I bought this robe to wear as I got ready on my wedding day. The unique, luxurious fabric and sexy, flattering cut are perfect, it also washes well. I could not be happier with this item. Highly recommend!

About

Handmade Loveliness

Katie Jean is a line of dresses, accessories and boudoir styles that are unique, non-traditional and simple.



{{We will be taking very limited orders, please inquire about shipping times before ordering}}



{history} Katie Jean's line of Handmade Loveliness began in 2008 bringing a relaxed artistic feel to the bridal dress market. Everything was built from the ground up, by hand, from the business to the dresses.

{fabrics} Katie hand selects fabrics that are natural, beautiful, soft and luxurious, fabrics that make you feel as special and perfect as you look!

{designs} Inspired by nature and vintage styles, Katie creates comfortable dresses that make you feel like your most beautiful self. She mixes timeless fabrics like lace and silk with current trends. Borrowing details from vintage patterns, she creates new silhouettes for every body type.

{process} Each part of the process is completed with Katie's artistic eye and attention to details. All pattern making, cutting, sewing and detail work is done in the studio by Katie or one of her amazing staff working along side her.

Shop policies

+Welcome+

These policies are to let you know what to expect when working with me and to give me a basis for running my business. I am positive that there will be times when I bend or change my policies based on certain situations, and that will be to my discretion. I try to be fair and kind, but please don't ask me to lower my prices because I calculate these based on time, cost of materials, and business expenses. Thank you for shopping for handmade goods and supporting independent designers!

Additional policies and FAQs
Each listing will have sizing information. It varies by size as some are pre-determined sizes that you choose off of a size chart, and others we ask you to send custom measurements.

The sizes shown in the charts are the measured size of the garment, base your selection on your largest measurement, because it is easier to have altered smaller in some areas if needed. If you want it to fit tight, select at or smaller than your size and to fit looser, select a size up. The stretch lace is forgiving, but you should check your measurements before ordering and please select carefully because we don't offer returns on dresses made to order.

Please be sure to read all information in each listing you plan to purchase and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions!

We do not offer alteration services and are not responsible for the cost of alterations, so please choose sizes carefully.

My dresses are my designs and if you would like to change details about them, please ask and I will let you know if I am able to accommodate. If so, there will be an added cost ($30-$200) pattern fee per change for altering my patterns and I will only change two style details (ex. add sleeves, or change neckline or waistline). If you would like more changes, it will be considered a custom design and we will follow my custom order procedures. I can create a muslin sample of a dress style for you for $75. Please contact me if you are interested and I can give you more details. Alterations are not included in the price.

Thanks!!
