One dress at a time.....

I studied fashion in Chicago but never felt I could be a part of the mainstream fashion world. I preferred then as I do now to craft each dress, veil, sweater, etc. by hand and make each one a special work of art. I am constantly inspired by nature, vintage clothing, and especially all forms of needlework. My mission is to provide women with truly unique pieces for their most special days in their life as well as for their every day wardrobe. I also provide alteration services for local customers and I love collaborating on original projects. So if you have an idea for a gorgeous gown - feel free to contact me. I'd love to help bring your ideas to life!

Items in my shop are sold "as is" unless it is a custom order item.

Please expect vintage items to have the charm of time passed as they are not brand new.

Ready made gowns are sized according to my size chart (see additional information below) unless otherwise stated. Gowns can be ordered from that sizing chart. It is recommended that you seek a professional for taking your measurements before ordering a gown so you may select the correct size. If you fall between two sizes, choose the larger size to ensure an easier time with alterations. Please also be aware that as in ordering any gown whether through a boutique or online, additional alterations may be needed. This is the responsibility of the customer. I do not offer alteration services.

Any gown you see in my shop can be made in a variety of other fabrics and embellishments. Please convo me if you are curious about the possibilities, I would love to collaborate with you if you would like minor changes. I will correspond with you about the progress of your order with detailed photos. Custom design and handwork is a specialty of mine and working together to bring your ideas to life is what custom design is all about.

Gowns typically require 90 days for completion and shipping. It is the customers responsibility to communicate any change in the completion date and this may incur a rush fee. Rush orders may be available for an additional fee of $100 and will require a 45 day lead time.

All payments, sales are final.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I happily accept Paypal.
Payment must be received within 24 hours or the item will be relisted.

Gowns of $400 + will require a 50% deposit upfront. The remainder of the balance must be paid before delivery of gown. Gowns under $400 must be paid in full.

All payments, deposits, and sales are final.
I ship my items once per week via USPS. Shipping charges are estimated and are the responsibility of the customer. Any preference you may have can be brought to my attention through a convo.

International shipping will be considered per request.

Items are shipped to the address on your paypal account.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not offer refunds or exchanges for any reason. "As is" items are accurately described in the listing and any additional information you require I will be happy to supply you with before purchasing. Custom orders will be communicated in detail and pictures sent along the way. All deposits are non-refundable. All custom orders need to paid in full before delivery. I cannot be held responsible for damages incurred through delivery.
