What a romantic dress!  I would contact a wedding seamstress in your area to find out the price of a custom made dress.  Make sure you ask to see what their previous work looks like to make sure they are up to your standards though!

Oh my god, that’s unbelievable!  I don’t know where you live, but I would imagine that dressmaker prices vary dramatically by region.  I’m guessing it would cost more than a more-basic pre-made wedding dress (especially depending on what types of fabrics you buy for the dress) but less expensive than a high-end dress.  It’s definitely worth checking out!

Where are you located? I know of a place in Ohio and you can e-mail them with the pic for a quote, I was suprised when they told me the price for mine, much cheaper that I woud have thought and of course no alterations. 🙂

That dress is amazing!  It reminds me a little bit of Jackie Kennedy’s dress. 🙂

Well you are in luck then, check this place out and e-mail them with the pic and ask for a quote:  http://www.oohlalabridal.com/

I was surprised how little it would cost to make the dress I want, they quoted me $1000 for this dress:

the dress you love has a real 50s natural waist look. i was looking for a dress like that (but not long) (I am MOB) and ended up buying a vintage pattern (real 50s) on etsy, sewing a couple trial bodices to get it to fit right, and now I have it down!

Oh my goodness…gorgeous!!! I live in Elyria, west of Cleveland. I know that the owner of Parma Tailoring and Alteration (corner of Ridge and Snow in Parma) does do custom wedding dresses. What she has done, or her prices, I’m not sure…I’ve used her for alterations on several dresses and she is AMAZING.

Good luck! Let me know what happens!

Argh!!! This is the story of my life. I spend a lot of time on the vintage section of eBay when I’m looking for new clothes and have fallen in love with countless dresses made for women with outrageous bust to waist ratios.  Damn you, crazy 1950’s bombshells.   No suggestions, just wanted to say lovely dress and that I totally empathize!

What a romantic dress!

The modify charge is so expensive. I just wondering how much you will cost on that.

Okay, I want to switch to this dress too. lol. I love it! I am sure dressmaking varies. Based on the seamstress and the material but I would find a way to get this dress. Did somebody win the auction? If not, maybe you can email the seller and ask them to relist it.

Good Luck!
