Dressmaker for Mother of the Bride
In these modern times Mothers of the Bride want to look youthful and glorious to celebrate that happy day with the whole family.
She will want a perfect fitting dress in her favourite colour and of course the dress must be comfortable to wear.
Francisca who has been a Mother of the Bride understands how you want to feel.
She can give you advice of how to tie everything together, hair, jewellery, shoes, make-up and more to get the complete “look”.
To have a dress made is a unique experience, with many happy emotions and long lasting memories. It is not a standard procedure for you, but it is for us; we will make you feel relaxed and comfortable.
Our studio is situated in the Perth Hills Jarrah forest, birds will be singing, no parking problems and above all, unlimited time for personal appointments.
First visit we will have an in depth conversation to discover what exactly what you are looking for. Then we sketch your idea just so you will know that we understand your concept.
Maybe you have no idea what you would like to wear. In that case we will explore dress lines, fabric types and colours until we find a dress design which you love.
We will talk about fabrics.
Your measurements will be taken.
Second visit you will fit a toile dress (which is made from a plain fabric).
During this stage small adjustments in the design can still be made without additional costs.
Third visit to fit the real dress.
Sometimes it fits perfectly and is ready to be taken home.
Other times a bit of fine tuning is needed.
Forth visit is the final visit where we will see that the dress fits perfect.
If the wedding is interstate or overseas, the dress will be securely attached to a hanger in a non-transparent bridal bag to hide it from prying eyes.
If we could work non-stop on a gown, meaning that everything necessary is in house, and that the client can be made available any moment during the week, then it takes us approx. 6 to 10 working days. But this is not a real life situation and it will be quite stress full for both parties involved.
Book your first appointment approx. 6 months before the event and we will make a work schedule to ensure that the gown will be ready on time.
During the first consultation, we can give a price estimate; this depends on the complexity of the design and the choice of fabrics. A quote will follow within a few working days.
Quotes or even estimates cannot be given based on looking at a picture in an email.
Mother of the Bride dressmaking service starts at $900.
Bridal gowns at $1,900.
Fabrics are an additional cost.
