My situation is a bit different because I live in West Africa, so there weren’t many other options! But I had my dress made by a local tailor. The vast majority of clothes here are tailor made; the tailor was one I’ve used before and knew he did quality work though I don’t think he’s ever made a wedding dress before.

I bought the fabric myself, looked at dresses online to print out pictures to say “the top from this but with sleeves like that” “the skirt from this” etc. I think he made it in about a month, with me trying it on once in the middle, and that gave me the chance to correct something on the back too. Then I brought it back the week before the wedding for final alterations.

A seemstress made the dress for my first wedding… marriage ended in disaster but the dress was beautiful! I still think I may like it better than my new dress which is a 15,000 Monique Lhuillier gown…. I truly loved this seemstress made dress too bad the married was awful….
