal on Belmont Street in Chicago.
Owner, Designer, Maker Of Dresses
From designing to picking out the fabric to pattern drafting, cutting, sewing and finishing, Amanda Archer custom creates dresses using natural, vintage or eco friendly fabrics and trims.
