Q. What if I am interested in one of your gowns?
A. Use the e-mail link on the "contact us" page to tell us about your dream gown. Include any photos or references that can give us an idea of what you are looking for. We will put together a design packet that includes detailed sketches and fabric swatches. Be sure to give us your e-mail address so we can get in touch with you. We have a very successful system for working directly with our clients via e-mail, postal mail, and faxes.Through inspiration, excellent work and true artistry, we create beauty and joy by assisting brides in fulfilling their dreams!

Q. Can I get a petite or a plus size wedding dress?
A. We can create any of our exclusive designs in a petite bridal gown, a plus size bridal gown, a long waisted wedding dress, a large size wedding dress… whatever you need. We can fit every special shape to show your figure to it's best advantage.

Q. What if I like a design but want in a color other than traditional white or ivory?
A. We have a wide variety of fabrics available. We will do our best to accommodate your requests whenever possible.

Q. How can I be assured the gown will fit?
A. We will construct the gown according to the measurements sent us. As in all wedding gowns, to achieve the perfect, individual fit that every bride wants, make arrangements to have minor final fitting alterations done when the dress is received.

Q. What if I have an unusual figure?
A. We do offer a service that involves constructing a muslin "mock-up" of the bodice. If you're interested in this service, we will send you the mock-up so it can be professionally pinned it to fit you. Then return the mock-up to us so we can cut the gown in the actual fabric.

Q. How long will it take?
A. The average gown takes 60-90 days for final completion, depending on the amount of detail and hand work. We will accommodate rush orders whenever possible for no additional charge.

Q. Do you offer period headpieces to go with the gowns?
A. Yes. We do offer a few period headpieces that we custom create to compliment our gowns. Use the "contact us" form to ask about them and we can email photos of headpieces we have done in the past.

Q. Do you have any ready made gowns available?
A.Our designer creates sample gowns for the purpose of self expression or to explore the idea of a new design. She is sometimes inspired by the beauty or delicacy of a fabric, a work of art, or a unique costume in a film. These gowns are created in standard sizes and then sold for a fraction of what a custom creation would cost. Sometimes they have been worn by models in photo shoots, sometimes just created for the sheer joy of expressing the art of gown making. If you are interested, please refer to our "samples " page and contact us.

Q. Do you design bridesmaids and grooms attire?
A. Yes. However, because we custom create each individual item for you, this service can be quite costly compared to purchasing something ready-made. If you are interested, please email us and we will be happy to give you a bid.
