Has anyone bought a custom made wedding dress online? And how do you find a custom dressmaker? My best advice is start in your immediate circle and work your way out - do you know any seamstresses or amazing sewers? Do any of your friends or family known any? If not, search online or in the Yellow Pages for someone locally.
Local. A good tip for finding a seamstress is calling the costume department of your local theatre. Costume ladies are kickass stichers and love creative challenges. Also, be wary of buying really cheap fabric; ask to see some samples, pay attention to quality, look at the seams, ask to see photographs, etc. Once you find a seamstress you like, bring in as many photos as possible to show garment construction, color, style, fabric, etc. Your seamstress will probably have her own opinions on what will work fabric-wise. Settle on what you need and go fabric shopping or take her with you to do so. Then turn it over to her.
Online. If you just can't find a seamstress near by, there are some truly phenomenal indie dressmakers who work online, just like Wedding Dress Fantasy, 2in1WeddingDresses, Wai-Ching... 2in1WeddingDresses can order a custom-made design based on various sources of inspiration, or alternatively choose a gown from our bridal collection. 2in1WeddingDresses can customize their gown in so many way, such as the length of train, the hem-line, the closure, neckline and color to name just a few!
