vision and expertise

We regularly shorten or take in dresses; we will add or remove net petticoats; shorten or add sleeves; alter a neckline; add or remove straps.


With guidance from Lesley the client has complete control throughout all stages of design and development. You will be able to have individual details that will create a unique and personal gown, the dress of your dreams.

Having your dress custom made, from the outset will ensure timing is free of stress for your day and that no additional costly alterations crop up. Watching the design come to life through the processes is a fascinating experience.

Step 1: Design Consultation

At this meeting we discuss your journey and the research you have gathered while looking for your dream dress. Lesley will sketch your ideas and add designs of her own to give you the perfect dress based on all your suggestions, ideas and research. Lesley guides you in the fabric, lace and trimming selection so you know you will love it.

Step 2: Toile Mock-up

Appointments are scheduled and numerous measurements are taken. We advise you to be professionally measured and fitted for your chosen bra or basque. We make a calico toile (mock-up) of the dress and lesley fits this to you, using her expertise and trained eye adjustments are pinned to give a perfect vision of your dream dress. Every detail of the design is scrutinised and perfected before the silk fabric is cut while lesley gives expert advice.

Step 3: Dress Fitting

We make your gown to an advanced stage and the finished look is easily appreciated. The cut of your made to measure dress will be personal to you, to enhance and flatter your figure. There will be several fittings and each time small adjustments are made to perfect the look even more.  The hem will be pinned while you are wearing your shoes to the correct length making it easy to move in and you the confidence that you look stunning.

Step 4: Fittings

Some brides lose weight in the build up to their special day and this is easily adjusted as the dress has already been made to your precise shape. Jewellery, veils and headpieces are all available to try.

Step 5: Final Fitting

Your dress is given a final fitting to ensure you have the perfect finished piece. The gown will be an exquisite and unique garment that has been skillfully handmade. It will be the flawless and impressive made to measure wedding dress, unique to you as you imagined. This is at least one month before the wedding date.

  • The patience she has had has exceeded my expectations. I would recommend her to anyone and will miss our catch ups! The dress is exactly what I had visualised and Lesley has made that a reality. Thank you so much.

  • My Mother of the Bride outfit is individually handmade, exclusively mine and there was no risk of meeting anyone wearing the same. I had so many compliments on the day and afterwards, I've lost count!

  • Just to let you know the dress was the star attraction at my wedding on Sunday. Everyone, even the men, commented on how fabulous it was. The ladies wanted to know where I bought it from. We had a fantastic day.
