Once you have chosen your fabric and commissioned your bespoke wedding gown, we will take all of your measurements six months prior to your wedding date (with the bra you intend to wear on your wedding day). We will use these to make a calico toile- mock up of your wedding dress design which we will then adjust to get that important perfect fit. Then the fun bit starts! Once your toile has been adjusted to fit you perfectly, work then starts on handcrafting your unique wedding dress.
