You’re looking for the most perfect high-end couture gown for your big day! Let’s get started.!
Color, silk fabrics, and style are all discussed and selected in the beginning stages that lead to a semi-final design. Measurements are taken and initial sewing patterns are created.
A low-cost cotton mock dress will be sewn up to confirm the fit and style before cutting into the actual fabric. This is intended to simulate what your final gown will look and fit like. Sarah will fine-tune the perfect fit and any reasonable design changes may be made at this time.
Your final fabric will be cut and sewn into the gown of your dreams!

Great! Head over to the "Inquiry" page of this website and fill out the form! You will then receive a questionnaire to fill out and Sarah will be in touch with you shortly!
Silk is a natural fiber rarely found in store-bought gowns as the plastic-based fibers tend to be much more budget friendly. However, Sarah stops at nothing to ensure your gown is absolutely perfect, and this includes exclusively using 100% silk fabrics and linings that are typically and historically found in high-end couture gowns. (Also, silk does not always mean shiny!)
I recommend starting this process about 1 year from your wedding date. As these gowns are Made in the USA, shorter timelines are sometimes flexible! Fabric orders alone typically take about 8 weeks.
Of course! They are made to your exact gown's length and trimmed to perfectly coordinate for the MOST beautiful couture bridal look!
As every gown and individual is so different, pricing varies greatly. For reference, material budgets alone can be thousands of dollars as Sarah works with the absolute finest of luxury fabrics!
If you plan on changing weight throughout your engagement, please be very transparent with your plans to Sarah to ensure the gown will fit absolutely perfectly by your wedding date!
Somewhere between four and six fittings will be necessary. Out-of-town brides may need only two. Ask about travel options!
