Bespoke 

We offer bespoke bridal, bridesmaids and prom dresses in Macclesfield, Cheshire. Using beautiful natural fabrics we can create a unique eco friendly gown made to fit you.

 

The Experience

A one to one personal experience with Hannah who will design and create your dress. Hannah is a warm and welcoming person who will ensure you are relaxed and enjoying the process. In her home studio in Macclesfield you will meet and design your gown. It will all be handmade by Hannah, a transparent and ethical way to buy your wedding dress. There will be a variety of natural fabrics and laces to chose from and Hannah will guide you through the choices to match your design. Come to your first or all of your appointments with family/friends where you will all be made to feel welcome with music, biscuits and beverages.

We have a limited number of spaces for bespoke makes each year. We currently required about 4 months to complete a make, this may change with demand. We may be able to accommodate a shorter turnaround, you can contact us to enquire if this is possible.

Bridal

Can’t find what you are looking for on our site or elsewhere? Then we can create a beautiful wedding dress just for you! A bespoke gown is a truly special creation and experience.

Our style

We make gowns for all shapes and sizes and ages however we are looking to work with brides who want a wedding dress created from natural fabrics. We have a beautiful collection of organic silks, bamboo, cottons and laces.

The process

  • Your first appointment will be to discuss your ideas and try on some samples to find the right shapes for you. We will look at fabric swatches, draw up a design and take measurements.

  • A toile will then be created in time for your next appointment. This is from a basic fabric to ensure you are happy with the shape and we can adjust to create a perfect fit. We can make design changes at this point. Significant design changes will mean an additional toile appointment.

  • When the toile is the right design and fit we use this to cut your wedding dress. We then have another fitting.

  • We make tweaks to the fit where needed and complete the embellishments and details. We then have another fitting.

  • The dress is completed and we have another fitting to check for a perfect fit. If you are changing we will complete another final fitting shortly before the day.

  • Your dress will be complete and ready to take home 2 weeks before the wedding or travel.

A bespoke consultation costs £25 refundable against your purchase. After the initial consultation if you want to go ahead we take a 50% deposit, which is non refundable. We will begin ordering the fabric and creating a toile. After the second appointment to fit your toile we will take the next 25% of the cost and at your final fitting we take the final payment.
