- Wedding: August 2011
I searched the forums and didn’t see this question listed for the Cleveland/Youngstown area, but forgive me if a similar question was posted before. My dream wedding dress may exist, since I’ve seen photos that come close through many a google image search. It must be part of a collection from a previous season, since the dress only seems to be available at those sketchy Chinese “$3000 gowns for $100” websites.
I am searching for a PHENOMENAL dressmaker or seamstress who can recreate my dream wedding dress using images I’ve accumulated, as well as my detailed description. I lack the skills necessary to sew it myself, but I’m very good at communicating exactly what I’m looking for. My fiance and I currently live in a small town (Hubbard) near Youngstown, Ohio, but the wedding will take place in my hometown of Cleveland, and I could come in to Cleveland as often as needed for fittings, etc.
If you have personally worked with, or know someone who has personally worked with such a professional, please give yourself a Karmic boost and take the time to post a response. I’ve searched high and low and can’t even find a reputable site with authentic reviews (rather than paid ads disguised as reviewed listings) for local dressmakers. The closest I’ve found is Angie’s List, but so few of their listings have actually been reviewed.
Thanks so much for reading this long post, and have a great day!
p.s. the dress I have in mind is Victorian style with an off-the-shoulder boned corset bodice and full ballroom or princess/a-line skirt.
