So I’ve started to come to the conclusion after looking at dresses online that I might not be able to find the “perfect” dress for me in my price range. I was wondering if anyone had ever had theirs made by a seamstress (not online) because I don’t really know where to start. I have a very good idea of what I want the dress to look like, etc, so no worries there. I would be willing to buy the materials myself and hand deliver them to the seamstress. I would prefer to work around the Toledo, OH area, but would go so far as Detroit; Ann Arbor; (maybe even Grand Rapids) Fort Wayne, IN; etc. To specify, I really would prefer to meet the person myself, have THEM do the fitting/measurements, work with them step by step to get the dress of my dreams. I would feel so much more at ease if that were the case, and the gas would be worth it even if I had to drive a few hours. Anyone help?? Know anyone who is skilled enough to take on a a dress design from scratch? Any advice, etc about such a request, or has anyone done this?? Thanks so much!
There’s a picture of the dress, btw. I am small (and petite in front) so strapless isn’t functional, plus I find it incredibly boring anymore. I would love something with a nice open back, v-neck sweet heart neckline that makes me not look like a surfboard in white, but is also tasteful and elegant and not “prom-dress.” I’d want to change the fabric to a silk, satin, charemuese or something of the like… love this so much! Help!!
