weddings + custom dresses

in the mood for love

Making Andrea’s wedding gown is my favourite project right now


Her mother dug up heirloom lace that her grandmother made, and we’re incorporating the materials into the dress design.

Andrea asked me to do a really big bow on the side of the dress, here it is!  Very Lanvin-archive-inspired.

Here’s a close-up of the different beading techniques we developed.  There’s 3 shades of white sequins.

I can hear birds singing.

Sarah’s Wedding Dress


Sarah asked me to do her wedding dress; we designed it together with the image above as our point of reference.  Since this was a new pattern for me, I started with a muslin, and we discussed every detail from the pleating to the placement of the ruffles.

She wanted a color she would wear again, so we did cream silk chiffon with gold metallic threads running through. To emphasize her height, we opted for a column shape, instead of the bias-cut a-line shape of the original style.


The wedding was so much fun!
She danced the night away.
