Marrisa’s Vintage Style Lace Dress

I won’t copy another designer’s work, I think it is wrong. If a designer no longer carries the design and a bride isn’t able to find it anywhere, or it is unknown who the designer is, or if it is a vintage piece, I’ll make the exception. Marrisa fell in love with a dress she saw, but sadly is was vintage and therefore, not available in any stores.

She sent me all the pictures she could find and asked if it could be duplicated. Hmmm……Did I duplicate it? I’ll leave that up to you.

This design is now available in my shop.

“Lannette made a custom version of a vintage wedding gown that I fell in love with in pictures, but of course couldn’t find anywhere. I couldn’t possibly be happier. Lannette patiently spent quite a long time before I even ordered to help me pick the right fabrics, she communicated with me throughout the process, and the dress I just received is amazing. It’s even better than the pictures, because she suggested some design improvements that I love. It also fits like a glove. Thank you, Lannette!” ~ Marrisa

Amanda’s French Ball Gown

My client found a dress that she really liked, but it needed a few adjustments……..

This is the dress at the time it was purchased.

Amanda really wanted it to have more bustles and a fuller skirt, like a French Ball Gown. So she sent it for  alterations.  It did not go well…..This is what it looked like by the time I got it. Yeah, it needs some work….

47 roses, 14 yards of silk and 3 revisions later….

“Lannette took what a previous seamstress had ruined (previously purchased dress that I wanted to make changes to) and made it more than I had ever hoped for. She was able to see my vision when I couldn’t even fully describe or fully understand what I wanted. The end result was incredible and something drooled over by many brides. I am so thankful to Lannette for her willingness to go above and beyond and all at a reasonable price. And she was so patient with me to boot! I cannot say enough good things about her work and her professionalism. I look forward to finding an excuse to have her make another dress for me, this time from beginning to end .” ~ Amanda

In the end the finished dress(with petticoat) weighed 20 lbs!
